Students will engage with local Aboriginal community members and gain an understanding of the oldest teaching methods in the world. This is supported by an opportunity to complete a Scar Tree Walk to a sacred Women's site on campus as well as contributing to the school's possum skin cloak.
During your studies you’ll develop a professional digital portfolio to demonstrate your understandings of learning and teaching in the 21st century.
Small classes enable personalised learning methods from caring staff, and excellent employment outcomes. You'll also benefit from a clear structure, excellent industry connections, and networking opportunities with alumni to further your professional learning.
Ongoing assessment throughout the semester includes examinations, essays, reports, presentations, group projects, research projects and practical assignments.
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.
