SELT Survey Results

This course builds on and further develops a range of skills, competencies and understanding to enable the student to resolve, communicate and produce original creative works.

The course is based on an Individual Work Proposal (IWP) and the shaping of this and the creative works is supported though group sessions across several disciplines as well as tutorials, demonstrations and discussions within each Workshop.

In addition to developing a cohesive body of work in a media related to the relevant Workshop, students will develop skills in writing and speaking about their work, and in presenting work in a professional setting. Students will learn how to research and articulate the context of their work, including theoretical, historical and critical frameworks.

Work health and safety (WHS) instruction is an integral part of this course and will be handled within each Workshop.

This course is delivered by the following School of Art & Design disciplines: Ceramics, Furniture, Glass, Jewellery and Object, and Textiles.

Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:

  1. demonstrate skill in planning and executing an independent project and create a body of work that is suitable for exhibition;
  2. develop, research and evaluate concepts and processes through creative, critical and reflective thinking;
  3. articulate and link the concepts and techniques underpinning the project; and
  4. demonstrate a comprehensive awareness of related historical, critical and theoretical contexts of the project.

Additional Course Costs

Student contribution amounts under the Higher Education Support Act 2003 (HESA) and tuition fees support the course described in the Course Outline/Class Summary and include tuition, teaching materials and student access to the workshops for the stated course hours.


This Workshop Fee is for additional access to the workshop and use of equipment, tooling and consumable items during extra hours. It is not essential to course completion. Payment of the Workshop Fee is optional, but if a student chooses not to pay it, access to the workshops outside of stated course hours is not allowed.


Each workshop sources appropriate specialist materials, which are made available to students to facilitate their working effectively, efficiently and safely within our programs. The School of Art & Design is able to supply materials that don’t compromise ANU obligations under the Work Health and Safety Act 2011 (WHS), and that have been assessed as suitable for each course. 

The Material Fee is payable for the School of Art & Design to supply materials that become your physical property. You can choose to pay the Materials Fee and have these materials supplied to you through the School of Art & Design, allowing you to take advantage of the GST-free bulk purchasing power of the ANU. These materials are also WHS compliant.

Students have the choice of acquiring these materials from a supplier other than the School of Art & Design, however students should note that many materials may not be WHS compliant (and therefore are not approved for use in the workshops), or are not available for individuals to purchase because they must be supplied and stored in a particular way in order to meet WHS regulations.

Examination Material or equipment

For scheduled assessments, reviews and critiques, students will present their required work: completed works, works in progress, support material , tests, folios and relevant contextual research. All materials need to be set up ahead of assessment sessions, and presented to staff over the course of scheduled assessment. All assessments requirements will be discussed during class and posted to Wattle, and teaching staff is available for any question related to the assessment process.

ANU has educational policies, procedures and guidelines, which are designed to ensure that staff and students are aware of the University’s academic standards, and implement them. Students are expected to have read the Academic Misconduct Rule before the commencement of their course. Other key policies and guidelines include:

Assessment Requirements

The ANU is using 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. For additional information regarding Turnitin please visit the ANU Online website. In rare cases where online submission using Turnitin software is not technically possible; or where not using Turnitin software has been justified by the Course Convener and approved by the Associate Dean (Education) on the basis of the teaching model being employed; students shall submit assessment online via ‘Wattle’ outside of Turnitin, or failing that in hard copy, or through a combination of submission methods as approved by the Associate Dean (Education). The submission method is detailed below.

Moderation of Assessment

Marks that are allocated during Semester are to be considered provisional until formalised by the College examiners meeting at the end of each Semester. If appropriate, some moderation of marks might be applied prior to final results being released.


Consistent participation is expected for the successful completion of this course. The course includes many peer-to-peer and face-to-face learning exercises, including seminars, critiques, individual consultations and tutorials designed for student formative feedback and successful completion of the course.


For scheduled assessments, reviews and critiques, students will present their work to date, completed works, support material and tests, folios, relevant contextual research. All materials will be set up ahead of assessment sessions, which staff will review over the course of scheduled assessment window. All assessments requirements will be discussed during class, and teaching staff are available for any question related to the assessment process.

Academic Integrity

Academic integrity is a core part of our culture as a community of scholars. At its heart, academic integrity is about behaving ethically. This means that all members of the community commit to honest and responsible scholarly practice and to upholding these values with respect and fairness. The Australian National University commits to embedding the values of academic integrity in our teaching and learning. We ensure that all members of our community understand how to engage in academic work in ways that are consistent with, and actively support academic integrity. The ANU expects staff and students to uphold high standards of academic integrity and act ethically and honestly, to ensure the quality and value of the qualification that you will graduate with. The University has policies and procedures in place to promote academic integrity and manage academic misconduct. Visit the following Academic honesty & plagiarism website for more information about academic integrity and what the ANU considers academic misconduct. The ANU offers a number of services to assist students with their assignments, examinations, and other learning activities. The Academic Skills and Learning Centre offers a number of workshops and seminars that you may find useful for your studies.

Online Submission

You will be required to electronically sign a declaration as part of the submission of your assignment. Please keep a copy of the assignment for your records. Unless an exemption has been approved by the Associate Dean (Education) submission must be through Turnitin.

Hardcopy Submission

For some forms of assessment (hand written assignments, art works, laboratory notes, etc.) hard copy submission is appropriate when approved by the Associate Dean (Education). Hard copy submissions must utilise the Assignment Cover Sheet. Please keep a copy of tasks completed for your records.

Late Submission

Individual assessment tasks may or may not allow for late submission. Policy regarding late submission is detailed below:

  • Late submission not permitted. If submission of assessment tasks without an extension after the due date is not permitted, a mark of 0 will be awarded.
  • Late submission permitted. Late submission of assessment tasks without an extension are penalised at the rate of 5% of the possible marks available per working day or part thereof. Late submission of assessment tasks is not accepted after 10 working days after the due date, or on or after the date specified in the course outline for the return of the assessment item. Late submission is not accepted for take-home examinations.

Referencing Requirements

Accepted academic practice for referencing sources that you use in presentations can be found via the links on the Wattle site, under the file named “ANU and College Policies, Program Information, Student Support Services and Assessment”. Alternatively, you can seek help through the Students Learning Development website.

Extensions and Penalties

Extensions and late submission of assessment pieces are covered by the Student Assessment (Coursework) Policy and Procedure. The Course Convener may grant extensions for assessment pieces that are not examinations or take-home examinations. If you need an extension, you must request an extension in writing on or before the due date. If you have documented and appropriate medical evidence that demonstrates you were not able to request an extension on or before the due date, you may be able to request it after the due date.
