General Requirements for Assignments - Bible/Theology and Counselling/Chaplaincy

This guide outlines the College’s expectations for written assessments in Theology, Counselling, and Chaplaincy and Spiritual Care.

Facilitating Transformative Education

One of Morling’s values is that Education is Transformative; that at Morling you will experience life-transforming and excellent education that empowers you to pursue passionate Christian discipleship. This education should be a balance and integration between academic study, practical training, and spiritual formation.

We are committed to:

  • advancing knowledge and understanding through dedicated involvement in scholarly activities
  • improving our society through high levels of skills, knowledge and research, and excellent pastoral, spiritual, education and counselling contributions
  • enabling individuals to grow and learn throughout their lives, through personal and character formation and the enhancement of life-long learning
  • quality education and professional formation of students that meet the expectations of our church, denominational, business, community-based and governmental constituents
  • equitable access to, and opportunities to participate successfully in, higher education, professional development and academic contribution
  • equipping people to work in all spheres of society, and enhancing the wellbeing of the community by contributing to a democratic, equitable and civilised society.

In order to facilitate this commitment, the College uses a variety of assessments. Assessments are used to help you learn as well as judge how much you have learned. Assessments are usually structured as written assignments such as essays, reflections, critical reviews or research papers.

Finding Information

The following resources will also be helpful as you prepare and submit assignments:

Student Handbook

This is available on Morling Online (Moodle) under "Course Essentials & Forms" - in particular, it covers the student code of conduct, academic expectations and misconduct, unit withdrawals, and special consideration.

Morling Online

Morling Online (Moodle) is our central online repository for all information related to the Units students are enrolled in. This includes contact details for lecturers, course Unit outlines, reading lists, and assessment details, as well as student forms, technical help, academic writing guides, study skills support, course planning tools and exam timetables.

There are also several video tutorials on academic writing and research skills, as well as a self-guided unit (MC101 Study Skills Resources), to help you prepare your assignments.
