Approach to learning and assessment

This program is primarily delivered in a blended mode, which includes a combination of online, self-directed and some face-to-face activities, at the City Campus and is likely to include lectures, tutorials, workshops and labs.

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, depending on the course and program learning outcomes. Your assessment in this program will include 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;
  • 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 tutorial questions and presentations of group projects 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.
  • Writing technical reports including specifications of methods and products resulting from group projects, which is part of the teamwork.

If you have a disability, long-term illness and/or mental health condition or are the primary carer of individuals with a disability it is possible to have adjustments arranged and negotiated to vary aspects of the learning or assessment methods. You can contact the Program Manager or the Equitable Learning Services if you would like to find out more.
