Submission of assessment items
Extensions & Late submissions
Assignment submission deadline will be followed strictly.
Special assessment requirements
WIL and Flipped-classroom delivery will be followed. Regular on-campus attendance is highly anticipated, (online content support will be provided). It is strongly recommended to read and prepare all the lecture/lab contents and discussion items before the respective workshops.
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.
All workshop sessions will be highly interactive and hence students are strongly encouraged to participate actively.
Required IT skills
