Submission of assessment items
Extensions & Late submissions
Technology related issues cannot be used as a reason for late submission. It is the student's responsibility to ensure submissions are made in a timely manner in line with the due date for each assessment item.
Assessments will be moderated according to the moderation procedures followed by the Discipline of Occupational Therapy. Refer to Canvas for a copy of the moderation guidelines.
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.
It is essential that students actively participate in all seminars and exercises.
Such participation is required by students in order to meet the Australian Occupational Therapy Competency Standards (2018).
Therefore, except in the case of extenuating circumstances, 100% attendance at classes is expected.
It is also expected that if students are unable to meet these participation requirements they inform the Unit Convener as soon as practical, by telephone or email
Some lectures are recorded and provided for viewing prior to attending tutorials.
All tutorials are conducted face to face and attendance is expected to enable development of practical skills.
Appropriate social distancing and hygiene practices will be implemented for face to face sessions as required.
Required IT skills
Students will be required to compile and upload an audio recording as part of assessment task 1.
