Approach to learning and assessment

Over the duration of the program you will experience a variety of approaches to learning and teaching. The approaches used in each course will be appropriate to the core curriculum areas and graduate capabilities it is designed to develop, and to assist you in developing skills as an independent and lifelong learner. The major styles of teaching and learning you will experience throughout your program will include:

Classroom teaching: utilises a range of teaching and learning techniques including lectures, guest lectures, class presentations, group discussion and student-led discussion. This style of learning is designed to maximise your understanding of the curriculum content and skills. It is designed to provide an environment where you can ask questions and seek feedback as well as contribute to class discussion.

Problem-based learning: you may be in a small practice group or team, or work individually to apply knowledge to solve problems and examine case studies. This technique is designed to simulate the experiences you will encounter working in the diverse range of fields of application for blockchain specifically and disruptive technologies more generally.

Assignments and projects: these may be either research or problem based and may be undertaken in teams or individually. They will provide you with experience at undertaking research and to write effectively and to present your findings and advice to a range of audiences; and may also require you to provide oral presentations. Assignments and projects are also designed to provide a way to receive feedback on your skills development and be able to utilise this feedback to improve your skills and further develop your capabilities in the relevant area.

Flexible delivery: The program will incorporate extensive use of online teaching resources in the provision of support resources to you, and for accessing research sites of relevance to the course content. The University’s learning management system (LMS) will be used for:

  • Learning resources: such as lecture notes and presentation slides which can be used as either preparation or revision materials.
  • Assessment and Feedback Tools: A range of assessment tools will be provided online to assist with course content and to produce immediate feedback. Discussion boards will be used as a forum to discuss and analyse readings, theories, events etc. Quizzes will be used for formative assessment and self-tests, incorporating a range of designs and feedback options.

Assessment: Assessment is designed to provide you with opportunities to demonstrate the extent to which you have developed your capabilities and achieved specified learning outcomes in a given area. Methods of assessment will vary between courses, as it is appropriate to the objectives, learning outcomes and capabilities to be developed in each course.

Assessment may take the form of:

  • Formal examinations: which provide you with the opportunity to demonstrate your understanding and application of fundamental principles to either practical or theoretical issues;
  • Assignments: case studies, projects and journals that may be completed individually or completed in teams, as required by each respective course. They will provide you opportunities to develop your abilities in communications, research and reasoning, and problem solving;
  • Research projects; which assess your ability to fixate, assimilate, analyse and critically reflect on information;
  • In-class tests: provide you with feedback on your early understanding within a course and allow feedback to assist you in further developing your skills and abilities;
  • Presentations: which provide you opportunities to develop your research, reasoning and oral communication skills.
