Administrative arrangements

All enquiries are handled by Mrs R Gelderblom (room 506, Schumann Building). Any administrative (or other) problems that cannot be dealt with by Mrs Gelderblom, will be managed by the module convenor of the particular module.

Only in the case of any further problems, should the matter be taken up with the departmental chairman, Prof Schoombee. Students are welcome to consult lecturers during office hours, as well as immediately after lectures.

Handouts

From time to time class-notes and other handouts will be handed out in class. After that the material will then only be available for the following two days at the office of Mrs Wanza (room 401, Schumann Building).

WebStudies

WebStudies (formerly WebCT) is an important medium of communication between the department and the students. Students are therefore expected to visit http://webstudies.sun.ac.za on a regular basis. Information, including course outlines, test venues, comments on test and exam papers and certain class notes, will be placed on WebCT.

Essays, assignments and plagiarism

Plagiarism is when words / phrases are copied from an original source without acknowledging the source. Plagiarism is illegal and is viewed as a serious offence. Technological progress and specifically the internet, has led to plagiarism becoming a big problem especially at universities and other academic institutions. The department has adopted several rules to address this problem. If students do not adhere to these rules, they will be guilty of plagiarism. The department will refer such students to the disciplinary committee of the university and students that are found guilty in this way, can be expelled from the university.

Each student that hands in an essay or an assignment, has to sign a form that states that there is no plagiarism in the essay. This form is available on WebCT. The final copy of the essay or assignment has to be loaded electronically onto the internet (www.turnitin.com). Details regarding this procedure will be announced in the classes.
