Approach to learning and assessment

Classes are taught in a combination of classroom sessions, tutorials, on line learning, practical  sessions in the simulation laboratory and placement in an approved clinical setting. Courses are linked into clinical competencies.

 Assessment is ongoing throughout the program, and may include written examinations, on line quizzes, case studies, written assignments, class presentations, practical assignments and clinical assessments.

 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 Equitable Learning Services if you would like to find out more.

 

Program Specific Information:

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 of competency, and an RMIT University assessor can visit your workplace to observe your work practice.

All students will undertake clinical placements in Acute Care, Aged Care, Mental Health, Primary Health Care and Rehabilitation as part of their program. They will work along side qualified staff and will be instructed by a clinical supervisor who will also gather evidence for assessment in these workplaces.
