Attendance Students are expected to view all workshops for MMCC8055. All workshops will be delivered live on campus at 10 Hadenfeld Ave, Dance Studio Room 184 and simultaneously delivered via zoom online and recorded for access following the class. Workshops are not optional: they deliver important content through practical application and are a central component of meeting the learning outcomes in this unit. Workshops provide an environment where students can discuss ideas and learn from each other, building important networks and group work skills. In workshops, you will also have the opportunity to ask for assistance from the convenor and receive informal feedback on work in progress. Students who do not attend workshops or access the recording will miss out on important unit content and learning activities.
Group Exercises Students in this unit must be willing to work within a group and to assume responsibility for the group's process. Students are required to wear comfortable clothes and shoes for practical exercises and tutorials.
Independent Work Students are expected to work independently outside of scheduled Class times when they are working on all assessments. MMCC8055 students will need to do their own reading of relevant texts outside class time.
Assessment standards Assessment standards by which the tasks are evaluated are described in the assessment rubrics. Detailed information will be provided in class and available from iLearn.
Referencing Style Preferred Style for this Unit is APA. Other styles such as Harvard may be used as long as all necessary information is provided and a consistent approach is taken.
Electronic Submissions Assessments for this unit are to be submitted online via the 'Turnitin' software that can be accessed through the MMCC8055 iLearn website. Detailed information will be provided in class and available from iLearn.
Feedback Feedback will be given to students via the following ways:
Whole class: Consolidated feedback on whole of class assignment performance, summarising key strengths and weaknesses from the unit convenor in class discussions and unit activities. Through the ‘announcement’ function in iLearn, if there are points of relevance to the whole class.
Individual: The ongoing opportunity to discuss assignment progress with the convenor via email or face to face student consultation. This provides a mechanism to provide feedback on progress made, prior to submission.
Formal: Comments (text/voice) will be attached to assignments marked in Turnitin/GradeMark. Marks are made available through the Gradebook function in iLearn.
Late penalty statement Unless a Disruption to Studies request has been submitted and approved, (a) a penalty for lateness will apply – 10 marks out of 100 credit will be deducted per day for assignments submitted after the due date – and (b) no assignment will be accepted seven days (incl. weekends) after the original submission deadline. No late submissions will be accepted for timed assessments – e.g. quizzes, online tests, etc.
- Unless you have applied for special consideration and had your application approved, for each day your assignment is late, 10 marks will be deducted. For example, if you submit your assignment 7 days late, 70 marks will be deducted, which means you will fail that assignment.
- If your assignment is more than 7 days late (including weekends), you will get 0 for your assignment.
These are serious penalties that will substantially alter your final grade and even determine whether you pass or fail this unit. Please make every effort to submit your assignment by the due date. If you find you cannot submit your assignment on time, please apply for Special Consideration through AskMQ. Make sure you read Macquarie University's policy regarding Special Consideration requests before you apply:
