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 BMA334
IMPORTANT! Before you are provided with access to your unit’s MyLO resources, you must

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. Further, students
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. 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.

Academic Referencing and Style Guide
Before starting their assignments, students are advised to familiarise themselves with the following
electronic resources.
The first is the Harvard Referencing System Style Guide, which can be accessed from the UTAS
library: http://utas.libguides.com/content.php?pid=27520&sid=199808. The Harvard style is the
appropriate referencing style for this unit and the guide provides information on presentation of
assignments, including referencing styles. 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 second is the Tasmanian School of Business and Economics’ Writing Assignments: A Guide,
which can be accessed at: http://www.utas.edu.au/business-and-economics/student-resources ..
This guide provides students with useful information about the structure and style of assignments in
the TSBE.

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/academic-governance/academicsenate/academic-senate-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 internal
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 is available at the following link:
http://www.utas.edu.au/business-and-economics/student-resources/forms. The form must be
submitted to the TSBE Office.
BMA334 Entrepreneurship and Innovation (SOU)

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
http://www.utas.edu.au/university-council/university-governance/ordinances.
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 one’s own work from previously submitted assessment items if repeating a unit.
抄 袭 (剽 窃)
鼓励学生就课程的内容进行讨论并相互学习。同时提醒同学们特别注意学校有关
抄袭问题的有关规定。把别人的思想,作品和发明擅自占为己有均被视为抄袭。比如,从因
特网上全部或部分下载文章,拷贝其他同学的作业或者引用有关权威的观点而未进行注释。
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.utas.edu.au/academic-integrity/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
