Additional Information

Attendance

The School of Education (SED) requires students meet a minimum attendance requirement of 80% of all scheduled classes (i.1. lectures, tutorials, workshops, seminars) for all courses. Attendance in person is required for tutorials, seminars, and workshops when course are delivered in face-to-face mode. It is the responsibility of students to ensure that their attendance is recorded for the face to face either by electronic means or via an attendance register. Attendance in online or blended mode will be assessed through digital participation.  

This attendance requirement supports postgraduate students to achieve the specific program or course learning outcomes of each course in accordance with national (AITSL) and state (NESA) program standards and maintenance of teacher accreditation policies.

Students seeking to claim further study to maintain teacher accreditation at proficient, highly accomplished and lead levels through participation in postgraduate programs must adhere to the SED Attendance Requirement to be eligible to meet the requirements of the NESA Further Undergraduate and Postgraduate Studies Policy: Maintenance of Accreditation (2016)

It is the responsibility of the student to catch up on any learning missed due to absences. To arrange alternative activities to address the content missed students should contact the Course Convenor. Failure to meet the minimum attendance requirement of 80% will result in an Unsatisfactory Fail (UF) for the course regardless of performance on assessment tasks or other requirements for the course.
