Submission of assessment items
Use of text matching software
Please note that this unit uses assessment for learning, that is, assessments that are designed to drive and generate learning. This is different to some other contexts and settings.
The unit also places a heavy emphasis on personalised formative feedback generated through class discussions and online forum activities - both from teachers and from peers - and so failing to take these opportunities when offered or - for example - seeking to learn by only listening to other people's conversations, and not participating, is not recommended.
The unit does not seek to deliver a simple 'product' to be passively consumed and instead seeks to create the conditions for optimal (i.e., lifelong, empowering) learning: compatible learning that is expected in the university setting.
It is possible to complete this unit without physically attending campus, but you must keep up to date with the online tasks, assessments, and activities.
Required IT skills
It is expected that students will possess UC IT entry skills, allowing them to access the unit's Campus/UC_Learn site.
It is not compulsory to purchase a textbook or particular software
Work placement, internships or practicums
No placements are required/offered within this unit. Please note that the 'tender' assessment taks does have a significant focus on industry engagement, but that the resources and content for this have been prepared for you - it is a 'simulation' of a real world activity.
The unit will adopt APA referencing style, as per the APA 7th Edition Manual.
Announcements made on Canvas and in lectures are deemed to be made to the whole group and students should always check Canvas before contacting teaching staff with queries.
Students are expected to have (or seek out) core knowledge of research methods and basic background to psychology that will support learning in this unit.
