Learning Expectations and Teaching Strategies/Approach
The University is committed to a high standard of professional conduct in all activities, and holds its
commitment and responsibilities to its students as being of paramount importance. Likewise, it
holds expectations about the responsibilities students have as they pursue their studies within the
special environment the University offers. The University’s Code of Conduct for Teaching and
Learning states:
Students are expected to participate actively and positively in the teaching/learning
environment. They must attend classes when and as required, strive to maintain steady
progress within the subject or unit framework, comply with workload expectations, and
submit required work on time.
These are some of the expectations we have of you as a student enrolled in this unit:
Unit Workload
As a guide, it is expected that you will need to allocate at least an average of 8 hours per week to
study in this unit:

3 hours for attendance at the lecture and tutorial,

1 hour reviewing and organising lecture notes,

2 hours reading the textbook and other readings,

2 hours preparing assignments, preparing for quizzes, etc.
Specific Attendance/Performance Requirements
BEA220 is not offered as an online independent study unit and the face-to-face contact that you
have with teaching staff through lectures and workshops is considered a central element of the unit.
Our observation is that students who attend lectures and participate in workshops are rewarded
with improved understanding and performance.
You must attend lectures in weeks 4, 7, and 12 in order to complete your internal assessment tasks.
Students will not be able to sit these tests at alternative times unless they have received prior
approval to do so (for e.g., on the grounds of a medical condition with documentation to be
provided). Attendance at all Workshops is also strongly recommended.
Work, Health and Safety (OH&S)
The University is committed to providing a safe and secure teaching and learning environment. In
addition to specific requirements of this unit you should refer to the University’s policy at:
www.utas.edu.au/work-health-safety.

A prescribed text is a resource that you must have access to for the purposes of studying this unit.
It is essential that you have ready access to the following prescribed text. Note that weekly readings
will be drawn largely from this text. References will also be given in the Weekly Study Guides for the
first edition text.
Charles I. Jones (2010) Macroeconomics, International Student Edition (Second edition) W.W. Norton
& Company, New York
Recommended Texts
A recommended text is a resource that you can use to broaden your understanding of the topics covered in this unit. You
may also find a recommended text helpful when conducting research for assignments.
Many students find it useful to consult alternative references as part of their study program. Some
useful alternative references:
I.M. McDonald, Macroeconomics second edition, Jacaranda Wiley, 1995.
I. Rogers and Neal, Macroeconomics and the Australian Economy, Prentice Hall, 1994.
My Learning Online (MyLO)
Access to the MyLO online learning environment unit is required for this unit. The unit has its own
MyLO site.

MyLO Expectations
1.
Students are expected to maintain the highest standards of conduct across all modes of
communication, either with staff or with other students. Penalties may be imposed if the Unit
Coordinator believes that, in any instance or mode of communication, your language or
content is inappropriate or offensive. MyLO is a public forum. Due levels of respect,
professionalism and high ethical standards are expected of students at all times.
2.
Submission of assessment tasks via MyLO presumes that students have read, understood and
abide by the requirements relating to academic conduct, and in particular, those requirements
relating to plagiarism. All work submitted electronically is presumed to be “signed-off” by the
student submitting as their own work. Any breach of this requirement will lead to student
misconduct processes.
3.
MyLO is an Internet service for teaching and learning provided by the University. It is
expected that you check your units in MyLO for updates at least once a day.
Using MyLO for BEA 220
IMPORTANT!: Before you are provided with access to your unit’s MyLO resources, you must
complete the Student Agreement form. To do this:
1. Access the unit’s MyLO site.
2. Locate the Begin Here folder and click on it to open it. You can find the Begin Here folder by
scrolling down until you see Content Browser OR by clicking on the Content button.
OR
3. Once you have opened the Begin Here folder, click on the Student Agreement file.
OR
4. Read the terms, then check the I agree box. You should now be able to access all available
unit content on MyLO. You only need to do this once in each MyLO unit.
Other important resources on MyLO
Students are expected to regularly check on MyLO for any updates in relation to the unit. Essentially,
MyLO has been incorporated into the delivery of this unit to enhance students' learning experience
by providing access to up-to-date course materials and allowing for online discussion. In addition to
the lecture slides which are uploaded on MyLO on a weekly basis, other unit-related materials such
as supplementary readings and assessment guides can also be accessed on MyLO. Besides, students
BEA 220, Intermediate Macroeconomics
8
are also expected to engage in an active discussion about issues related to the unit through the
discussion forums or chat rooms that are available on MyLO, and this is particularly helpful for
distance students who may utilise the facilities available on MyLO to get in touch with their fellow
distance students and form groups to complete some of the assessment tasks for this unit. In this
regard, MyLO should be treated as the unit's critical platform for learning and communication.
Student Feedback via eVALUate
At the conclusion of each unit students will be asked to provide online responses to a number of
matters relating to the learning and teaching within that unit. All students are asked to respond
honestly to these questions, as all information received is used to enhance the delivery of future
offerings.
Changes to this Unit Based on Previous Student Feedback
The University of Tasmania, on a regular basis, evaluates its teaching and learning environment
through the Student Evaluation of Teaching and Learning (eVALUate) system. The University values
feedback from students and from time to time you will be asked to complete a SETL evaluation for a
unit of study. For more information on eVALUate go to:
http://www.utas.edu.au/student-evaluation-review-and-reporting-unit/evaluate
Details of Teaching Arrangements
Lectures
There will be 12, 2 x 50 minute lectures during the semester commencing weekly in Week 1.
Lectures will begin at 3:00pm on Monday in Lecture Theatre 2 in the Law Building (SB. Law226
Lecture Th2). Lectures will cover the core examinable material in the unit and attendance is strongly
recommended. Developing lecture notes is your own responsibility in this unit. If you miss a lecture
ask a friend or acquaintance for notes. Lectures are not a substitute for reading, particularly of the
textbook, and study conducted in your own time. In weeks 4, 7, and 12, part of the lectures will
involve a quiz, with first two of the four quizzes contributing to 5% of the final grade and the last
10% for the subject.
Workshops
Students are required to attend 11 Workshop sessions. These will be held weekly, commencing in
Week 2. Students must access tutorial problems on MyLO prior to their tutorial, and must bring
these questions with them class. Some questions will be designed to promote discussion; others will
involve guided problem solving; and others are intended to extend material covered in lectures. To
benefit most you should prepare rough answers and come prepared to ask your tutor to explain
parts of the unit that you have not fully understood.
There are 2 groups of Workshops that students can attend.
Group No 1. Thursday 11:00am in Comm 513
Group No 2. Thursday 4:00pm in Hytten 329a Drama studio

Academic Referencing and Style Guide
In your written work you will need to support your ideas by referring to scholarly literature, works of
art and/or inventions. It is important that you understand how to correctly refer to the work of
others and maintain academic integrity.
Failure to appropriately acknowledge the ideas of others constitutes academic dishonesty
(plagiarism), a matter considered by the University of Tasmania as a serious offence.
The appropriate referencing style for this unit is: the Harvard style. For information on presentation
of assignments, including referencing styles:
http://utas.libguides.com/content.php?pid=27520&sid=199808
Review of Assessment and Results
Review of Internal Assessment
It is expected that students will adhere to the following policy for a review of any piece of
continuous/internal assessment. The term continuous/internal assessment includes any assessment
task undertaken across the teaching phase of any unit (such as an assignment, a tutorial
presentation, and online discussion, and the like), as well as any capstone assignment or take-home
exam.
Within five (5) days of release of the assessment result a student may request a meeting with the
assessor for the purpose of an informal review of the result (in accordance with Academic
Assessment Rule No. 2 Clause 22 – www.utas.edu.au/university-council/universitygovernance/rules). During the meeting, the student should be prepared to discuss specifically the
marks for the section(s) of the marking criteria they are disputing and why they consider their
mark(s) is/are incorrect. The assessor will provide a response to the request for review within five (5)
days of the meeting.
If the student is dissatisfied with the response they may request a formal review of assessment by
the Head of School, with the request being lodged within five (5) days of the informal review being
completed. A Review of Internal Assessment Form must be submitted with the formal review
(http://www.studentcentre.utas.edu.au/examinations_and_results/forms_files/review_of_assessm
ent.pdf).
Review of Final Exam/Result
In units with an invigilated exam students may request a review of their final exam result. You may
request to see your exam script after results have been released by completing the Access to Exam
Script Form, which is available from the TSBE Office, or at the following link –
http://www.utas.edu.au/business-and-economics/student-resources. Your unit coordinator will
then contact you by email within five (5) working days of receipt of this form to go through your
exam script.
Should you require a review of your final result a formal request must be made only after
completing the review of exam script process list above. To comply with UTAS policy, this request
must be made within ten (10) days from the release of the final results (in accordance with
Academic Assessment Rule No. 2 Clause 22 – www.utas.edu.au/university-council/universitygovernance/rules). You will need to complete an Application for Review of Assessment Form, which
BEA 220, Intermediate Macroeconomics
14
can be accessed from
www.studentcentre.utas.edu.au/examinations_and_results/forms_files/review_of_assessment.pdf.
Note that if you have passed the unit you will be required to pay $50 for this review.
The TSBE reserves the right to refuse a student request to review final examination scripts should
this process not be followed.

Academic Misconduct and Plagiarism
Academic misconduct includes cheating, plagiarism, allowing another student to copy work for an
assignment or an examination, and any other conduct by which a student:
(a) seeks to gain, for themselves or for any other person, any academic advantage or advancement
to which they or that other person are not entitled; or
(b) improperly disadvantages any other student.
Students engaging in any form of academic misconduct may be dealt with under the Ordinance of
Student Discipline. This can include imposition of penalties that range from a deduction/cancellation
of marks to exclusion from a unit or the University. Details of penalties that can be imposed are
available in the Ordinance of Student Discipline – Part 3 Academic Misconduct, see
www.utas.edu.au/universitycouncil/legislation.
Plagiarism is a form of cheating. It is taking and using someone else’s thoughts, writings or
inventions and representing them as your own, for example:
• using an author’s words without putting them in quotation marks and citing the source;
• using an author’s ideas without proper acknowledgment and citation; or
• copying another student’s work.
It also means using ones’ own work from previously submitted assessment items if repeating a unit.
If you have any doubts about how to refer to the work of others in your assignments, please
consult your lecturer or tutor for relevant referencing guidelines, and the academic integrity
resources on the web at http://www.academicintegrity.utas.edu.au/ The intentional copying of
someone else’s work as one’s own is a serious offence punishable by penalties that may range from
a fine or deduction/cancellation of marks and, in the most serious of cases, to exclusion from a unit,
a course, or the University.
The University and any persons authorised by the University may submit your assessable works to
a plagiarism checking service, to obtain a report on possible instances of plagiarism. Assessable
works may also be included in a reference database. It is a condition of this arrangement that the
original author’s permission is required before a work within the database can be viewed.
For further information on this statement and general referencing guidelines, see
www.utas.edu.au/plagiarism/ or follow the link under ‘Policy, Procedures and Feedback’ on the
Current Students homepage.
