Students have a responsibility to uphold University standards on ethical scholarship. Good scholarship involves building on the work of others and use of others' work must be acknowledged with proper attribution made. Cheating, plagiarism, and falsification of data are dishonest practices that contravene academic values. Refer to the University's Student Charter for more information.
To enhance understanding of academic integrity, all students are expected to complete the Academic Integrity Module (AIM) at least once during their course of study. You can access this module within UCLearn (Canvas) through the 'Academic Integrity and Avoiding Plagiarism' link in the Study Help site.
Use of Text-Matching Software
The University of Canberra uses text-matching software to help students and staff reduce plagiarism and improve understanding of academic integrity. The software matches submitted text in student assignments against material from various sources: the internet, published books and journals, and previously submitted student texts.
It is noted that there is an anecdotal link between attendance and engagement in tutorials and success in the unit. Participation, or engagement, is part of the learning process so it is assumed students will attend the majority of classes.
This unit has one face-to-face tutorial only. Students are expected to complete the week's learning (indicated by 'Asynchronous' activities within the timetable of activities) in a self-directed manner. This takes place in Canvas and participation is noted by Canvas.
Required IT skills
Students must have access to a Laptop or a Desktop computer, and the internet. If not please use the computers made available on Level B in the library.
Other than the SSAF there are no other fees attracted by this unit.
