|Teaching start date
There is no text book as such for this unit. Reading and viewing materials are available on the unit Canvas site. None of these readings are very long. You're required to read them all as part of preparation for each class. That way we can devote classes to the practical application of the reading/viewing content.
You're also strongly encouraged to read the UC Book of the Year, Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep by Philip K. Dick as it will be referenced in classes and may offer potential ideas/themes for the Variety Show assessment task.
Submission of assessment items
Special assessment requirements
You must participate in, complete and achieve at least a Pass grade in all three assessment tasks to gain an overall pass grade in the unit.
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.
None other than described elsewhere.
Required IT skills
You will need to be familar with how to work within Canvas, and to create a Mahara eportfolio. Guidance will be provided.
Students will need to use their own portable instruments and /or other performance materials as required, and to source their own scripts, sheet music, costumes if appropriate, etc. for individual or small group performance acts.
