All three assignments must be completed and achieve a pass grade. All assignments are to be completed by individual students and may not have been submitted for credit in any other course or qualification.
As this course is based on a collaborative learning and teaching model prepared participation by the student will be essential to meet the requirements of this course.
Formal and informal evaluation will take place in accordance with the relevant Course Evaluation Policy, to provide feedback to teaching staff about the relevance and validity of what has been learned as well as the quality of course delivery.
All course assessment is moderated within courses, and selected course assessment is moderated externally (by nominated people outside the University). A sample of your work may be used as part of the eternal moderation process and all identifying details will be removed.
All students refer to the Assessment Guidelines for Students.
Late work will be accepted up to one week after the due date but will incur a grade penalty. Lecturers reserve the right not to mark late work, and no work will be accepted after the assignments have been returned to students.
Access to web–based discussions will be a required part of this course and all students are required to contribute on a weekly basis. Teleconference of discussions between FLO and oncampus students will be held over the semester and all students are required to participate.
Under exceptional circumstances (e.g. illness, accident, bereavement or critical personal circumstances) individual students may be granted an extension of the due date for an assignment. There is, however, a limit to the length of time that an extension can be granted and this should be negotiated with the relevant lecturer in the first instance. Extensions will not normally be given for longer than one week from the due date, unless exceptional circumstances prevail. Extensions are not granted automatically to students.
Requests for extensions should be emailed to the lecturer at least two days prior to the due date for the assignment. Relevant evidence such as a medical certificate or a letter from a counsellor may be required in order for the lecturer to make a decision about whether or not to grant an extension. A copy of the lecturer’s email confirming the extension (if granted) and any supporting documentation must be attached to and submitted with the assignment.
Extensions will not normally be granted because of pressure of university study, eg. several pieces of work being due at about the same time. Students are encouraged to plan their work in a realistic manner and in advance so that they can meet their assessment deadlines.
Resubmissions of assignments will not be permitted.
FLO – Submission and return of assessment work will be via the Academic Services Team.
