The ANU uses Turnitin to enhance student citation and referencing techniques, and to assess assignment submissions as a component of the University's approach to managing Academic Integrity. While the use of Turnitin is not mandatory, the ANU highly recommends Turnitin is used by both teaching staff and students. For additional information regarding Turnitin please visit the ANU Online website.
The course will run in two stages. The first stage will run on-line during weeks 3 through 7 and will require students to study the foundations of model-driven software development [25-50 hours].
The second stage will run for 7 days on 11 and 12 September, and from 15 to 19 September (during the mid-semester break). Students will be required to attend classes and practical workshops from 0900 to 1230 and from 1330 to 1630 on each of these days [approx.45 hours].
Each night during this period, students will be required to work on assessment tasks [10-20 hours].
