Approach to learning and assessment

The program is delivered using lectures and tutorials in conjunction with projects, on-line and team activities and work integrated learning. There will be three distinctive approaches to learning and teaching.

Flexible Learning Strategies:
a range of teaching and learning techniques will be employed. The objective is to create an environment that can allow you to question, discuss and optimise your own learning. All courses utilise on line delivery of project information, with some courses encouraging students to communicate with the peer group and staff via wikis and blogs.

Action learning: small groups or teams will work together to complete an assigned project or task. Action learning will allow you to collect, analyse data and make decisions on a specific issue with your group within a simulated work place experience.

Projects (assignments): these may be based on trend directions, client briefs, awards and competitions, design simulations and research. In most cases this will be an individual exercise that will allow you to research and analyse an issue and apply the skill sets you have been developing.

Assessment:  Assessment throughout the BA Textile design program is an integral part of the learning process. Assessment feedback will allow you the opportunity to reflect upon your capabilities and identify opportunities for further learning.

The details of assessment in each course are listed within the Course Guides. Assessment varies between courses but will include one or more of the following assessment modes:

  • Assignments
  • Projects
  • Individual or group presentations to peer groups, lecturer and/or industry clients

If you have a long term medical condition and/or disability it may be possible to negotiate to vary aspects of the learning or 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 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) http://www.rmit.edu.au/students/enrolment/credit/he

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 WIL experience may be simulated. The specific WIL courses in this program are: GRAP2349 Textile Industry Engagement and GRAP2348 Digital Textile Design & Industry.

This program provides work related projects in the learning activities and assessment. You will be learning as you are doing professional work, jobs and tasks while in employment. The feedback you get from your supervisor and others on work integrated learning activities and assessment will be vital for your learning. The program prepares and supports you for these experiences.
