Details of Learning Activities
Students will study manage project concepts in the workshop sessions and online (Blackboard discussion) engagement, prescribed exercises and assessment work. These concepts will also be explored through the investigation of appropriate real world and simulated environments.
The teaching schedule is determined after negotiation with the industry partner and the individual student. Generally workshops will be offered on a monthly basis during the academic year. Each workshop will be linked to a unit of competency. Attendance to each workshop will be based on the student’s individual learning plan.
Learning resources such as unit reading, unit references will be provided to all students via their program folders and also placed within the blackboard site as required.
Overview of Assessment
Assessment in this unit will be through a mix of in-class tasks, workplace based projects, responses to a range of underpinning knowledge questions and the development of an evidence portfolio linked to the unit elements and workplace practice. An upfront assessment to develop an individual learning plan will occur. An individual assessment appointment will be undertaken once per year with each student to allow students to present and discuss workplace evidence.
A student must demonstrate an understanding of all elements of this particular competency and assessment tasks are based on the requirements of the essential aspects of evidence as outlined in the unit of competency: BSBPMG510A Manage projects.
Assessment methods have been designed to measure achievement of each competency in a flexible manner over a range of assessment tasks.
A workplace assessment appointment will be undertaken to allow students to present and discuss workplace evidence: Based on the individual student’s knowledge, skills and experience: an individual learning plan will be negotiated and developed.
Assessment may incorporate a variety of methods including responses to task questions, in class activities, case studies, and the development of project work in consultation with the Course Coordinator ( assessor) and the student’s workplace.
Student will also be asked to complete an evidence portfolio documenting workplace practise as linked to the unit of competency. Students are advised that they are likely to be asked to personally demonstrate their assessment work to their Course Coordinator to ensure that the relevant competency standards are being met.
A combination of assessment activities based on each individual student’s learning plans may be developed as required.
Assessments will be based on the level of the individual student’s knowledge, skills and experience as ascertained at a workplace meeting where workplace evidence is discussed and presented.
At completion of the course an evidence portfolio will validate competence with the assessment task activities’ completed for any competency gaps.
