									SIGNIFICANT AMMENDMENTS TO THE 2008 COURSE INFORMATION TEMPLATE
The following changes have been made to the 2008 internal course information template in accordance with the
2008 Assessment Policy and Procedures manual and practical changes aligning with the upgrade to an
automated template in 2008. Please do not delete sections or change wording that has been included to comply
with the new policy.

Internal, Off Campus and Transnational
     Change: In the requirement to submit text-based assignments electronically using
        AssignIT – should replaces must.
     Change: Requirement for return of feedback on assignments for students studying
        internally – from two weeks to normally within 10 working days, but no longer than 15
        working days. For external and transnational students the timeline for the return of
        assignments remains 15 working days.
     Change: A full description of assessment tasks is no longer required. A description of
        the tasks which enable an understanding of the requirements and the weighting of the
        assessment is all that is required.
     Change: References to „assignment‟ have been updated to „assessment‟
     Change: In details of the referencing style to be used. Where a referencing style is not
        specified, students are to be advised that they must use a recognised referencing style
        which is to be used consistently throughout the assignment
     Added: In the Special Requirements section there is the requirement to “insert any
        special requirements for undertaking particular components of the course, including but
        not limited to: police checks, immunisations, training for mandatory reporting and
        medical fitness/suitability for placement”

Internal and Off Campus
     Added: wherever there is a reference to the „Course Homepage‟, a link or reference to
        the student portal myUniSA has been included. The enrolled student‟s myUniSA page
        will contain links to information and materials for the course, whereas the course
        homepage is being increasingly used for prospective students and general information
        only. The 2009 template will not contain reference to the course homepage, only
        myUniSA as the primary reference for enrolled students.

Off Campus
     Change: exam arrangements have been updated to reflect the requirement for external
       students to use University exam centres

Transnational
    Removed: general Course Information that was previously contained in the
       Transnational Template has been removed and included in the Extra Course
       Information link and booklet available via the regular link
       http://www.unisanet.unisa.edu.au/extracourseinformation/
