Approach to learning and assessment

Bachelor of Engineering (Aerospace Engineering)

Overall, the teaching style you experience will be appropriate to the type of the course you are studying and to achieve the graduate capabilities designed into your program of study, thereby ensuring that you are employable when you graduate. You will be treated as an adult learner: you will take responsibility for your own learning in an adult and independent way.
 
You will be exposed to the effective use of educational technology, which will enable you to access resources so that you become an 'anytime' and lifelong learner.

As a student you will be exposed to not just teaching, but to a range of teaching and learning activities. Indeed, your interests are furthered by your own engagement in learning activities. This means that you have a responsibility for your own learning. You will therefore be involved in learning activities, many of which will be outside of class contact time. For many activities - even if you are a distance student - you will be working in teams: an environment which will simulate how you will work as a professional. These activities will develop many of the interpersonal skills you need in order to work effectively in the professional environment. These activities will include:

  • Lectures, classes, and/or directed reading: these activities introduce you to essential content. They may also lead you to develop or improve certain appropriate skills;
  • Problem-based Learning: where you may be in a smaller tutorial groups with the aim of applying your knowledge through problem solving, simulating the professional work environment;
  • Laboratories: where you can apply your knowledge with hands-on experimentation or simulation. You gain exposure to physical equipment and learn experimental technique;
  • Assignments and projects: these may be problem based or research based, and may be undertaken in teams or individually. A written report is usually required. Assignments and projects provide you with opportunities to develop specified capabilities and also to demonstrate the level to which you have developed them;
  • Intensive workshops: as in professional practice, some learning may take place over a brief but intensive period. For example, your lecturer may be an expert in a certain discipline, but cannot attend for several hours a week over the duration of a semester. Your classes and support tutorials may be scheduled over 5 days. There will be opportunity for later interaction with your lecturer or a tutor.
  • Work Integrated Learning: you may have the opportunity to take learning activities which are closely linked to industry or simulate industry practice. If you are employed, then your final year project may be based in your workplace, solving a problem for your employer
  • Seminars: where you will report verbally to a student and staff group - again this is practice for the professional workplace. Seminars will give you a specific forum for putting into practice your communication skills, and improving them through use and feedback. Seminars also provide a professionally appropriate platform for developing and exercising skills of critical analysis;
  • Reflective writing: where you give yourself time to consider the learning processes and outcomes you have just experienced. You may consider and document questions such as: What have I learned by doing?; How my previous ideas/attitudes had to change?; What is still causing me difficulties?; What do I still need to learn?; What connections can be made with other knowledge? Reflection can also be used to records feelings, difficulties, ideas and inspirations;
  • Online and distance learning: depending on your location, you may study some or all of your courses at a distance. This means you will access courseware through hard copy sent to you or by way of RMIT's online resources. Learning guides will lead you through each course, and you will communicate with your 'lecturer' by email or other similar means through online learning facilities for each course.
  • Field trips: you will have the opportunity to visit various industrial establishments to see how they function and what they do. Field trips allow you to mesh your conceptual understanding with real application appropriate to the industry. Viewed in the light of application, the conceptual basis can be greatly strengthened;
  • Major project: where you propose, plan and execute a major project which addresses and solves a problem relevant to your studies or career aspirations. The project may be industry based, whether or not you are employed in the industry, and is the final stage of preparing you for the workplace.

Assessment will be varied, as it will be designed to assess your capabilities appropriate to a particular course. Your assessment may be made through the assessment of any of the learning activities listed immediately above, as well as through formal examination.

Bachelor of Business (Management)

During the program you will experience a variety of teaching and learning approaches in the courses you undertake. In many cases, the approach reflects the unique aims of each course; specifically the knowledge capabilities and generic capabilities. As a student, you will be exposed to not only teaching but also learning. It is important for you to note that you will be treated as an ‘adult learner’. This means you are expected to take responsibility for your own learning in a mature and independent way. Your interests and the value of this program to your future career prospects are enhanced by your engagement in learning activities. A range of teaching approaches is used in addition to lectures. These include methods such as:

  • Case-based learning engages you in critical thinking and decision making about realistic problems in a business discipline
  • Project based learning engage you in design, problem solving, decision making, and investigative activities
  • Problem-based learning engages you in problem analysis, research and provision of solutions
  • Cooperative learning enables you to work in collaborative or team-based tasks
  • Reflective learning allows you to reflect on your learning experiences. The objective is to encourage flexible and independent learning and to develop students who not only understand the theory and concepts, but can also readily apply it.
  • Class presentations, group assignments are used extensively to develop personal qualities including clear thinking and resourcefulness and to extend their professional skills to enable them to work in a team and to perform under pressure.
  • Assessment in the BBus (Mgt) is designed to give you the opportunity to demonstrate your capabilities. You will find that various forms of assessment will be used throughout the program since the assessment you receive will be appropriate to the objectives and student learning outcomes for each course.  Successfully completing the assessment tasks ensures the professional accounting bodies and prospective employers of a level of achievement in the capabilities outlined in the program. Assessment in this program may include:
  • Formal examinations: to provide you with the opportunity to demonstrate your understanding and application of fundamental principles to either practical or theoretical issues;
  • Assignments and projects: may be completed individually or in teams.  They will provide you with opportunities to develop your abilities in communication, research and analysis, and problem solving;
  • Research projects: which assess your ability to assimilate, analyse, critically reflect on information and your written communication skills;
  • In-class tests: to provide you with timely feedback on your understanding within a course and allow feedback to assist you in further developing your skills and capabilities during the semester;
  • Formal presentations: enable the development of verbal communication skills and organisational abilities;
  • Portfolio – enable you to report and reflect what you have learnt and to keep collection of a range of models, examples, articles and websites that you will take forward as a resource in your professional life.

Work integrated learning

RMIT is committed to providing you with an education that strongly links formal learning with workplace experience.  Work Integrated Learning will be undertaken in many courses in your program. As a student enrolled in this RMIT 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 and receive feedback through assessment tasks; and
  • complete these activities in real or simulated work contexts or situations.

The following two 12 CP core course include WIL activities where 50% or more of the assessment involves assessors from a WIL partner organisation:

  • OENG1166 Introduction to Professional Engineering Practice where you will participate in an "Engineers Without Borders (EWB)" project which is focussed on sustainable development as identified by EWB and community organisations. 
  • OENG1168 Engineering Capstone Project Part B where you will work under the guidance of a professional engineer who may be from industry or be an academic or research staff member. You will apply your technical knowledge, research, design and professional engineering skills to either discipline specific, or cross disciplinary engineering problems, through robust research and established engineering design processes. 

In addition to these courses you are strongly recommended to undertake at least 10 weeks of engineering work experience supervised by a professional engineer. If your work experience meets the requirements it may be assessed concurrently with your work experience as part of courses such as 

  • OENG1165 Professional Engineering Experience. 
  • MIET1106  Industrial Placement Program

You can enrol in OENG1165 while you are undertaking engineering work experience at any time during your program as a University elective course or you can enrol in it as a technical option course in some programs in your final year.

Bachelor of Business (Management)

As a student enrolled in this RMIT University program you will be provided with an education that strongly links formal learning with professional or vocational practice. The designated Work Integrated Learning (WIL) courses in this program are BUSM3125 Strategic Management (12 credit points) and BUSM4177 Leadership and Decision Making (12 credit points).
