Attendance is important in this subject because it is based on a collaborative approach which involves essential workshops and interchange of ideas with other students and the tutor. An attendance roll will be taken at each class. Where possible, students should advise the tutor in a timely manner if they are unable to attend. Students who fail to attend 85% of classes will be refused to have their final assessment item assessed (see Rule 3.8).
Part of the requirement for this subject is that the community organisation can use in any way the results of the group project as part of the students donation to the community. In return the community organisation agrees to credit the students in work that is published, and UTS retains the right to publish any student work for promotional and education purposes.
