This unit is a self-paced unit, where most of the content is available to the students from the beginning and the student goes through the content when convenient. Please review the assessment deadlines carefully to make sure that you give yourself sufficient time to review the material provided as each assessment item must be attempted to be eligible to pass the assessment.
The self-paced nature of this online unit enables each student to follow their own optimal pace to go through the content of the unit as the teaching team understands the individual demands and time-frames students have outside their academic studies. The flexibility this unit offers should ensure everyone can successfully complete the unit following their own schedule. There would be some suggested readings through the unit but students are mostly encourage to search through the relevant literature on the topics presented to them in the unit to further develop their individual professional interests.

Submission of assessment items
Extensions & Late submissions
All assessment must be attempted to be eligible to pass the Unit.
Word documents, not PDFs, must be submitted, except for Assessment 3 which is on the Discussion Forum.
All assessment items will be submitted via the Canvas site following the specific instructions about each specific assignment on Canvas.
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.
Required IT skills
Work placement, internships or practicums
Assessment must be completed in Word format. PDFs will not be marked.
