Approach to learning and assessment

This program employs a diverse range of teaching and learning approaches to ensure a distinctive and quality learning environment in which students are recognised as active participants in the learning process. Courses provide for interaction amongst students as a central activity, so that you will have opportunities to collaborate in your learning.  You will be engaged in interactive seminars and workshops, lectures, on line discussions, field trips, industry site visits, industry placements and applied research projects. Current research and industry and consultancy experiences are incorporated into content and teaching approaches and you will be encouraged and supported to see the relevance of research to current practice and to pursue your own areas of intellectual interest.
 
This program exposes you to diverse and challenging perspectives, while fostering the development of critical analysis. You will be encouraged to examine and question your beliefs, to articulate and test your understandings and to confront challenging intellectual questions.

The learning and teaching approaches employed in this program recognise the diverse ways students learn, the need for students to be actively engaged in learning and the need to actively foster preparation for your future professional practice. Students in this program are recognised as individuals, with different abilities and aspirations, and are provided with regular opportunities to consult individually with teaching staff.

Assessment forms part of a structured framework designed to give you the opportunity to learn from feedback as you progress. Assessment tasks are undertaken during each course and are integral to the teaching and learning cycle. Assessment tasks include, but are not limited to, individual essays, individual and group projects, written or verbal presentations, on line discussions, case studies and exams. These assessment tasks have been developed to maximise the opportunity for you to work both individually and collaboratively, and to apply your knowledge and understandings by linking theory to practice. This program provides frequent opportunities for you to gain informed and constructive feedback from teachers and their peers. Teacher to student feedback is tailored to your individual student’s performance and focused on your development. 

The graduate capabilities you will develop in this program have been aligned with the accreditation requirements of the accrediting professional bodies. This strengthens the relevance of this program to your future professional practice, particularly through the Work Integrated Learning (WIL) experiences and activities that this program provides.

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 learning and assessment methods. You can contact the program coordinator or the Disability Liaison Unit if you would like to find out more.

If you have already developed skills 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) http://www.rmit.edu.au/students/enrolment/credit/he

Work integrated learning

RMIT is committed to providing students with an education that strongly links formal learning with workplace experience. As a student enrolled in an RMIT program you will:

Undertake and be assessed on a structured activity that allows you to learn, apply and demonstrate your professional or vocational practice;
Interact with industry and community when undertaking these activities; and
Complete these activities in real or simulated work contexts or situations

Any or all aspects of a WIL experience may be real or simulated. In this program, you will be undertaking specific courses that will encompass work integrated learning (WIL). You will be assessed on professional or vocational work in a work place setting (real or simulated) and receive feedback from those involved in your industry. The WIL courses in this program are:

  • BUIL 1237 Building Measurement and Estimating
  • BUIL 1262 Construction Planning and Design 3

BUIL 1237 Building Measurement and Estimating and BUIL1262 Construction Planning and Design 3 involve your direct consultation with industry to support you to formulate and develop your specialised construction management knowledge.

Program transition plan

In 2015 BP105OS Bachelor of Applied Science (Construction Management) was replaced by BH114SIM Bachelor of Applied Science (Construction Management) (Honours). This change was made to reflect industry outcomes, meet Australian Quality Framework standards and allow all students to complete of an Honours level qualification. 

As part of this change there has also been a minor program structure amendment in years 3 and 4 of the program. These changes have been made to provide you with research knowledge and capability as required for professional accreditation and meets AQF standards for honours graduates. 

The program structure amendment incorporates one change of title and has removed 4 x 12cps courses and replaced them with: 

  • 1 x 12cp research methods course in third year as preparation for a minor thesis 
  • 1 x Management & Leadership course in fourth year
  • 2 x 12 cp research practice courses in fourth year.

If you transferred from BP105OS into BH114SIM, all courses completed or attempted, and your current GPA, will be transferred to the new program. If you have been classified as at risk of unsatisfactory academic progress, you will continue to be classified as at risk when you are enrolled in the new version of the program.  Your time in BP105OS will be counted towards your total time taken to complete the new version of the program. Any leave of absence you have taken from the current program will count as leave of absence already taken from the new version of the program. All students must complete the new program structure to be eligible to graduate with an honours award.
