|All - Assessment Task 1:Simulation Proposal|
The goal of this assessment is to critically reflect on practice, identify an issue where simulation could be utilised to address an educational need and develop a proposal for a simulation teaching and learning activity.
|All - Assessment Task 2:Simulation Teaching Plan|
The goal of this assessment is to develop a simulation teaching plan for an immersive simulation.
Using the provided simulation plan template, your simulation teaching plan will outline: the practice issue and significance; simulation design and justification, learning outcomes; ethical considerations; the simulation structure and management; roles; associated resources and equipment and structured debrief model with guided reflective questions. This work is supported by research, with a reference list provided at the end of the plan.
|All - Assessment Task 3:Simulation recording and Reflective essay|
The goal of this assessment is to implement the simulation designed in assessment task two, capture this on video recording and critically reflect on the effectiveness of the design and implementation of your teaching plan.
|Product:||Artefact - Creative, and Written Piece|
Implement the simulation plan developed in assessment task two. Capture this on video recording and use a model of structured reflection as a framework to write an essay that critically appraises the simulation learning activity captured on the video recording.
A 12-unit course will have total of 150 learning hours which will include directed study hours (including online if required), self-directed learning and completion of assessable tasks. Student workload is calculated at 12.5 learning hours per one unit.

Academic integrity is the ethical standard of university participation. It ensures that students graduate as a result of proving they are competent in their discipline. This is integral in maintaining the value of academic qualifications. Each industry has expectations and standards of the skills and knowledge within that discipline and these are reflected in assessment.
Academic integrity means that you do not engage in any activity that is considered to be academic fraud; including plagiarism, collusion or outsourcing any part of any assessment item to any other person. You are expected to be honest and ethical by completing all work yourself and indicating in your work which ideas and information were developed by you and which were taken from others. You cannot provide your assessment work to others. You are also expected to provide evidence of wide and critical reading, usually by using appropriate academic references.
In order to minimise incidents of academic fraud, this course may require that some of its assessment tasks, when submitted to Canvas, are electronically checked through Turnitin. This software allows for text comparisons to be made between your submitted assessment item and all other work to which Turnitin has access.
Eligibility for Supplementary Assessment Your eligibility for supplementary assessment in a course is dependent of the following conditions applying: The final mark is in the percentage range 47% to 49.4% The course is graded using the Standard Grading scale You have not failed an assessment task in the course due to academic misconduct
Late submission of assessment tasks may be penalised at the following maximum rate: - 5% (of the assessment task's identified value) per day for the first two days from the date identified as the due date for the assessment task. - 10% (of the assessment task's identified value) for the third day - 20% (of the assessment task's identified value) for the fourth day and subsequent days up to and including seven days from the date identified as the due date for the assessment task. - A result of zero is awarded for an assessment task submitted after seven days from the date identified as the due date for the assessment task. Weekdays and weekends are included in the calculation of days late. To request an extension you must contact your course coordinator to negotiate an outcome.
