Approach to learning and assessment

Your learning experiences will be online.

Your learning experiences will contain a broad mix of study modes, including lectures, seminars, webinars, virtual classrooms, and online collaborative project work.

Assessment is designed to give you opportunities to demonstrate your capabilities. You will find that the forms of assessment used may be different for each course, as the assessment you receive must be appropriate to the objectives of each course. 

Your assessment in this program may include all or some of the following:

- Assignments and projects: some will require you to demonstrate an ability to work alone, while some will involve group work requiring you to be part of team with other students;
- Reflective journals: where you pause to consider what you have learnt and reflect on the further development of the related capability;
- Assessed tutorials or presentations: a form of in-class test, which you will be required to complete either individually or as a team:
- Self-assessment and peer-assessment: for assessment activities such as seminars you may be asked to assess your own work, the work of your group, or the work of other groups. This is part of equipping you to become more independent in your own learning and to develop your assessment skills.

The assessment you receive will enable the teaching staff to provide you with feedback on your strong and weak points.  This will enable you to improve your performance in the future.

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.

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
- these interactions and the work context provide a distinctive source of feedback to you to assist your learning;

Any or all of these aspects of a WIL experience may be in a simulated workplace environment.
