|Assessment Type||Learning Outcome Addressed|
All student work is initially assessed by the named sta member(s) oering the course topic. Provisional grades are conrmed at the Design Grading Moderation Review (DGMR) in order to ensure parity of grading standards and across course topics. All marks are indicative until conrmed in the Examiner’s Meeting. The Design Grading Moderation Review (DGMR) process is rigorous and the School stands by it. The School will not regrade work. The only exception to this is the very rare situation where there is new information regarding some factor(s) that was afecting the student's capacity in the time leading up to examination. A student can however request a discussion of their own work and performance and how the grade was awarded. In the rst instance a student should make an appointment to discuss their work with their tutor. If, after meeting with the tutor, a student wishes to pursue this discussion further, they can then make a meeting with the Associate Director Design, and subsequent to this, with the Head of the Architecture Programmes.
Location plans for Final Reviews and Design Grading Moderation Review (DGMR) are displayed in studio spaces and on Canvas prior to week 11. It is important to have your work pinned up in the correct location by the time indicated by your studio teacher. Your teacher will check the material that you have handed in. Unless there is a genuine emergency you must submit your work at this time. Delays in printing are not an acceptable excuse. If you have printing issues, pin up tiled A3 prints and replace these with banner prints for the crit, but the content must be identical. In the eyes of the University this hand in plays the role of the exam – not submitting work by this time constitutes not attending the exam. Where a student has been unable to attend to their studies for a period of time in the semester they may apply for an Extension of Time. Late submissions will be considered on medical and special grounds when supported by a health or other professional, and when the application is made according to the procedure below. Coursework not received by the due date, and for which no extension of time has been approved, will receive the grade ‘DNC’ (Did Not Complete). Requests for extensions of time must be submitted and approved before the due date unless there are exceptional circumstances. Students applying for an extension of time must obtain an Extension of Time Form for Coursework Submission from the Canvas webpage for this course and complete the required details. The application form must be signed by your tutor and the Associate Director Design.
Teaching & Learning Methods
This course is a standard 30 point course and students are expected to spend 20 hours per week involved in each 30 point course that they are enrolled in. Of this, 8 hours are undertaken in studio learning settings and you are expected to attend each of these. The remainder of the 12 hours per week will comprise self-directed and informal group study in preparation for the studio sessions.
Attendance is expected at scheduled activities including studios, workshops, presentations and site visits to complete components of this course. Some presentations will be available as recordings. Other learning activities in studios will typically not be available as recordings. Where the course involves o-shore students, live online events including group discussions, one-to-one design sessions and presentations will occur. Attendance on campus is required for the nal presentation and for other scheduled presentations events. In the case of o-shore students, this requirement will be met via online resources. The activities for the course are scheduled as a standard weekly timetable delivery.
Course materials are made available in a learning and collaboration tool called Canvas which also includes reading lists and lecture recordings (where available).
Please remember that the recording of any class on a personal device requires the permission of the instructor.
Studios and student access to computers and internet: Each studio topic group is allocated a space in the architecture studios and students are strongly encouraged to work in the studios alongside their peers. Please look for the studio plans pinned up in studio spaces at the start of the semester to locate your group’s space. In the studios all students have access to computers and the internet. Students should note that in submitting their signed studio ballot they are declaring that they have received, read, understood, and agree to abide by all the rules and guidelines noted in the documents “Design Courses and the Use of the Studio Spaces: Guidelines and Requirements” and the “Rules for the Use of the Studios” (both on Canvas).
Health & Safety
At the end of every semester students will be invited to give feedback on the course and teaching through a tool called SET or Qualtrics. The lecturers and course co-ordinators will consider all feedback and respond with summaries and actions.
Your feedback helps teachers to improve the course and its delivery for future students.
Class Representatives in each class can take feedback to the department and faculty staff-student consultative committees.

Attendance in studio class as well as engagement with course activities and readings supports academic success. Therefore, it is strongly recommended that students make every eort to attend class and complete all the necessary in-class requirements (see the Student Charter). Attendance in studio and for the duration of presentation sessions is mandatory – students are expected to support and learn from their colleagues. This course may include some group work activities.
The University of Auckland will not tolerate cheating, or assisting others to cheat, and views cheating in coursework as a serious academic offence. The work that a student submits for grading must be the student's own work, reflecting their learning. Where work from other sources is used, it must be properly acknowledged and referenced. This requirement also applies to sources on the internet. A student's assessed work may be reviewed against online source material using computerised detection mechanisms.
Class representatives are students tasked with representing student issues to departments, faculties, and the wider university. If you have a complaint about this course, please contact your class rep who will know how to raise it in the right channels. See your departmental noticeboard for contact details for your class reps.

All students are asked to discuss any impairment related requirements privately, face to face and/or in written form with the course coordinator, lecturer or tutor.
Student Disability Services also provides support for students with a wide range of impairments, both visible and invisible, to succeed and excel at the University. For more information and contact details, please visit the Student Disability Services’ website http://disability.auckland.ac.nz
If your ability to complete assessed coursework is affected by illness or other personal circumstances outside of your control, contact a member of teaching staff as soon as possible before the assessment is due.
If your personal circumstances significantly affect your performance, or preparation, for an exam or eligible written test, refer to the University’s aegrotat or compassionate consideration page https://www.auckland.ac.nz/en/students/academic-information/exams-and-final-results/during-exams/aegrotat-and-compassionate-consideration.html.
This should be done as soon as possible and no later than seven days after the affected test or exam date.
In the event of an unexpected disruption we undertake to maintain the continuity and standard of teaching and learning in all your courses throughout the year. If there are unexpected disruptions the University has contingency plans to ensure that access to your course continues and your assessment is fair, and not compromised. Some adjustments may need to be made in emergencies. You will be kept fully informed by your course co-ordinator, and if disruption occurs you should refer to the University Website for information about how to proceed.
