Approach to learning and assessment

The program is offered predominantly in a face-to-face learning environment with supporting e-resources in a reflective practice framework. Courses will include a variety of teaching approaches including seminars, studios, lectures and tutorials and use methods such as collaborative group work, negotiated learning, peer review, presentations, exercises, workshops and discussion.

You can also expect to engage with case studies, problem-based learning and reflective techniques such as blogs and journals. You will learn how to constructively critique your own work and that of others. Peer review is integral to the learning environment and subsequently for professional practice within the creative industries.

Assessment involves ‘learning by doing’ and will include a range of activities such as reports, written reflection, research projects, portfolios, presentations, peer or industry review. Project proposals and presentations will often relate to industry specific issues and/or theoretical constructs impacting on fashion and may involve making contact with industry practitioners regarding contemporary issues.

Most of the assessment you undertake will be designed so that your lecturer and peers can provide you with formative feedback on strengths and areas for improvement in your learning. This approach will enable you to improve on your performance during the program, as well as continue to refine capabilities for your future engagement within the fashion context and learning after graduation.

The Major project in your final semester will be a capstone experience designed as a culmination of your learning throughout the program and provide segue to your future career pathway.

Work integrated learning

RMIT is committed to providing you with an education that strongly links formal learning with professional experience. 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 practice;

- interact with industry and community when undertaking these activities;

- complete these activities in understanding 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.

Across the four years of the program you will undertake a Fashion Design Professional Practice course each year, which include work integrated learning. In these courses you will solve authentic workplace problems or address issues faced in the fashion industry.
