SELT Survey Results

This course aims to study Gallipoli as an event that transformed the commemorative landscape and practices not only in Australia, but also in Turkey. We will acknowledge the diversity of the responses to and changing understandings of Gallipoli, from the early days of the campaign till today, with a particular focus on the Turkish experiences. The students will gain familiarity and appreciation of various historiographical trends and social and cultural changes that inform contemporary debates about Gallipoli and war commemoration in general. The course is designed to build awareness of the transnational aspects of the remembrance of the campaign, drawing on mainly Turkish and Australian perspectives. There is both an emphasis on theoretical discussions about commemorative phenomena and a hands-on experience of attending, observing and creating commemorative activities through authentic assessments.

Learning Outcomes

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

  1. reflect on commemorative places and practices about Gallipoli, drawing on personal experiences, observation and research;
  2. identify and interpret resources that pertain to the Gallipoli campaign, relating them to broader historical contexts;
  3. appraise specific examples of commemorations in relation to cultural, social and political forces that shape the remembrance of the campaign;
  4. apply theoretical and practical knowledge about public commemorations while designing or critically assessing original initiatives; and
  5. examine and compare different historiographical traditions and trends.

Staff Feedback

Students will be given feedback in the following forms in this course:

  • written comments on the reflective piece and the group project proposal
  • verbal comments on the poster presenation
  • feedback to whole class or groups as required

Student Feedback

ANU is committed to the demonstration of educational excellence and regularly seeks feedback from students. Students are encouraged to offer feedback directly to their Course Convener or through their College and Course representatives (if applicable). The feedback given in these surveys is anonymous and provides the Colleges, University Education Committee and Academic Board with opportunities to recognise excellent teaching, and opportunities for improvement. The Surveys and Evaluation website provides more information on student surveys at ANU and reports on the feedback provided on ANU courses.

The submission method is detailed below.

The Academic Misconduct Rule is in place to promote academic integrity and manage academic misconduct. Very minor breaches of the academic integrity principle may result in a reduction of marks of up to 10% of the total marks available for the assessment. The ANU offers a number of online and in person services to assist students with their assignments, examinations, and other learning activities. Visit the Academic Skills website for more information about academic integrity, your responsibilities and for assistance with your assignments, writing skills and study.
