Submission of assessment items
Extensions & Late submissions
All written work must adhere to the following guidelines:
Font: Times New Roman 12pt
Line spacing: 1.5
Referencing style should be APA, but a consistent and correct style is necessary. More information on referencing can be found Here: http://canberra.libguides.com/referencing or contact the library or Academic Skills centre http://www.canberra.edu.au/studyskills for hands-on assistance.
All files should be uploaded to Moodle.
All files should be named with your student number and task selected: i.e. u899999task1.doc
No hardcopies are required.
Note that failure to adhere to these guidelines will result in penalties on your assessment items.
We do this not because we like seeing you squirm, but because most organisations (e.g. arts organisations, government funding organisations, literary journals and competitions) have a requirement to submit things in a particular way with the results for not doing so leading to your submission being disregarded out of hand, which you don't want to happen.Consider this practice in getting submissions to the standard that is required, rather than how you think it should look.
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.
This unit is taught in an INTENSIVE mode.
As we are travelling and working together mostly, participation will be unavoidable. Nonetheless, even in the spare time on this trip, it is expected that you will be working on your assessments and writing tasks.
Don't be afraid to try. Remember this is a significant opportunity for you to learn. Take advantage of the fact that you will have two writing mentors with you most days for the period of the trip.
Required IT skills
You must be able to have access to a computer, be able to manage using a word-processing program, and be conversant with Moodle and other on-line learning tools. If you are having difficulty with any of these, please see your tutor who will direct you to support.
Please refer to arrangements with Study Abroad for costings.

Review of unit results
Appropriate moderation procedures are used in the setting and marking of assessment tasks. When a mark or grade is awarded that places the student in jeopardy of a Fail in the whole unit, more than one member of academic staff will be involved in the decision. The university has a standard procedure to enable students who are dissatisfied with a Fail to seek a review. Students are encouraged, in the first instance, to attempt to resolve matters informally with the individual closest to the source of the grievance. This may mean writing to the staff member whose action or decision has led to the grievance or speaking to the staff member face-to-face. If the grievance is not resolved to the student's satisfaction then, as part of the informal resolution stage, the student should normally approach the relevant unit convener and/or discipline head in an effort to resolve the matter with the staff member concerned. Following that, further action is possible via a formal resolution process. For full details of the procedure and steps you can take please see http://www.canberra.edu.au/seasu/grievance-resolution
