PoliciesANU 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 RequirementsThe 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 Students may choose not to submit assessment items through Turnitin. In this instance you will be required to submit, alongside the assessment item itself, hard copies of all references included in the assessment item.
Moderation of AssessmentMarks 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.
This course will be delivered via a hybrid model.
- Lectures will be pre-recorded
- Tutorials will be carried out both face-to-face on-campus and online synchronously - live streamed - these will not be recorded..
Attendance in one of the available formats in highly recommended, especially with the move to online delivery.
This subject is designed to be best completed with high engagement, where the most value for your educational dollar comes from. Attendance at all teaching events, while not compulsory, is expected in line with “Code of Practice for Teaching and Learning”, clause 2 paragraph (h).
Attend all scheduled activities for the courses in which they are enrolled, or make equitable and practicable alternative arrangements in consultation with teachers, which may include listening to lecture recordings or reading notes and/or slides.
Marketing is based on the principle of co-creation, which requires active engagement from the consumer to create the experience of the value offering. Within the course of the semester, you are invited to participate in the weekly learning events online, and if you are unable to attend these events.
Attendance is the first step, however, and you are required to actively prepare for, and participate in classes. Active participation is both contribution in the group environment through proactive listening, support of fellow students, and active followership, and proactive leadership, responding to challenges and questions, and sharing your insights with the cohort. As classes will have discussions, classes require audiences, and audiences create the conducive and supportive learning environment that ANU prides itself on offering to you as part of your experience.
There is a final examination for this course held during the end of semester examination period.
Proctorio - Quiz 1 and the final exam will be administered using Proctorio which will require you to be prepared - please see here for instructions - link
