Approach to learning and assessment
The program is designed to be a flexible program of study underpinned by an online student learning management platform that can be accessed anywhere, anytime throughout the teaching period. The Graduate Certificate in Business Administration can be undertaken part-time or full-time. A range of learning methodologies will be utilised, with particular attention paid to providing student centred active learning opportunities that expose you to the world of work, that focus on the principles and practices related to the management and organization of work and workplaces. Problem based learning is incorporated throughout the program, providing opportunities for you to solve business problems with technological approaches and design-thinking methodologies.
The assessment philosophy utilises a range of appropriate and authentic measures linked to the program and course outcomes and are designed to provide you with opportunities to demonstrate the extent to which you have achieved specific learning outcomes. Assignments and projects are also designed to provide a way for you to receive feedback
on your skills development and be able to utilise this feedback to improve your skills and further develop your capabilities.
Depending on courses selected, your progress is assessed by a combination of group and individual assessment tasks. Assessment tasks may include: business plan/reports, academic essays, in-class and online presentations, blogs, group reports, examinations and computer simulations. A critical feature of all assessment tasks is the requirement to link rigorous academic literature with your work experience. Reflective practice is encouraged to apply new knowledge and insights towards effective and professional business practices.
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 (ELS) if you would like to find out more: https://www.rmit.edu.au/students/support-and-facilities/student-support/equitable-learning-services
