Special assessment requirements
It is essential that the students come prepared for workshops by listening to the pre-recorded lectures and by reading designated chapters and online content. Please note that Assignment #1 will be workshopped. Assignment #2 will also be further explained during the workshops. To be able to complete the assignments for this unit, it is crucial that students attend the workshops and listen to the pre-recorded lectures.
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 have a responsibility to:
• read/watch all content provided on the UCLearn site designed for this unit.
• attend all formal class sessions.
• regularly check and read announcements sent by the unit convener on the Canvas (UCLearn) site.
• regularly check their UC emails.
• read, understand and respect the rules concerning plagiarism.
• communicate to the unit convener through their UC email account and not via a personal email account.
• avoid all acts which could be considered plagiarism.
• familiarise themselves with the conventions of referencing in their discipline.
• provide accurate information about their address and contact details, and to notify Student Administration of changes as soon as they occur; and
• ensure they are correctly enrolled in each unit and that the units are correct for their course of study.
***All students are expected to attend each of the workshops. All students are expected to listen to the pre-recorded lectures and prepare the required readings before the workshops and to actively participate in discussions and activities during the workshops.
