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.
Feedback and return of material
Apart from the grades/marks/comments given for the progressive assignments, feedback will be provided in the form of verbal comments and critique during classes and at juries.
In design education and practice the fundamental vehicle for receiving feedback is the verbal response or critique. Designers are expected to listen carefully and dispassionately to what is said and respond accordingly. It is therefore important that you develop the facility for recording what is said – this may include enlisting a fellow student to take notes on your behalf during your presentation.
Unless otherwise advised, assignments, together with marks and feedback, will be available for collection from the lecturer during class. All grades will be posted on the dedicated studio unit on Moodle.
Work will not be available for collection before the nominated return date. Students must retain a digital copy of their assessable work; this includes the electronic copy of physical artifacts (see point (i) above). Students should expect that tutors would write on or otherwise alter their work as a part of the assessment and feedback process.
Students are expected to have read the assigned weekly materials and attend the scheduled classes. Please advise the Unit Convener if you are unable to attend a particular class.
Required IT skills
As necessary to facilitate effective class presentation of your case study.
All reading materials are available at the UC library. However, to start building up a personal library, students are encouraged to purchase Gevork Hartoonian, The Architecture of
Spectacle, Ashgate, 2016.
Work placement, internships or practicums
Additional information, including assignment and submission requirements will be provided in separate handouts, if needed. Reading and complying with this information and instruction is a requirement for students enrolled in this unit. Information in the form of a project brief will also be available on the unit Moodle site. Compliance with the project brief forms part of the Assessment tasks of the unit outline
Announcements made during lectures, or sent to your University of Canberra student email address, will be deemed to have been made to the whole group. Students are responsible for regularly checking their UC student email.
Consultation with Staff
Contact with staff should generally be within the allocated class times. Consultation outside of these hours shall be by prior appointment, and in addition to, not in lieu of, the scheduled class time. Students who fail to attend classes, and who do not have a medical or Counsellor's certificate or other genuine reason for missing classes, should not expect additional tutorial or consultation time.
Please note: staff are not able to return calls to long distance or mobile telephone numbers after normal hours or on weekends or holidays. Emails are normally not checked or answered at nights, on weekends or on public holidays.
Due to the requirements of professional accreditation samples of student work will be retained and stored at the School for periods of up to three years. Where possible, each student should make a copy of any assignment (prior to submission) as that work may be retained and inaccessible thereafter.
