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 course is a 100% online self-paced programme with set assessment deliverable dates as per the Canvas site. There are no on-campus lectures or tutorials. All lectures, videos, podcasts and reading resources are provided in the Canvas modules.
This unit is designed for independent online study. Students study the written and audio-visual materials individually at a time and location of their own choice with set individual assessment items submitted throughout the unit.
The assessment is split between a case study and a quiz that is developed progressively as you work through the learning materials, and the final report (Business Plan). The case study forms part of both the learning and the assessment of the unit and it is an important way of ensuring that the learning material is 'bedded down' in your mind.
This style of learning is designed specifically for students who are unable to attend campus-based classes due to other commitments. It may not be suitable for students who require a more interactive learning style and such students are encouraged to consider a campus-based unit instead.

This unit involves work-integrated learning: WIL Project.
The project is an activity that engages individuals or teams to respond to real-world problems or opportunities under the guidance of the faculty. No external placement or fieldwork is required.
The project is in two parts and is detailed on the canvas site. The first part is the progression through a case study of a restaurant that is undergoing a series of changes. Students are involved in various stages of management practices and decision-making.
The second part is the development of a Business Plan for a hypothetical Company.
