Learning and teaching
The majority of your learning in this certificate will take place in the classroom, in addition to some supervised self-directed learning. Your classes will ensure that your learning is contextualised to industry applications wherever possible, and that demonstrations and practical sessions will be incorporated wherever possible.
Your classes will be interactive and will give you ample opportunity to discuss ideas or put your learning into practice. In addition to this, you'll also have access to online resources and support, hear from guest speakers for insight into current industry practices, join your peers and develop your network through online learning.
You will also complete 80 hours of industry placement activities, allowing you to practice what you've studied in a real-world context.
Assessment in this certificate has been designed to simulate industry practice, and requires you to demonstrate the practical application of the skills learned through your study. Assessment types may vary according to the subject, and will generally include research projects, presentations and observations, practical demonstrations, case studies, and written reflections.
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.
