Approach to learning and assessment
The program integrates a variety of learning and teaching approaches. Learning will be take place through a combination of face to face classes, online materials and tutorial-style discussions, as well as ‘flipped’ (online) lectures. Courses use a variety of teaching approaches including seminars, lectures and workshops, incorporating collaborative group work, negotiated learning, peer review, presentations and discussion. You can also expect to engage with case studies, problem-based learning and reflective techniques such as blogs and journals.
You will learn how to constructively critique your own work and that of others. Peer review and self-assessment is integral to the learning environment and subsequently for professional practice within the creative industries.
Assessment involves ‘learning by doing’ and will include a range of activities such as professional projects, written reflection, research projects, portfolios, presentations, peer or industry review. Project proposals and presentations will be directly related to industry specific needs and may involve making contact with industry practitioners regarding contemporary issues.
The assessment you undertake will be designed so that your lecturer and/or peers can provide you with ongoing feedback on strengths and areas for improvement in your learning. This approach will enable you to improve on your performance during the program, as well as continue to refine capabilities for your future professional practice and learning.
