Attendance at scheduled classes and contribution over the semester is expected. Presentation and discussion of your work in progress is essential for the development of your design skills in meeting the learning outcomes of the subject and for your architectural education. Participation in studio sessions and reviews provides important opportunities for feedback and demonstrates that the submitted work is your own.
In order to receive a grade of Pass or better, students must bring their work in progress to studio sessions, reviews and juries as detailed in the unit outline. Assessment items that have not been presented for review during the semester as required may not be submitted for final assessment.
Please advise the Unit Convener if you are unable to attend a particular class or studio.
Required IT skills
Students are expected to have sufficient IT skills to participate in weekly studios, to source reference material, and to prepare design and final presentation drawings, the base model, and process and final presentation physical models. Refer project focus in 3a above and in the unit project brief.
Materials and equipment needed to prepare progress and presentation drawings, physical models and other required submission materials. Refer project focus in 3a above and in the unit project brief.
Work placement, internships or practicums
Not relevant to this Unit
Additional information, including assignment and submission requirements will be provided in separate handouts. Reading and complying with this information and instruction is a requirement for students enrolled in this unit.
Announcements made during lectures, or posted on the LearnOnline (Canvas) site, will be deemed to have been made to the whole group. Students are responsible for regularly checking their UC student email for individual emails that the Unit Convener may decide to send.
Consultation with Staff
Contact with staff should generally be within the allocated class times. Consultation outside of these hours shall be by prior appointment, and in addition to, not in lieu of, the scheduled class time. Students who fail to attend classes, and who do not have a medical or counsellor's certificate or other genuine reason for missing classes, should not expect additional tutorial or consultation time.
Please note: staff are not able to return calls to long distance or mobile telephone numbers after normal hours or on weekends or holidays. Emails are normally not checked or answered at nights, on weekends or on public holidays.
Due to the requirements of professional accreditation samples of student work may be retained and stored at the School for periods of up to three years. Where possible, each student should make a copy of any assignment (prior to submission) as that work may be retained and inaccessible thereafter.
Late Collection of Assignments
University of Canberra staff and sessional studio tutors are not responsible for submission materials. Architecture students are expected to take responsibility for their work. In the context of the design studios, this is considered to include both submitting the work on time, and collecting it following assessment. Collection times will be advised for submissions where appropriate. Where a project/assignment is not collected by that time, the project may be subject to a 5% grade penalty. The project may be discarded without further notice. This penalty will not apply when prior arrangements have been made with the Unit Convener, your Studio Tutor, or when the work is being retained, such as for accreditation.
Retention of Student Work for Accreditation
Representative samples of student work will be held for program accreditation purposes.
