Enhancing the student experience, delivering educational outcomes and producing work-ready graduates are at the forefront of RMIT's learning and teaching activities.
We know that provision of quality education extends beyond just having a teacher in the classroom. Our learning environments are created through a range of best practice technological and physical innovations and by equipping our dedicated and experienced staff with ongoing access to support and professional development.
Innovative and sustainable curriculum design
Skilled curriculum design teams work collaboratively to ensure that our programs meet student and industry needs, incorporate relevant and innovative technologies and can be delivered flexibly over multiple locations and channels. Our curriculum design teams also incorporate RMIT’s sustainability policy which aims to embed sustainability principles and practices throughout learning and teaching, research and operational activities. Being ‘work-ready’ is an important RMIT graduate attribute, and our programs embed career skills into the curriculum to enhance the employability of our graduates.
Integration of educational technologies
As a university of technology, RMIT demonstrates leadership in the integration of educational technologies designed to foster active student learning and engagement. Our systems provide students access to interactive learning environments that encourage exploration, problem solving, reflection, collaboration and self-managed learning for domestic and international students.
Investment in state-of-the-art learning spaces
RMIT has invested significant resources into developing state-of-the-art learning spaces. The new Swanston Academic Building and Design Hub are two examples demonstrating our commitment to creating sustainable and responsive learning spaces. Future projects include the New Academic Street at the City campus and laboratory upgrades at Bundoora campus.
Creating learning opportunity
We have a solid reputation for providing students with experiential learning opportunities. Our strong linkages to industry enable local and international flexible and appropriate work placements. These placements may be provided online via specifically tailored programs.
Inclusive teaching principles
Students come from all walks of life. Our inclusive teaching principles provide a framework for teachers to achieve maximum inclusion for all learners. The principles help teachers identify potential barriers that may impact on how an individual engages with their studies, and ensure that all students are granted the same opportunity to learn.
Regular quality assurance reviews are carried out across all vocational, higher education and research programs. Feedback obtained from these formal reviews enables us to shape programs and ensure their ongoing relevance to real-world demands.
Support of teaching and academic staff
Our recruitment strategies ensure we have the right staff teaching into the right programs. Ongoing professional development opportunities allow staff to stay up to date with best practice teaching approaches. Learning and teaching achievements are celebrated through recognition and reward programs.
