The major styles of teaching and learning you will experience throughout your program will include, but are not limited to the following:

Classroom teaching: This utilises a range of teaching and learning techniques including lectures, guest lectures by practitioners, class presentations, group discussion and student-led discussion. This style of learning is designed to maximise your understanding of the curriculum content and skills. It is designed to provide an environment where you can ask questions and seek feedback as well as contribute to class discussion with your peers.

Problem-based learning:  You may be in a small group or team, or work individually to apply knowledge to solve problems and examine case studies. his technique is designed to simulate the experiences you will encounter working as a as a professional in industry.

Assignments and projects: These may be either research or problem based, and may be undertaken in teams or individually. They will provide you with experience at undertaking research and reasoning, to write effectively and to present your findings and advice to a range of audiences; and may also require you to provide oral presentations. Assignments and projects are also designed to provide a way to receive feedback on your skills development and be able to utilise this feedback to improve your skills and further develop your capabilities in the relevant area.
