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.
A four-hour seminar and tutorial is provided each week and part of the assessment will be based on attendance.
This unit is delivered face to face through a seminar each Wednesday and attendance is an assessment requirement.
Required IT skills
The ability to search the internet, word processing, and basic map reading and GIS knowledge would be an advantage. Writing and skills related to the expression of geographic information and the interpretation of spatial information will be of assistance.
