Submission of assessment items
Extensions & Late submissions
Submission of assessment items
All assessment items should be submitted online via the unit Moodle site where possible.
If you experience any problems please submit via email with a clear message outlining what the assessment item is and your name and student number
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.
Late Submission of Assessment
Please see policy on your moodle site
It is expected that all students will actively engage in all presentations and workshops
All students must complete a field based internship with an approved sport organisation or club where they will observe, assist or work with industry professionals
Required IT skills
Students will be responsible for any costs incurred during their internship and for the production of the poster/ video.
Work placement, internships or practicums
All students are required to undergo a Working with Vulnerable People (WWVP) background check to undertake a placement for this unit. Students are responsible for arranging their own checks through the ACT Office of Regulatory Services.
Note that the Working with Vulnerable People (Background Checking) Act only applies to the ACT. For students undertaking placements in other states or territories, it may be that a Police Check or a Working with Children Check is required
This unit involves professional practicum / internships and therefore, additional student responsibilities are required in addition to those described in this section. Work-place learning requires strict adherence to professional practice principles and ethics. Client/patient confidentiality must always be maintained (see policy ****), including for assessment items such as reports or essays. The professional nature of this unit also requires 100% participation at all learning activities (lectures, practicals etc. if scheduled – see section 3) for the successful completion of this unit (also see section 6c). If attendance requirements cannot be satisfied (e.g. timetable clash), it is recommended that you meet with your Course Convener to schedule this unit for a future semester.
