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.
Students are expected to undertake the learning activities placed on UCLearn (Canvas) and to either participate in the Canberra site visits or orgaise their own site visits to achieve the learning outcomes set out above.
Required IT skills
All assignments are to be typed as a Word document or similar and illustrations should be incorporated in the file. Assignments are to be uploaded to UC Learn (Canvas) teaching site, preferably in PDF format. Students are also expected to develop power-point presentations, conduct library and on-line searches and to use the unit UC Learn (Canvas) teaching site.
For online students who elect to participate in the Canberr based site visits there will be some minor costs ($7 x3 entry fee) associated with the 3 site visits, including travel to the sites (car pooling).
Work placement, internships or practicums
Experiential learning through site-based field work.
