Submission of assessment items
Use of text matching software
When a student does not submit an assessment task on or before the due date and time, their mark will be reduced by five percentage points per day from the total mark available (e.g. if an assessment was submitted three days late a mark of 70% would be reduced to 55%, or put another way, if a student was awarded 21 out of 30 and submitted three days late their mark would be reduced to 16.5 out of 30), up to a maximum of seven days at which time the assignment will no longer be accepted, unless there are approved extenuating circumstances.
Students are expected to attend all lectures and tutorials. Lectures are recorded but interactive sessions and activities that supplement learning are undertaken in the unrecorded tutorials. The unit is not available as a fully on-line unit because it is seen as essential that students attend to expand their learning and apply it. Students must attend and present in tutorial week 10.
Required IT skills
Word processing, internet searching and library skills are essential. The use of bibliographic management software such as Endnote or Refworks is strongly recommended. We expect you to use Moodle. You will need to use PowerPoint presentation software.
Work placement, internships or practicums
Announcements made on Moodle are deemed to be made to the whole group. Please check the Moodle site regularly for messages.
