Approach to learning and assessment

Successful completion of this program requires you to demonstrate competence in 15 units of competency, including 10 core competencies and 5 electives. Weekly workshops and supervised studio sessions are at the core of the Photo Imaging learning experience, but learning activities also include lectures, exercises, demonstrations, discussion, peer presentations, guest speakers, project work and field trips.  Your learning will be supported by on-line resources.

Assessment gives you opportunities to demonstrate your knowledge, skills and capabilities and you will  receive regular feedback on your progress.

Your assessment within the Photo Imaging program will include:

  • folios: samples of specific photo imaging and video work and work-in-progress on major projects such as 2D photo imaging works, proof sheets, visual design layouts .
  • self-assessment and reflection: reflecting on your progress, achievements and experiences within the course, and articulating your insights in a form such as a written or verbal statement or report
  • presentations: in-class individual or group presentation of research, ideas and arguments on a chosen topic.
  • reports: written individual or group presentation of research, ideas and arguments on a chosen topic.
  • projects: complex task which incorporates numerous processes and stages to create a finished work of a kind relevant to industry.
  • tests /ungraded tasks. These will allow you to demonstrate your fundamental knowledge and skills.

You will benefit from ongoing teacher feedback, class workshopping, class and group discussion, self assessment and reflection, and peer review. Where appropriate, you are also given the opportunity to present work to, and receive feedback from, industry professionals.

In this program, assessment is ongoing throughout the semester. Assessment tasks and the form of assessment will be identified in your course guides. Your course guides will also indicate whether grading is applied to an assessment task after competency is established. To access these, please go to the Program Structure section of this Program Guide, select which course you would like to look at and then select which term you would like to view.

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) and credit transfer are ways that RMIT recognises applicants’ skills and knowledge gained through formal and informal education and training, work experience, and/or life experience (including volunteer work; committee responsibilities; family duties, hobbies). If you have already developed competency through prior experience, you may wish to apply for RPL before the program commences or at any time during the program.

Work integrated learning

RMIT University is committed to providing you with an education that strongly links formal learning with work relevant experience. As a student enrolled in this RMIT University program you will be assessed on structured activities that allow you to learn, apply and demonstrate vocational competency.

The WIL nominated course for this program is:

  • VART6269 Capture images in response to a brief
    This course covers the skills and knowledge required to plan and set up a camera shoot. Using professional equipment, and working to planned briefs, you will explore a range of image capture techniques while photographing studio and location subjects.

If you are working, particularly in a job which is related to your studies you will also be learning while at work and may have the opportunity to be assessed in your workplace for some or all of your courses. Feedback from work supervisors and others in the workplace can be used as evidence of competency, and an RMIT University assessor can visit your workplace to observe your work practice.
