Digital Citizenship (CU018)

Digital technologies such as artificial intelligence, automation and communications technologies from smart phones to social media, are developing at an astonishing speed and are influencing many aspects of our lives. This Graduate Certificate recognises that all citizens, not just the developers or direct users of these technologies, are affected by the important theoretical, practical and ethical consequences of these developments. Digital citizenship concerns the skills and knowledge to critically evaluate digital technologies. Digital citizens are able to make informed, appropriate and responsible use of digital technologies in order to engage and participate in society and politics. They also understand that all information systems have vulnerabilities, and the importance of protecting these systems and the services they provide, from unauthorised access, harm or misuse. Please note that due to unit availability, this course is only available for students commencing in Semester Two.

Rules

Title

1. These rules are the Digital Citizenship Course Rules.

Terms Used

2. The Glossary provides an explanation of the terms used in these rules.

Applicability of the Student Rules, policies and procedures

3.(1) The Student Rules apply to students in this course.

(2) The policy, policy statements and guidance documents and student procedures apply, except as otherwise indicated in the rules for this course.

Academic Conduct Essentials, Communication and Research Skills And Indigenous Studies Essentials module

4.(1) Except as stated in (2), a student who enrols in an undergraduare degree course of the University for the first time irrespective of whether they have previously been enrolled in another course of the University, must undertake the Academic Conduct Essentials module (the ACE module), Communication and Research Skills (the CARS module) and Indigenous Studies Essentials (the ISE module) in the teaching period in which they are first enrolled.

(2) A student must successfully complete the ACE module within the first teaching period of their enrolment. Failure to complete the module within this timeframe will result in the student's unit results from this teaching period being withheld. These results will continue to be withheld until students avail themselves of a subsequent opportunity to achieve a passing grade in the ACE module. In the event that students complete units in subsequent teaching periods without completing the ACE module, these results will similarly be withheld. Students will not be permitted to submit late review or appeal applications regarding results which have been withheld for this reason and which they were unable to access in the normally permitted review period.

(3) A student who has previously achieved a result of Ungraded Pass (UP) for the CARS module or the ISE module is not required to repeat the relevant module.
