Approach to learning and assessment

The learning and teaching approaches you will experience in this program may include, but are not limited to:

Classroom Teaching: utilises a range of teaching and learning techniques which many include lectures, practitioner presentations, class presentations and student-led discussion. This style of learning is designed to maximise your understanding of the curriculum content and skills and 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. This technique is designed to simulate the experiences you will encounter working as a logistics and supply chain practitioner.

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 you with feedback on your learning so that you can improve your skills and further develop your capabilities in the relevant area.

A range of resources will be available online through Canvas:
a. Lecture notes and presentation slides which can be used as either preparation or for revision.
b. Discussion forums may be used to discuss and analyse readings, theories, events etc.
c. Quizzes may be used for formative assessment and self-tests, incorporating a range of designs and feedback options.

Assessment
Assessment in this program will be formative (in semester) and summative (end-of-course). Generally the formative part of assessment may consist of both group-based and individual assessment tasks (assignments, case studies, projects, research report). There could also be some other forms of assessment tasks such as in-class tests, oral presentations and a work folio. In preparing your written submissions for any of the courses you are specifically requested to visit the website: https://www.rmit.edu.au/students/study-support  for RMIT requirements for submission of written works.

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 the learning or assessment methods. You can contact the Equitable Learning Services 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
