When you study with us, you learn from academic staff who are recognised leaders in the fields of primary teaching and learning development across all disciplines.
Our course intake is kept small to ensure your teachers can provide you with a personalised learning experience based on your unique needs and interests. You will experience a variety of contemporary, interactive learning and teaching approaches, including face-to-face and online delivery modes, interactive seminars, school-based experiences, and reflective techniques. You won't attend lectures; all your classes will be in the form of small group learning environments and workshops, giving you hands-on and inclusive experience from day one.
Most of the subjects in this degree are offered on-campus during the day through the two semester teaching periods, with some options for flexible and intensive subjects offered in Spring and Summer semesters.
In order to be a lifelong learner, you must be able to evaluate your own practice. Your teachers will provide feedback related to how you work with curriculum, learners and colleagues as a pre-service school teacher so you can graduate classroom ready.
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.
