This graduate diploma uses a variety of contemporary learning and teaching approaches which may include studio practice, lectures, tutorials, workshops, seminars, problem-based learning, reflective techniques, online and face-to-face presentations and discussions, group-based learning and negotiated learning for your major project.
A major component of this diploma is studio practice. You will be immersed into the field, its methods and practices through set projects and briefs. The studio format gives you the opportunity to explore concepts, techniques and modes of communication through the creation of animated linear or interactive productions. There also may be the opportunity to engage with students from other studios in a setting that encourages peer-to-peer learning through shared experience.
Learning at RMIT
The types of classes you have will depend on the course you’re studying. Classes are offered in various formats designed to provide meaningful engagement with staff, industry and peers and provide for access and use of spaces where learning can be applied and active, including an array of specialised equipment.
Most RMIT courses do not include passive large-scale classes such as lectures, instead the content traditionally provided in lectures is made available online. This may be in the form of readings, videos or other on-demand learning materials. This content will also support the basis of interactive learning that takes place in on-campus classes.
