In order to pass this unit it is most important that students pay close attention to:
- assessment requirements and due dates
- expectations around academic integrity
- engaging diligently with the teaching material
If you are struggling to meet these expectations you should let your unit convenor know and seek help and support as soon as possible. There is a lot of support available to you but if you leave things to the last minute, or fail to ask for help when it is needed then it becomes harder to provide assistance.
If you do not meet these expectations it will not be possible for you to pass the unit.
Required IT skills
This unit involves online meetings in real time using the UCLearn teaching site. The video conferencing tool allows you to communicate in real time with your lecturer and other students. To participate verbally, rather than just typing, you will need a microphone, which will generally be available via your smartphone or webcam camera.
Work placement, internships or practicums
For students requiring on-campus classes to fulfil their Face-to-Face teaching obligations, we will be offering the option of attending tutorials face to face for the presentations (Assessment 2) to be delivered in weeks 7-11.
More information about this option will provided on Canvas LMS during semester.
