Learning, teaching and support strategies
All of your subject materials are available on the Interact site under the Topics link in the left hand
side menu. It has been specifically written to guide you. I suggest that for each topic you read the
learning objectives carefully, read the relevant sections, attend weekly classes, read lecture slide, and
have a quick skim of the sections in the text book. Once you have got a feel for what the topic is
about try, make a good set of notes under each of the topic, complete the exercises in that topic. You
can do this by reading the reference materials, attending weekly classes and consulting the text again
in a more considered way. These exercises have been designed to give you a focus in the topic, so it
really helps to prepare solution of them.

In this subject there are also lots of opportunities for you to engage with me, with your peers (i.e.
class mates) and with the subject. I will be holding weekly face to face classes in each teaching week
throughout the session where we can discuss content issues and assessment items, details of times and
dates will be posted on the Interact site.

I will use the following strategies to support you:
• Interaction facilitated through your CSU Interact2 subject site
• Provision of resources - check the Interact2 subject site
• Regular weekly update
• Detailed feedback concerning assessments
• Face to face classes
• Consultation via email and telephone, if required.

You should check the Interact2 site at least weekly for postings, announcements, and other resources that
will assist your studies or additional information and resources vital to your success in the subject.

It is helpful to have a small task to complete early in the session so that you have a focus in the
subject from the very first day. If you don’t attempt the assessment, I may contact you by phone or
email to have a chat about study and if there are any issue that I can help with.

4. If you apply for an extension, you may be asked to email your lecturer on what you
have done so far on the assignment.

5. You must be able to provide documentary evidence (such as a certificate from a doctor or
counsellor) justifying the need for an extension as soon as practicable - but please note that if
the circumstances giving rise to the request for an extension arise on a day when you cannot
get documentary evidence, you must still apply for the extension before the due date and
submit the documentary evidence afterwards.

6. Given the tight deadlines involved in returning assignments to students and putting feedback
on Interact, the maximum extension granted generally will be seven (7) days from the
due date.

7. Assignments received more than 10 days after the due date or extension date will not be
marked unless the staff member decides otherwise. Items received late will be penalised at
10% of the mark available for the assessment item per day it is late (see below).

8. Note that for purposes of measuring lateness, the 'day' begins just after 00.00 hrs AEST - so
an assignment received after midnight of the due date will be penalised 10% for lateness.
This rule will be applied to all students uniformly.

Penalties for Late Submission
The penalty for late submission of an assessment task (without obtaining the Subject
Coordinator's approval for an extension) will be:

10% deduction per day, including weekends, of the maximum marks allocated for the assessment
task, i.e. 1 day late 10% deduction, or 2 days late 20% deduction.

An example of the calculation would be:

Maximum marks allocated = 20
Penalty for one day late = 2 marks (so, a score of 18/20 becomes 16/20 and a score of 12/20
becomes 10/20).

If an assignment is due on a Friday but is not submitted until the following Tuesday, then the penalty
will be four days (40% deduction or 8 marks in the example above).

Submissions more than 10 days late will be acknowledged as received but will not be marked.

Under normal circumstances resubmission of assessment items will not be accepted for any of
the assessments required in this subject.

Online Submission
Assignments should be submitted through TurnItIn. Please meet with your respective lecturer to enroll
in the Turnitin (If you do not receive any email from Turnitin).

Assessments such as Blogs, Quizzes and Journals are required to submit in the Interact2.

TurnItIn does not accept Excel files and PDF files.
