This is achieved through the design of high-quality curriculum, with engaging experiential learning experiences and assessment aimed at preparing global citizens and future leaders that value life-long learning.

Submission of assessment items
Extensions & Late submissions
Grounds for applying for an extension
The onus rests on students to comply with timelines for completing and submitting assessments, and this is part of the good management and performance skills we are seeking to develop in students through the educational process. Lecturers also have a responsibility to ensure equity and fairness to the majority of students who submit their assessments on time.
For these reasons, you need to establish genuine circumstances for an extension to be granted. You will need to supply documentary evidence to establish the genuine nature of your circumstances.
Process for applying for an extension:
Students are advised to liaise directly with their Unit Convenor for requests for extension. Requests for extension should be emailed to the Unit Convenor or approved delegate, although there may be circumstances where Inclusion & Welfare will liaise on behalf of the student.
Requests for extensions should be on the attached Assignment Extension Application form and submitted at least 5 days prior to the submission date.
The Unit Convenor, or approved delegate, will inform the student of the outcome of their request as per Faculty procedures. Where the Unit Convenor, or approved delegate, does not approve the assignment extension request, the student may seek consultation with Inclusion & Welfare. If considered appropriate, Inclusion & Welfare will liaise with the relevant Academic staff member, following consultation with the student.

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.
Each week there will be a set of slides for your to read and consider with related self directed work attached. There will also be a discussion thread started most weeks. You will find the learning material in modules. You will need to read and keep up with your Canvas interaction. The general guideline is that for a three (3) credit point unit the amount of study should be one hundred and fifty (150) hours for reading, listening, and self directed learning. I will send a summary announcement each week. I will post announcments on Canvas as issues arise during the semester. It is important to check your studeent email and the Canvas site at least weekly.
Inclusion and engagement
Discussions will be facilitated via Canvas using the Discussion forum and the Virtual Classroom as required. Students are invited to actively particpate in online discussions.
