Approach to learning and assessment

You will experience a range of teaching and learning approaches that are intended to develop and enhance your knowledge and skills, 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 also be required to demonstrate a range of verbal, written and internet based approaches of communication.

Assessment will be aligned to the course learning outcomes and program learning outcomes, and is designed to complement your learning experiences. Your knowledge and skills will be assessed through assessment tasks that may 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.

If you have a long term medical condition, disability and/or other form of disadvantage it may be possible to negotiate variations to aspects of the learning or assessment methods. You can contact the Program Manager or the Equitable Learning Service Unit (https://www.rmit.edu.au/students/support-and-facilities/student-support/equitable-learning-services) if you would like to find out more. 

If you have already developed areas of skill and knowledge included in this program (for example, through prior studies or work experience), you can apply for credit once you have enrolled in this program. There is information on the RMIT University website about how to apply for Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)http://www.rmit.edu.au/students/enrolment/credit/he.

Work integrated learning

RMIT is committed to providing you with an education that strongly links formal learning with workplace experience. 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 Work Integrated Learning (WIL) experience may be simulated.

The specific WIL courses in this program in this program are:

  • LANG1221 Ethics and Professional Issues and LANG1231 Extended Professional Project.

In LANG1221 Ethics and Professional Issues, part of your assessment will include a simulated job assignment, for which you will receive feedback against industry standards by a practising translator or interpreter.

In LANG1231 Extended Professional Project, you will undertake a real or simulated professional project, building direct industry engagement and receiving professional feedback on your project work.
