Learning and teaching methods
Designed with working professionals in mind, your live online classes and on-campus workshops are all held in the evenings. Live online classes are all recorded so you can view them later.
You will benefit from small cohort sizes with hands-on teachers readily available to answer questions and offer support.
Our on-campus workshops provide opportunities for collaborative work, allowing you to interact with your peers and facilitators alike. They are conducted in our purpose-built Practice Firm rooms and provide a great environment for learning to use industry-specific software and practicing your client interactions and other role plays.
Your live online classes and face-to-face workshops will be supported by carefully curated pre-class and post-class online activities, as well as self-directed research, online collaboration with peers, and engagement with a range of industry guests.
As a student in this advanced diploma, you will be assessed on structured activities that allow you to learn, apply and demonstrate vocational competency.
The assessment for this advanced diploma is designed to simulate the workplace, allowing you to demonstrate your skills and knowledge using authentic tasks.
Assessment may take the form of verbal or written questions, multimedia presentations (individually or in groups), live demonstrations, portfolios, case studies, simulated projects, role-play activities, supervised and timed tasks, according to the requirements of each unit.
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.
