Approach to learning and assessment
Our approach to learning and teaching incorporates design studio, lecture, computer laboratory activities, excursions, and the use of face-to-face, online and other flexible delivery methods. The design studio approach simulates the practice in industry and allows for focused and guided technical and skill development alongside conceptual, analytical and theoretical exploration.
In first year you will focus on building skills and knowledge and the activities will include a range of exercises and projects, leading on to more involved industry style briefs. In second year you will complete more complex briefs that reflect industry practice. Throughout the program you will be given individual briefs as well as group projects.
Assessment is designed to give you opportunities to demonstrate what you have learnt and that you are able to apply knowledge and skills at an appropriate level and in a relevant environment. As an independent learner, it is expected that you will take responsibility to seek feedback from your peers, teachers and industry partners to develop your capabilities.
Your assessment in this program will include all or some of the following: briefs and design projects, investigative reports and proposals, reflective journals, and verbal and visual presentations.
If you have a long term medical condition and/or disability it may be possible to negotiate to vary aspects ofthe learning or assessment methods. You can contact Equitable Learning Services https://www.rmit.edu.au/students/support-and-facilities/student-support/equitable-learning-services
If you have already developed areas of skill and knowledge included in this program (for example, through prior studies or work experience), you can apply for credit once you have enrolled in this program. There is information on the RMIT University website about how to apply for Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) https://rmit.edu.au/students/student-essentials/enrolment/apply-for-credit

Work integrated learning
RMIT University is committed to providing you with an education that strongly links formal learning with professional or vocational practice. As a student enrolled in this RMIT University program you will:
- undertake and be assessed on structured activities that allow you to learn,
- apply and demonstrate your professional or vocational practice;
- interact with industry and community when undertaking these activities;
- complete these activities in real work contexts or situations;
and in addition:
- these interactions and the work contexts provide distinctive sources of feedback to you to assist your learning.
Any or all of these aspects of a Work Integrated Learning (WIL) experience may be simulated.
The designated WIL course for this program is:
ARCH1383 Decoration & Design Studio 2
This course incorporates a design brief set by an industry partner who will provide you with feedback during the development and final assessment of the project.Top of page
