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 participate in lectures and complete tutorial exercises to achieve the learning outcomes set out above. You are expected to complete weekly readings and you are also expected to watch the weekly lectures. Tutorials are asynchronous, and you are expected to complete a set of tutorial exercises in your own time (these are not graded). These will be made available on a page within the unit UCLearn (Canvas) site each week. You are also strongly encouraged to discuss these activities with your peers in the UCLearn (Canvas) forum and elsewhere. Completing these exercises will strongly assist with your overall comprehension of the course content and concepts.
Students are expected to access UCLearn (Canvas) regularly (at least several times each week) for readings and any updates to unit activities or resources.
