Approach to learning and assessment

The approaches used in each course will be appropriate to the learning outcomes they are designed to develop. The major styles of teaching, learning and assessment you will experience throughout your program will include:

Online learning:  The online program provides real-time and asynchronous engagement and self-directed study. Innovative content using video, audio, simulation and practical exercises presented to suit all learners and to keep the experience engaging and dynamic. Communication tools are used for discussion and collaborative work.

Problem-Based Learning: Problem-based learning engages you in analytical thinking, research and provision of solutions

Cooperative learning: Enables you to work in collaborative or team-based tasks

Assignments and projects: These may be either research or problem based, and may be undertaken in teams or individually. They will provide you with experience undertaking research and writing effectively to present your findings and recommendations to a range of audiences.

Formal examinations: Will provide you with the opportunity to demonstrate your understanding and application of principles to either practical or theoretical issues.

Assessment
Depending on courses selected, student progress is assessed by a combination of group and individual assignments and examination.The assessment you must complete is designed to provide you with opportunities to demonstrate the extent to which you have developed your capabilities and achieved specific learning outcomes in a given area. Methods of assessment will also vary with the learning outcomes and core capabilities of the relevant course but may include case studies, research projects and reports.

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 Disability Liaison Unit if you would like to find out more: www.rmit.edu.au/disability
