You will experience a variety of teaching and learning approaches during the course including lectures, tutorials, working independently and in teams where you will benefit from the additional insights and understandings that come from interaction with classmates.
Lectures deliver a comprehensive review of the latest thinking and world's best practice, while tutorials provide opportunities for facilitated discussion. In addition, you will have access to online and digital resources such as lecture notes, assessment tools, discussion boards and podcasts.
Your classes will mostly be held at the Emily McPherson College Building, a magnificent heritage property on the corner of Russell and Victoria streets. Facilities include a student lounge, conference suite, teaching theatres and classrooms with the latest multimedia technology, and a rooftop patio with views of Melbourne’s CBD. Some classes may be held at the Swanston Academic Building or at other locations on RMIT’s City campus.
Assessment is ongoing throughout the semester and includes examinations, essays, reports, presentations, group projects, research projects and practical assignments. While group assignments are an important component of every course, the focus of the assessment is weighted towards individual performance.
Blended learning options
Courses offered as part of blended learning programs include a meaningful blend of online, on-campus, and workplace based learning tailored to the type of study you undertake. This learning is active, prioritising tasks that involve exploration and development of skills and knowledge through interaction and engagement.
Online aspects provide positive benefits such as flexibility and adaptability using digital activities and materials, while also strengthening the interaction and connection with timetabled and on-campus experiences such as tutorials, practicals, or workshops.
