Approach to learning and assessment
Your learning experiences in this program will include a broad mix of study modes, including lectures, tutorials, practical exercises, weekly classes, online learning and hands-on practice in relevant aircraft.
The program is conducted on both the City Campus and at the RMIT Flight Training School located at Bendigo Airport, 4 Victa Road, Bendigo. The Bendigo training environment is ideally located close to various types of airspace, terrain and urban development that will maximise variety in navigational experience.Bendigo is strategically located with respect to our Point Cook site, with only 30 minutes flight time between sites.
Assessment in this program is designed to give you opportunities to demonstrate your capabilities and you will find that the forms of assessment used may be different for each course, depending on the course objectives and learning outcomes.
Your assessment in the program may include all or some of the following:
- examinations: an individual form of assessment where you are asked to demonstrate problem solving and your ability to explain underpinning theories required of flying and the aviation industry;
- assignments and projects: some will require you to demonstrate an ability to work alone, while some will involve group work requiring you to be part of a team with other students;
- practical flying: where your practical skills will be assessed against specific criteria based on CASA recommended standards
- assessed tutorials or presentations: a form of in-class test, which you will be required to complete either individually or as a member of a team;
- self-assessment and peer assessment: for assessment activities such as seminars you may be asked to assess your own work, the work of your group, or the work of other groups. This is part of equipping you to become more independent in your own learning and to develop your assessment skills.
The assessment you receive, with the exception of exams, will enable the teaching staff to provide you with feedback on your strong and weak points. This will enable you to improve performance in the future.
If you have a long term medical condition, disability and/or other form of disadvantage it may be possible to negotiate to vary aspects of the learning or assessment methods. You may contact the program manager or the Equitable Learning Services unit if you would like to find out more.Top of page
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 context provide a distinctive source of feedback to you to assist your learning.
Any or all of these aspects of a WIL experience may be in a simulated workplace environment.
Specifically in this program, you will undertake courses that focus on work integrated learning (WIL), these are your individual AERO flying courses such as:
- AERO2619- Flying to Private Pilot Licence
- AERO2616 Commercial Pilot Licence Flying,
- AERO2622 - Flying to Instrument Rating,
- AERO2479 - Flying to Instructor Rating.
You will be assessed on professional and vocational work in the flying training environment, including in the actual aircraft (during flight and on the ground) and in flight simulators, during which you will receive feedback from those involved in your industry.Top of page
