Approach to learning and assessment

The program uses a variety of contemporary learning and teaching approaches which may include studio practice, lectures, tutorials, workshops, seminars, problem-based learning, reflective techniques e.g. blogs, online and face-to-face presentations and discussions, and group-based learning.  

A major component of the program is studio practice. This will engage you in learning about animation, games and interactivity via an immersion into the field, its methods and practices through set projects and briefs. The studio format gives you the opportunity to explore concepts, techniques and modes of communication through the creation of animated linear or interactive productions that respond to a series of theoretical and technical principles, real and simulated situations and practical constraints. There also may be the opportunity to engage with students from other studios, within this program or other programs, in a setting that encourages peer-to-peer learning through shared experience. 

Workshopping—the feedback received on your digital outcomes by your peers and by the lecturer—is a key learning activity in the program. You are responsible for contributing to the feedback of your own work and that of others. Peer review is integral to the learning environment and subsequently for professional practice within the creative industries. 

The overall approach to assessment in the program combines specific assignments, portfolio production presentations, and peer or industry review. Investigative projects and presentations are directly related to industry-specific outcomes and may culminate in public showings or online outcomes. 

RMIT Advice 

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.
