|Honesty and academic integrity are required. Students are expected to behave as
mature, responsible adults in adherence with University policies.
|Work ethics and academic standards
|To earn highest marks, students must demonstrate that their knowledge, skills and
work habits in the subject area meet international University-level academic standards.
- Attend all classes. Attendance will be monitored, and missing many classes will
probably reduce your coursework grade.
- Be on time and prepared.
- Participate actively.
- Complete all assigned work.
|To submit coursework, send it by e-mail attachment to
email@example.com before the start of class on the due date. Submitting in advance
is safer and encouraged. Late coursework can be accepted only in rare circumstances
of unexpected personal hardship, in which case both a written explanation from the
student of why the assignment was late, and verifiable written evidence from an
outside source, would be required.
|Making backups of your coursework is your own responsibility, and will help you
avoid losing work due to computer or disk failure. It is recommended that you purchase
a box of 10 diskettes to store backup copies, and keep copies of each file on at
least two different disks. You may also consider purchasing CD-R or CD-RW discs
if CD-RW drives and CD burning software become available to students, since a CD
can hold 500 times as much as a floppy disk.
|Working with others is an essential skill for all university graduates and professionals.
You are encouraged to work with your classmates. Also, please do not hesitate to
contact the lecturer if you have any course-related questions, problems, suggestions
or further interests.
|Although computers make copying easier, copying without understanding will not help
you learn. Every student must create his or her own files. You may work with a friend
who can assist you verbally, but you should not copy your friend's work and submit
it as your own. Clearly acknowledge your sources (state where you obtained the information).
If there is doubt as to the original author of the coursework, the instructor cannot
give full credit (e.g. two students submitting an almost identical assignment, unless
the coursework was assigned as group work).
