Submission of assessment items
Extensions & Late submissions
NB: Assessment items must be uploaded as a single WORD DOCUMENT only (please do not submit in any other format e.g., PDF).
Late submission of assignments:
Late submission of assignments without an approved extension will result in a penalty of 5% reduced marks from the total available, per calendar day late. An assignment submitted over 7 days late will not be accepted. Approval of extenuating circumstances will be dependent upon the production of supporting documentation and at the discretion of the unit convener.
Extensions: Extensions must be applied for before the due date.
Students can apply for an extension to the submission due date for an assessment item on the grounds of illness or other unavoidable and verifiable personal circumstances. Documentary evidence will be expected for an extension to be granted.
It should be noted that such documentation will be considered but will not guarantee that the application will be successful. The Unit Convener will decide whether to grant an extension and the length of the extension.
Special assessment requirements
In addition to the aggregated score of 50% for Assessment Items 2 and 3, students must achieve an UP in Assessment Item 1 in order to pass overall.
The unit convener reserves the right to question students orally about any of their submitted work.
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.
Health workshops = 15 hours
Physical Education workshops = 15 hours
Personal skill development = 10 hours

Attendance at all scheduled sessions in this unit is compulsory and absences could result in a fail. All absences need to be supported by appropriate documentation (e.g. medical certificate).
Successful engagement with all learning activities in this accredited Initial Teacher Education course is necessary to demonstrate that you have met the Graduate career stage of the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers (AITSL, 2011).
It is recognised that sometimes absence is unavoidable. If you are absent for more than two sessions, however, your engagement with the unit could be considered unsatisfactory.
Required IT skills

Work placement, internships or practicums
The knowledge and skills developed in this unit can be directly applied in your professional experience placements.
Foundation of Unit
Theoretical foundation: The theoretical foundation of this unit is based in a socio-cultural approach to health and PE. The learning and assessment items develop practical skills and understanding in the students and provide opportunities for them to apply their health and PE knowledge.
Practice and research led education: The unit convener and tutor teaches and researches in the area of health and physical education. The learning and assessment items help students to develop best practice in health and PE and provide opportunities for them to apply these skills to educational contexts.
