Approach to learning and assessment

Over the duration of the program you will experience a variety of approaches to learning and teaching. The approaches used in each course will be appropriate to the core curriculum areas and graduate capabilities it is designed to develop, and to assist you in developing skills as an independent and lifelong learner. The major styles of teaching and learning you will experience throughout your program will include:

Classroom teaching: utilises a range of teaching and learning techniques including lectures, guest lectures, 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.

Problem-based learning: you may be in a small practice 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 in the diverse range of fields of application for blockchain specifically and disruptive technologies more generally.

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 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.

Flexible delivery: The program will incorporate extensive use of online teaching resources in the provision of support resources to you, and for accessing research sites of relevance to the course content. The University’s learning management system (LMS) will be used for:

  • Learning resources: such as lecture notes and presentation slides which can be used as either preparation or revision materials
  • Assessment and Feedback Tools: A range of assessment tools will be provided online to assist with course content and to produce immediate feedback. Discussion boards will be used as a forum to discuss and analyse readings, theories, events etc. Quizzes will be used for formative assessment and self-tests, incorporating a range of designs and feedback options.

Assessment: Assessment is designed to provide you with opportunities to demonstrate the extent to which you have developed your capabilities and achieved specified learning outcomes in a given area. Methods of assessment will vary between courses, as it is appropriate to the objectives, learning outcomes and capabilities to be developed in each course.

Assessment may take the form of:

  • Formal examinations: which provide you with the opportunity to demonstrate your understanding and application of fundamental principles to either practical or theoretical issues;
  • Assignments: case studies, projects and journals that may be completed individually or completed in teams, as required by each respective course. They will provide you opportunities to develop your abilities in communications, research and reasoning, and problem solving.
  • Research projects; which assess your ability to fixate, assimilate, analyse and critically reflect on information;
  • In-class tests: provide you with feedback on your early understanding within a course and allow feedback to assist you in further developing your skills and abilities;
  • Presentations: which provide you opportunities to develop your research, reasoning and oral communication skills.

For more information on assessment, refer to the RMIT Assessment Processes policy.

Please note that 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 (ELS) unit if you would like to find out more. Information about ELS can be found via the following link:

Semester 1, 2022 is the final intake for BP334 Bachelor of Business (Blockchain Enabled Business). 

The BP334 Bachelor of Business (Blockchain Enabled Business) program will be formally discontinued from Semester 2, 2022, and the final intake for admission into the BP334 Bachelor of Business (Blockchain Enabled Business) program will be Semester 1, 2022. The program will be taught out to current students until Semester 2, 2030. If you anticipate that you will successfully complete this program by the end of 2021, these changes do not apply to you. 

Current students who will not finish the program by the end of 2021 have the option to either:

Option 1 - Remain in your current program

Please refer to the course teach-out schedule for your current program which will be provided to your RMIT student email to help you plan your enrolment.  

If you commenced the program before Semester 2 2021, please refer to the following transition rules: 

  • If you have completed LAW2442 Commercial Law, you do not need to complete LAW2442 Business Law, as this is a course title change only. 
  • If you have completed ACCT2326 Accounting and Taxation in the Digital World, you do not need to complete ACCT2326 Accounting and Taxation in the Digital Economy, as this is a course title change only. 

Option 2 - Transfer to the BP343 Bachelor of Business or any other available RMIT program

Recommended for students in the first year of your current program. 

The equivalent major in the new program to your existing degree is Blockchain Enabled Business.
