Approach to learning and assessment

Learning takes place through project work, site visits, online activities and lectures. Classes are interactive and will give you the opportunity to discuss ideas and practice new skills.

Assessment occurs throughout the program and includes:

  • practical demonstrations of competency
  • project work including research projects
  • site based activities
  • oral and visual presentations
  • visual diaries
  • Folio preparation and presentation

The approach to learning and assessment for this program will include both supervised and non-supervised forms of training delivery. 
Supervised training is teacher directed learning and assessment activities. This includes: 
-    Work placements which are mandatory requirements of assessment.
-    Structured online learning activities where there is real time access to your teachers e.g. online lectures, teacher led discussions and online activities.
-    Face-to-face learning e.g. tutorials, lectures, scheduled classes.
-    Assessment tasks.
The supervised hours in this program are: 1193
You will also need to work independently, this includes:
-    Independent study activities such as research, reading, practical and/or theoretical practice tests or assessments. 
-    Work placements which are not directly linked to an assessment of course competencies.

 

Successful completion of this program requires you to demonstrate that you are competent in 29 units of competency. For learning and assessment purposes some of these units of competency have been grouped into clusters as listed below. 

Cluster 1

Work integrated learning

RMIT University 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 be assessed on structured activities that allow you to learn, apply and demonstrate vocational competency.

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 for assessment of competence.

The designated WIL (Work Integrated Learning) courses are:

1.  ARCH5209C Specify soft furnishings for complete interior solutions (MSFID5001)

2. GRAP5294C Explore and apply the creative design process to 2D forms (BSBDES302A)

In these courses students are given a brief which has been developed by practitioners from industry. Students prepare a design response to the brief. Student work is then reviewed by the industry practitioners and students are provided with feedback.

Invited industry guest speakers inform and educate on specific topics throughout the program. Site visits to showrooms, suppliers and manufacturers provide opportunities to research and learn in industry.

In addition there is the opportunity for second year students to participate in a mentor program in conjunction with the DIA Design Institute of Australia. Selected students who apply are linked with industry practitioners to observe and participate in work practices related to the interior decoration industry.
