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 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 your peers. Teacher to student feedback is tailored to your individual 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 or other form of disadvantage it may be possible to negotiate to vary aspects of learning or assessment methods. You can contact the program coordinator or 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 the program. There is information on the RMIT website about how to apply for Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) http://www,rmmit.edu.au/students/enrolments/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 simulated. In this program, you will be undertaking specific courses that focus on 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:

  • BUIL1215 Research Project
  • MKTG1317 Professional Property Practice

BUIL 1215 'Research Project' involves your direct consultation with industry, as well as academic supervisors to support you to formulate and develop your chosen area of research; and to analyse your research findings, Projects will be published by industry. A poster presentation by you to industry and your peers will be held at the end of Semester as part of the School's Awards Night.

MKTG1317 Professional Property Practice involves your critical engagement with key industry issues. You will receive direct feedback from industry, as well as your teachers, to support you to explore relevant and current industry and professional practice issues.

Program transition plan

From first semester 2015 the program code and title of BP209 Bachelor of Applied Science (Property and Valuation) will change so that it reflects industry outcomes, meets Australian Quality Framework standards and recognises the completion of an Honours level qualification. This means that from 2015 all new students will commence into the program with a new title and program code. 

The new program code and title are: 

* BH113 Bachelor of Applied Science (Property and Valuation) (Honours) 

As part of this change there has also been a minor program structure amendment to be introduced in 2015. 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 course moving from 2nd year to 3rd year and has removed 3 x 12cps courses and replaced them with: 

* 1 x 12cp research methods course in third year as preparation for a minor thesis 

* 2 x 12 cp research practice courses in fourth year. 

A small number of students enrolled in BP209 maybe required to undertake additional semesters of study to complete the required research courses to be eligible for the new Honours title.  If you are one of these students you will have two options. 

The first option is to remain enrolled in and complete BP209 Bachelor of Applied Science (Property and Valuation) by the end of 2016.  If you have choose to remain enrolled and complete BP209 you will be able to enrol into courses up until second semester 2016 and will have until the end of semester 2 2016 to successfully complete your program. If you have not completed BP209 by the end of 2016 you will be required to transition into the new program BH113 and complete any outstanding requirements of that program to graduate with an honours award.

The second option is to transition to BH113 Bachelor of Applied Science (Property and Valuation) (Honours) program from 2015 with the understanding that you must meet the program completion requirements for the honours program.  

The school has undertaken a review of enrolments and provided advice to all students regarding their circumstances. If you are unsure about your options please contact your program as soon as possible.
