Submission of assessment items
Special assessment requirements
All assessable items must be submitted or performed. Failure to do so will result in an NC (Fail) grade being awarded for the unit.
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.

Use of Text-Matching Software

The software matches submitted text in student assignments against material from various sources: the internet, published books and journals, and previously submitted student texts.
Attendance at seminars and participation online is expected. Discussion-based learning is key to the development of the learning outcomes associated with this unit.
