Canvas is the official Learning Management System at UBC. A Canvas site for this class has been set up, and you will be asked to e-submit assignments on Canvas. In the interests of sustainability and a greener campus, all handouts will be posted on Canvas instead of being distributed in class. It is your responsibility to download and read these handouts. Please check the class Canvas site regularly for handouts and other pertinent posts, especially if you have been absent. The UBC Student Conduct Code and policies are available here: - life/student-code-conduct. Students should familiarize themselves with this information. These guidelines include strict policies concerning academic misconduct and plagiarism. Plagiarism includes behavior ranging from collaborating with a classmate on an assignment that is intended to show individual effort to copying another student’s work and presenting it as your own to not properly citing other scholars’ work.
Syllabus August 23, 2019 6 COMM 203 Section 103 Plagiarism may be met with a failing grade not only on the assignment in question but in the course as a whole. You are expected to know and to comply with the University’s policies on misconduct and plagiarism. If you have any questions about plagiarism, consult the following website: UNIVERSITY POLICIES AND RESOURCES UBC provides resources to support student learning and to maintain healthy lifestyles but recognizes that sometimes crises arise and so there are additional resources to access including those for survivors of sexual violence. UBC values respect for the person and ideas of all members of the academic community. Harassment and discrimination are not tolerated nor is suppression of academic freedom. UBC provides appropriate accommodation for students with disabilities and for religious observances. UBC values academic honesty and students are expected to acknowledge the ideas generated by others and to uphold the highest academic standards in all of their actions. Details of the policies and how to access support are available on the UBC Senate website at ; support‐student‐success . Academic Integrity The academic enterprise is founded on honesty, civility, and integrity. As members of this enterprise, all students are expected to know, understand, and follow the codes of conduct regarding academic integrity. At the most basic level, this means submitting only original work done by you and acknowledging all sources of information or ideas and attributing them to others as required. This also means you should not cheat, copy, or mislead others about what is your work. Violations of academic integrity (i.e., misconduct) lead to the breakdown of the academic enterprise, and therefore serious consequences arise and harsh sanctions are imposed. For example, incidences of plagiarism or cheating may result in a mark of zero on the assignment or exam and more serious consequences may apply if the matter is referred to the President’s Advisory Committee on Student Discipline. Careful records are kept in order to monitor and prevent recurrences.
