RMIT offers a variety of learning and teaching approaches, including lectures, seminars, workshops, presentations, group discussions and group work.
You will learn in workshops that are organised in clusters to streamline content delivery and assessment. The focus is on delivering key concepts and offering opportunities for interaction, discussion, peer support, guest speakers and hands-on activities.
You will undertake work related projects and tasks to develop practical skills and apply knowledge, demonstrating your abilities to function effectively in a supervisory role.
The subjects in this course are contextualised to industry applications wherever possible, demonstrations and practical sessions and/or workplace sessions are incorporated wherever appropriate in the delivery strategy. Classes are interactive and give you many opportunities to discuss ideas and practice new skills. You will participate in learning activities such as:
- leading and working in teams to ensure a successful outcome of a project
- identify areas for continuous improvement
- perform a risk analysis
- develop critical thinking skills
- develop your emotional intelligence
- communicate effectively with internal and external customers
- business resources management skills
- presentation of work to various stakeholders
In addition to developing skills and knowledge for a particular job, this diploma also aims to help you to develop broad work skills, known as foundation skills.
You are expected to undertake self-directed learning in addition to those activities provided in class. This self-directed learning will often be based upon research, and reading of relevant knowledge elements of the course. Where you have the opportunity to do so, you are encouraged to apply skill elements in your actual workplace.
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.
