You will experience a range of teaching and learning approaches that are intended to enhance the development of your skills and knowledge, including seminars, lectures, workshops, tutorials, industry-based presentations, problem-based learning, presentations, group-based learning, independent research, reflective learning techniques and case studies. You will be also required to demonstrate different methods of communication through verbal, written and internet based approaches.  In particular, Work Integrated Learning (WIL) will provide you with vocational knowledge that will be useful for working within the criminal justice sector.

You assessment is designed to complement your teaching and learning experience and your skills and knowledge will be assessed through a range of assessment tasks that include essay writing, report  and project writing, class presentations, group work, on-line discussion and other on-line activities, case studies, problem solving and analysis, industry-based assessment, and examinations.

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 in addition:

- these interactions and the work contexts provide distinctive sources of feedback to you to assist your learning.

 

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

In this program you will have the opportunity to engage directly with industry through a variety of learning activities including group projects and industry placements to enhance and develop your knowledge and skills in a work context.

The specific WIL course for this program is HUSO2160 Transforming organisations. The course brings together theoretical understandings of change management perspectives and Work Integrated Learning (WIL) activity case studies from a range of public sector and not for profit organisations.
