Approach to learning and assessment

Over the duration of the program you will be taught by academic staff qualified to teach Australian higher education programs. You will experience a variety of teaching and learning approaches. Each approach will be tailored to the course’s core curriculum areas and the graduate capabilities developed.  It is important for you to note that you will be treated as an ‘adult learner’. In conjunction with teacher-directed learning activities, you are expected to take responsibility for self-learning in a mature and independent way. Engaging in self-learning processes is part of everyday life in workplaces; hence, the value of this program to your future career prospects is enhanced by your participation in such learning activities. 
The approaches to teaching, learning and assessment throughout the program will include (but are not limited to): 

Active learning: May include lectures, class presentations, group discussions, student-led discussions etc. This style of learning is designed to maximise your understanding of the curriculum content and develop appropriate skills. It is designed to provide an environment where you can ask questions and seek feedback as well as contribute to class discussion and apply theory to practice. 

Flexible delivery: The program will include the use of online resources. These are designed to enhance your experience by providing ongoing access and the flexibility to study when and where you want.  These may include resources such as lecture notes, videos, assessments preparation and interactive tools such as discussion boards. 

Problem-Based Learning: Problem-based learning engages you in analytical thinking, research and provision of solutions to real-world scenarios and situations. 

Cooperative learning: Enables you to work in collaborative team-based tasks.

Assignments and projects: These may be either research or problem based, and will be undertaken on both an individual and team basis.  These assessments will provide you with experience at undertaking research and writing effectively to present findings and recommendations to a range of audiences.

In-class tests: Formative in-class tests will provide feedback on your early understanding of the respective courses, curriculum and learning goals. The feedback will assist in further developing skills and abilities before summative tests are given.

Formal examinations: Will provide you with the opportunity to demonstrate your understanding and application of tourism and hospitality Mgt principles related to either practical skills or theoretical knowledge.

If you have a long-term medical condition and/or another form of disability and are registered under RMIT University Vietnam’s Equity and Disability Resource Centre (EDRC) you may apply to vary the aspects of the learning or assessment methods accordingly. You can contact the Program Coordinator or the RMIT University Vietnam's Disability Resource Centre (DRC) for more information

Capstone Experience: The course Strategic Mgt for Tourism and Hospitality along with your mandatory internship will provide a capstone experience. The course requires you to apply the knowledge and skills you obtained from your previous courses to strategic Mgt scenarios in the tourism and hospitality industry. Aside from revisiting principles, concepts and theories from previous courses, you will be required to demonstrate your understanding of broad industry issues and practical issues such as work activities and work procedures found in a tourism or hospitality organisation. The course culminates in a research project where you are required to identify a problem within a tourism or hospitality organisation, analyse the problem and provide appropriate strategies and solutions. Your internship extends the capstone experience, where you will be required to reflect and evaluate how the knowledge and skills acquired throughout the program both influences and contributes to your practical experience.

Academic integrity 
The university employs technology to monitor the academic integrity of your work, for example Turnitin, which is a software-based plagiarism monitor used to verify the originality of all written assignments submitted by a student. More information on academic integrity is located at: http://www.rmit.edu.au/academicintegrity/students.

Work integrated learning

RMIT is committed to providing you with an education that strongly links formal learning with workplace experience.  By enrolling in an RMIT program you will: 

  • Undertake and be assessed on a structured activity that allows you to learn, apply and demonstrate professional or vocational practice. 
  • Interact with industry and community when undertaking this activity. 
  • Complete an activity in a work context or situation that may include teamwork with other students from different disciplines. 
  • Have your learning underpinned by feedback gained from interactions and contexts distinctive to workplace experiences. 

In this program, there is an internship placement (BUSM4622 – Business Internship) where you will undertake at least 12 weeks of work experience in a professional tourism and hospitality environment. There are also another 8 required courses that have Work Integrated Learning (WIL) activities embedded in them.  The courses will provide opportunities to apply skills and knowledge learnt during the program to a work-based environment. Your performance competency will be assessed in both scheduled classroom assessment and real and simulated workplace scenarios. Feedback and interactions from the industry is integral to your learning experience. The following are the list of courses with WIL based assessment:

  • Tourism Planning & Resource Mgt (Designated to include at least 50% WIL based assessment)
  • Eco-tourism & Sustainable Hospitality Mgt (Designated to include at least 50% WIL based assessment)
  • Business Internship (Designated to include at least 50% WIL based assessment)
