Questions about unit and tutorials:
Always contact your tutor first. Your tutor can answer most questions concerning the unit in general and specific questions about the tutorials. If you experience difficulty in this unit, you should approach you tutor first. You can get in touch with your tutor before or after your tutorial, via email, or via the dialogue tool on iLearn. Contact details for tutors can be found at the top of this unit guide. Your tutor is your first point of contact for any of these questions. The unit convenor is to be contacted only when absolutely necessary, and is to be contacted during the specified contact hours or via email only.
Questions about lectures:
Please post content-related questions on the unit’s General Discussion Forum on iLearn so that other students can also join in and benefit from the discussion.
Questions about uploading assignments via iLearn:
You are required to submit one of the assessment tasks (Research Report) via iLearn, using the Turnitin submission tool. Please use the following step-to-step guides for instructions on how to access iLearn and how to submit a Turnitin assignment.
Requests for extensions, medical leave and/or disruption to studies:
Please note that it is the student’s responsibility to notify the University of a disruption to their studies. All requests for extensions, medical leave and/or disruption to studies should be made prior to the due date for the assignment, are to be made directly via the University’s online Ask MQ system (as outlined in the Disruption to Studies Policy).
Requests for tutorial changes:
Changes to tutorials need to be done online via eStudent only. After week 2, no further changes will be entertained unless supporting documentation about the reason for changing is provided and there is space in the tutorial you wish to enrol in. Please note that changes to tutorials cannot be made by the unit convenor or tutor.
Questions about workload:
The number of credit points a unit is worth is determined by how many hours the student is expected to spend each week at formal classes, writing essays, preparing for tutorials and in study related to the unit. For a half year unit 4 hours is allowed per credit point, so it would be expected that a student would spend 3 (credit points) by 4 hours = 12 hours per week on this unit.
