Learning materials in Canvas.
Submission of assessment items
Special assessment requirements
An aggregate mark of 50% is required to pass the unit.
Academic Integrity Module (AIM):
The Academic Integrity Module (AIM) is an introductory eLearning course for undergraduate and postgraduate UC students in all disciplines. This course will help develop your knowledge and understanding of academic integrity emphasising the values and skills necessary, so you are informed about how to avoid plagiarism and academic misconduct. Further details will be provided in Canvas.
Students must complete the Academic Integrity Module (AIM) in order to pass this unit.
The final unit mark will be converted into the final unit grade following the university grading schema as described in the policies and procedures.
The unit convenor reserves the right to question students on any of their submitted work for moderation and academic integrity purposes, which may result in an adjustment to the marks awarded for a specific task.
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.
Weekly online recorded lectures
Review of learning materials in Canvas and preparation for quizzes, tutorials and peer assessment of group presentations
Students are required to go through all learning materials and activities regularly. There is a direct correlation between success in this unit and class/tutorial attendance virtual or face to face. Students with poor engagement will find it difficult to keep up with the workload.
Your participation in class and in tutorials will enhance your understanding of the unit content and therefore the quality of your assignments. Lack of participation may result in your inability to satisfactorily pass assessment items.
Engagement with the unit activities is expected also as a means to desmonstrate your professional conduct.
All students are expected to complete the Academic Integrity Module (AIM) or indicate that they have completed it already in another unit. You can access this module within UCLearn (Canvas) through the 'Academic Integrity and Avoiding Plagiarism' link in the Study Help site.
Required IT skills
General IT skills.
This unit involves online meetings in real time using the Virtual Room in your UCLearn teaching site. The Virtual Room allows you to communicate in real time with your lecturer and other students. A camera and microphone are required to participate in the tutorial sessions. For best audio quality we recommend a microphone and speaker headset. For more information and to test your computer, go to the Virtual Room in your UCLearn site and 'Join Course Room'. This will trigger a tutorial to help you familiarise with the functionality of the virtual room.
