Approach to learning and assessment

The program uses lectures and tutorials in conjunction with projects, team activities and work integrated learning.

There are three distinctive approaches to learning and teaching:

  • Flexible learning strategies: a range of online and interactive learning and teaching strategies that allow you to question, discuss and self-direct your own learning are provided, including flipped classroom learning.
  • Action learning:small groups or teams will work together to complete an assigned project. Action learning will allow you to collect, analyse data and make decisions on a specific issue with your group that may simulate a workplace experience.
  • Projects (assignments): case study scenarios, specific problems, real world applications of theory in practice, business simulations and research will form the basis of projects. This will be an opportunity for you to research and analyse an issue and apply the knowledge and skills you have been developing.

Assessment throughout the program is an integral part of your learning experience. Feedback from assessment will give you the opportunity to reflect upon your capabilities and identify opportunities for further learning.

The details of assessment in each course are listed within the Course Guides. Assessment will include:

  • Assignments
  • Projects
  • Presentations

As part of final assessment students may present to external industry panels who provide formative feedback.
