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.
Tutorial attendance is highly recommended for all students as the content covered is relevant to all assessments for the unit.
Required IT skills
Competency in PC based MS operating systems: PowerPoint, Word and Canvas will be assumed for this Unit
To calculate your unit fees see: How do I calculate my fees? (www.canberra.edu/student-services/fees/calculate)
The online UC Co-op Textbook Search (www.coop.com.au/bookshop/action/InstTextSelect?inst_name=university-canberra) is available for purchasing text books.
Work placement, internships or practicums
This unit requires strict adherence to professional practice principles and ethics. The professional nature of this unit also recommends attendance at all learning activities.
It is the student's responsibility to ensure that they are correctly enrolled in each subject and that the subjects are correct for their course of study. Students should confirm their subject enrolment details via MyUC before the end of Week 2.
Moderation of final results is practiced to ensure the maintenance and uniformity of consistent standards.
The Unit Convenor reserves the right to vary the tutorial schedule to take timely advantage of an advertising event, field trip opportunity or guest speaker. Notice of such variation will be made in the preceding week's Canvas announcement.
The standard practice of using an author-date system like Harvard is preferred.
If there is any doubt with regard to the requirements of any particular assignment or assessment procedure, the onus of clarification rests with the student who should contact the lecturer about the matter. Students have a responsibility to: read, understand and respect the rules concerning plagiarism; familiarise themselves with the conventions of referencing in their discipline; and avoid all acts, which could be considered plagiarism.
