Approach to learning and assessment

Successful completion of this program requires you to demonstrate that you are competent in all 9 units of competency. The learning and assessments are based on industry standard requirements for Myotherapy, and our approach is focussed on preparing you for work in the Myotherapy industry.

You will participate in a range of learning activities including practical demonstrations, simulated clinic sessions, lectures in classrooms, tutorials and online learning.

You will perform a minimum of 75 hours of supervised clinical practice involving 30 clients with varied musculoskeletal conditions. Clients will include males and females from different stages of life.  These hours will be completed in the RMIT Myotherapy student clinic.  You will complete one supervised clinic shift per week treating clients from the public.

Assessment will be implemented in many forms including:

  • Written assessment tasks
  • Practical and tutorial assessments tasks
  • Group and individual projects Practical demonstrations
  • Oral presentations
  • Simulations, Role plays & Case Studies Workplace Assessment

The style of assessment will provide you with:

  • Opportunities to demonstrate application of the necessary knowledge, attitudes and skills not just recall information.
  • Information on your progress throughout your program with an emphasis on encouraging you to monitor your own progress and plan your program of study.
  • An open system where standards are specified and the required level of competence is known beforehand.

Work integrated learning

RMIT is committed to providing you with an education that strongly links formal learning with workplace experience.  As a student enrolled in this RMIT program you will:

  • interact with industry and community when undertaking these activities;  and
  • complete these activities in a real or simulated work contexts or situations.

In this program, you will be doing specific courses that focus on work integrated learning (WIL). You will be assessed on professional or vocational work in a work place setting (real or simulated) and receive feedback from those involved in your industry.

Throughout your studies students are required to treat a range of clients in the RMIT University student clinic as part of work integrated learning.
