Approach to learning and assessment

We use a range of learning activities and supportive learning environment to introduce you to criminal law, the elements and types of criminal offences and the principles of criminal culpability.  You will also learn the principles of management and teamwork in the criminal justice context and develop knowledge of providing services and interventions for families experiencing high levels of relationship conflict.

You will have the opportunity to participate in on site visits, and interact with individuals and groups within the criminal justice sector. On-line and face-to-face interactive engaging discussions with other students will be a key part of your learning. The program also incorporate lectures, tutorials, seminar presentations, online delivery, and project based learning in groups and as an individual.  These approaches are designed to enhance your participation and develop your knowledge about crime and justice through active learning strategies (e.g. group activities) that include case studies, role plays audio visual presentations, simulations of real work practices.

Assessment tasks are designed where possible to simulate the requirements of a workplace environment.  Assessment may include a variety of methods including role pays, simulations, observations, exams, research tasks, tests, reports and essays. This further enhances employability skills in the workplace. All courses in this program lead to the award of grades.

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 Program Coordinator or the Disability Liaison Unit if you would like to find out more.

Students requiring supplemental support as a result of being identified 'at risk' through the 'Academic Progress' process are directed to the Study and Learning Centre for further support in literacy and numeracy skills, academic writing and assignment preparation.  Additional support is also provided through the Disabilities Liaison Unit as required.
