Marketing Plan and Jain Text
Swinburne has a range of policies and procedures that govern how students are expected to conduct themselves throughout the course of their relationship with the University. These include policies on expected standards of behaviour and conduct which cover interaction with fellow students, staff and the wider University community, in addition to following the health and safety requirements in the course of their studies and whilst using University facilities. All students are expected to familiarise themselves with University regulations, policies and procedures and have an obligation to abide by the expected guidelines.
Any student found to be in breach may be subject to relevant disciplinary processes. Some examples of relevant expected behaviours are: • Not engaging in student misconduct • Ensuring compliance with the University’s Anti-Discrimination, Bullying and Violence and Sexual Harassment requirements • Complying with all Swinburne occupational health and safety requirements, including following emergency and evacuation procedures and following instructions given by staff/wardens or emergency response. In teaching areas, it is expected that students conduct themselves in a manner that is professional and not disruptive to others.
In all Swinburne laboratories, there are specific safety procedures which must be followed, such as wearing appropriate footwear and safety equipment, not acting in a manner which is dangerous or disruptive (e. g. playing computer games), and not bringing in food or drink. Blackboard You should regularly access the Swinburne Course Management System (Blackboard) available via http://ilearn. swin. edu. au. Blackboard is regularly updated with important Unit information and communications. Communication All communication will be via your Swinburne email address.
If you access your email through a provider other than Swinburne, then it is your responsibility to ensure that your Swinburne email is redirected to your private email address. Plagiarism Plagiarism is the action or practice of taking and submitting or presenting the thoughts, writings or other work of someone else as though it is your own work. Plagiarism includes any of the following, without full and appropriate acknowledgment to the original source(s): • The use of the whole or part of a computer program written by another person; • the use, in essays or other assessable work, of the whole or part of a written work from any source including but not limited to a book, journal, newspaper article, set of lecture notes, current or past student’s work, any other person’s work, a website or database; • The paraphrasing of another’s work; • The use of musical composition, audio, visual, graphic and photographic models, • The use of realia that is objects, artefacts, costumes, models and the like. Plagiarism also includes the preparation or production and submission or presentation of assignments or other work in conjunction with another person or other people when that work should be your own independent work.
This remains plagiarism whether or not it is with the knowledge or consent of the other person or people. It should be noted that Swinburne encourages its students to talk to staff, fellow students and other people who may be able to Page 7 of 8 contribute to a student’s academic work but that where independent assignment is required, submitted or presented work must be the student’s own. Enabling plagiarism contributes to plagiarism and therefore will be treated as a form of plagiarism by the University.
Enabling plagiarism means allowing or otherwise assisting another student to copy or otherwise plagiarise work by, for example, allowing access to a draft or completed assignment or other work. Swinburne University uses plagiarism detection software (such as Turnitin) for assignments submitted electronically via Blackboard. Your Convenor will provide further details. The penalties for plagiarism can be severe ranging from a zero grade for an assessment task through to expulsion from the unit and in the extreme, exclusion from Swinburne.
Consequently you need to avoid plagiarism by providing a reference whenever you include information from other sources in your work. Student support You should talk to your Unit Convenor or Student Services, for information on academic support services available for Swinburne students. Special consideration If your studies have been adversely affected due to serious and unavoidable circumstances outside of your control (e. g. severe illness or unavoidable obligation) you may be able to apply for special consideration (SPC).
Applications for Special Consideration will be submitted via the SPC online tool normally no later than 5. 00pm on the third working day after the submission/sitting date for the relevant assessment component. Special needs Sometimes students with a disability, a mental health or medical condition or significant carer responsibilities require reasonable adjustments to enable full access to and participation in education. Your special needs can be addressed by Swinburne’s Disability Services, who can negotiate and distribute an ‘Education Access Plan’ that outlines recommendations for university teaching and examination staff.
You must notify the University Disability Liaison Officer of your disability or condition within one week after the commencement of a unit of study to allow the University to make reasonable adjustments. Review of marks An independent marker reviews all fail grades for major assessment tasks. In addition, a review of assessment is undertaken if your final result is a marginal fail (45-49) or within 2 marks of a grade threshold. If you are not satisfied with the result of an assessment you can ask the Unit Convenor to review the result. Your request must be made in writing within 10 working days of receiving the result.
The Unit Convenor will review your result against the marking guide to determine if your result is appropriate. If you are dissatisfied with the outcomes of the review you can lodge a formal complaint. Feedback, complaints and suggestions In the first instance you may discuss any issues with your Unit Convenor. If you are dissatisfied with the outcome of the discussions with the Unit Convenor or would prefer not to deal with your Unit Convenor, then you can complete a feedback form. Advocacy You are advised to seek advice from the staff at the Swinburne Student Amenities Association (SSAA) if you require assistance with any academic issues.
