Semester 1 2012 Timetable
Changes to the Semester 1 timetable will not be accepted after 12pm EST Friday, 9 March.
Changes to this timetable can now be made only in response to exceptional circumstances, which include:

  • unexpected staff illness, resignation etc
  • a change to sessional staff availability for unforeseeable reasons
  • changes necessitated by an unexpected increase/decline in enrolment numbers
  • a scheduled location becomes a health or safety hazard
  • a unit is removed from offering
  • reasonable adjustments to accommodate students with special needs
  • other unforeseeable and extraordinary circumstances outside the control of the Faculty, School or organisational unit.

Should any change requests be made, they must include the reason for the change as well as HOS endorsement. This endorsement should appear in the appropriate column of the Change Request Spreadsheet and be visible in the email trail.

NOTE: Where the reason for the change is not in accordance with the circumstances listed above, the change request must also include:

  • an explanation of why the change was not identified in the Draft/Provisional timetable phase and
  • accompanying written (email) approval from the Head of School, otherwise Timetabling staff will be unable to consider actioning these changes.

Activity Utilisation Reports
These reports show the comparison between predicted and actual enrolments in each unit being offered by a Faculty. The second last report is being forwarded to Schools this week and we ask that Schools respond accordingly to any issues it raises.

Tutorial Direct
Tutorial Direct will close next Friday 9 March and convert to Read Only mode. Staff can still print class lists and students may access their timetable, however, no changes can be made after 4pm EST.
There have been some difficulties experienced by students studying units on weekends. Unfortunately, Tutorial Direct does not always accurately depict the days on which a unit may be running and can show only Saturday or Sunday when in fact, a unit is running on both of these days. If in doubt, the web timetable should be used as the definitive source of information.

Winter Timetable
This timetable is available via the link on the Timetabling web page. Please note that at this stage, no requests have been received for the Autumn study period.

Web Data Collector
Please remember to refer to the User Guides available on the Web Data Collector website for assistance with submitting data for Semester 2 2012. Should you experience any difficulties, do not hesitate to contact Timetabling.
