Updated 5 March 2021
Learning for Semester 1/Trimester 1
Deakin has implemented the COVID-Normal teaching and learning model, in which we’ll combine the benefits of both online and on-campus modes to deliver students an integrated and innovative blend of learning activities. For Semester 1/Trimester 1:
- Classes (lectures) remain online, as part of our blended on- and off-campus model.
- Practical experiences have returned to campus, where possible, delivered with our COVIDSafe plan in place.
- Seminars, studios and workshops have been re-introduced on campus, where possible, with a combination of online and on-campus learning experiences based on unit and course requirements.
- If you are attending the campus in T1/S1 for the first time (or since last year), please remember you must also have completed the COVIDSafe module and follow Deakin’s Plan to Scan requirements when on campus.
More details are available in your unit sites DeakinLife shortly.
The below details ONLY apply for T3 2020
T3 Special consideration requirements
Applications for Special Consideration should be submitted via the online system, you may be required to provide documentary evidence to support your application, as outlined on the Special Consideration page (i.e. medical certificate, IT Help ticket etc.). Unit teams will be as accommodating as they can; their goal is to enable all students to meet assessment requirements in units. Don’t forget late submissions can affect follow-on tasks, delay feedback and increase time pressure later.
Temporary grading schema – T3 study period
To continue to ensure students are not disadvantaged by the ongoing impact of COVID-19 pandemic, the University has approved the implementation and continued use of the temporary COVID grading schema for units undertaken in T3 and associated teaching periods (Intensive, Start Anytime). For more information please visit the Results frequently asked questions.
