RMIT offers a variety of learning and teaching approaches including lectures, seminars, workshops, presentations, group discussions and syndicate work.
You will have access to online and digital resources through various student systems, including Canvas, the University’s Learning Management System.
Ongoing assessment throughout the semester may include tests, essays, reports, oral classes, presentations, group projects, research projects, laboratory projects, practical assignments and exams.
Classes are taught by experts in their fields. There is a strong emphasis on laboratory work and professional engineering projects to put theory into practice and to enhance research, teamwork, leadership, communication and project management skills. Note that tutorials and laboratory sessions may run in the afternoon to fit in with the work commitments of part-time students.
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.
