Approach to learning and assessment

The program integrates face to face and online environments that enable you to actively learn with your peers. In order to help you to become a lifelong learner you will be supported by academics to take responsibiltiy for all aspects of your learning.

You will experience a variety of teaching approaches a variety of styles including lectures, and associated tutorials, workshops, project and problem based learning and intensive mode classes. You will also engage in methods such as collaborative group work, case studies, negotiated learning, peer review, presentations, exercises, and reflective techniques such as journals.

Assessment will include written exercises (including essays, reports, reflective pieces, policies), oral presentations, graphic presentations, and progressive practice-based assessments to allow you the opportunity to demonstrate your knowledge and development of program learning outcomes. At all times assessment is aligned with the program and course learning outcomes and learning activities. You will receive feedback both formally on your assignments and informally through class or email exchanges, to facilitate your learning.

If you have a long term medical condition, disability and/or other form of disadvantage it may be possible to negotiate variations to aspects of the learning or assessment methods. You can contact the Program Manager or the Equitable Learning Service Unit (https://www.rmit.edu.au/students/support-and-facilities/ student-support/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.

Work integrated learning

RMIT is committed to providing you with an education that strongly links formal learning with workplace experience. 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 Work Integrated Learning (WIL) experience may be simulated.

In this program, you will be doing several courses that have work-integrated or project-based elements. Each year professionals are asked to provide project briefs that you will refine, research and report on utilising research skills learned in other courses. The primary WIL course in this program is ENVI1212 Regional Planning Project.
