Submission of assessment items
Extensions & Late submissions
Further instructions to be given in class and via 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.
Students are expected to maintain at least 80% attendance. There is a significant link between a student's attendance/participation, and the quality of their learning outcomes demonstrated by the submitted assessable project components.
Please advise the Unit Convener (by email) in advance if you are unable to attend a particular class or studio.
Required IT skills
Access to a personal laptop would benefit the students during lectures and tutorials. In particular, software requirements are Word, and Adobe Creative Suite with a minimum of Illustrator, In-design and Photoshop available. Computer Labs will be scheduled out of class time for those students who don't have access to a personal computer.
Please refer to section 4b. Materials & Equipment.
