Approach to learning and assessment
The approach to learning and assessment for this program includes both structured and unstructured forms of training delivery.
Structured training involves teacher directed learning and assessment activities. These activities can be either supervised or unsupervised:
Structured supervised activities include:
- Simulated workplace activities directly supervised by an RMIT trainer or assessor
- 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 where there is an RMIT assessor present.
Structured unsupervised activities include:
Teacher directed hours that contribute to achieving unit of competency/ course outcomes but that are not directly supervised by an RMIT trainer or assessor. E.g. Set preparation for class, assignment work, online exercises, set reading, mandatory work experience, field placement.
Unstructured training involves learner directed activities such as research, reading, investigation, online collaboration, practice tests or preparing for assessments. It can also include practice of technical skills, industry familiarisation and work experience (not directly linked to an assessment of course competencies).
Successful completion of this program requires that you demonstrate that you are competent in 15 units of competency. For learning and assessment purposes some of these units have been grouped together. The table below indicates which of the 15 units are delivered together.
Unit Code and Title
Cluster 1 - 2D 1
CUAANM513 Design specifications for animation and digital visual effects

Learning is conducted in the following types of environments:
- computer labs – practical classes held in labs that contain industry-standard Apple Mac computers and a range of software.
- auditoriums – industry speakers and graduates are invited to share their experiences and provide students with valuable insider information.
- studio – group projects are undertaken in computer labs, reflecting a professional studio production experience.
In addition to computer labs, you have access to cutting-edge production equipment including HD video, professional audio, and imaging equipment.
Your learning experience will involve:
- teacher-guided instruction
- peer teaching and class presentations
- group discussion
- independent project-based work
- workshopping of students’ own projects
- guest lectures
Out-of-class activities will include:
- online activities
- project work
- independent investigation
- independent study
You will have access to online resources through the myRMIT student portal.
Assessment is ongoing throughout the program and you will be assessed by folio submission as well as skills demonstration. Some assessments will be group-based but many projects will be individually conducted and assessed. Your assessment tasks may also include presentations, reports, assignments, and projects. 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)
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.
Students with disabilities and/or long term medical conditions
If you have a long-term medical condition, disability, and/or other forms of disadvantage it may be possible to negotiate to vary aspects of the learning or assessment methods. You can contact the program coordinator or Equitable Learning Services if you would like to find out more
Work integrated learning
RMIT University is committed to providing you with an education that strongly links formal learning with professional or vocational practice. As a student enrolled in this RMIT University program you will:
- undertake and be assessed on structured activities that allow you to learn, apply and demonstrate your professional or vocational practice;
- interact with industry and community when undertaking these activities;
- complete these activities in real work contexts or situations;
and in addition:
- these interactions and the work contexts provide distinctive sources of feedback to you to assist your learning.
Any or all of these aspects of a WIL experience may be simulated
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.Top of page
