LEARNING AND TEACHING METHODS
Key learning and teaching methods include:
Lectures and large-group discussion of core themes and concepts. These are delivered by a academic staff members. Lectures draw on real world case studies, key policy reference points and the introduction and description of basic analytical procedures or calculations. Lecturers employ multimedia, public speaking, and Socratic dialogue methods. Two hours of lectures are offered for each week of the academic program.
Engagement with required and suggested readings and information sources. Readings and information sources cover a mixture of policy documents, journal papers, online references and databases, government reports or guidelines, and other textual resources. Students are expected to undertake between 1-2 hours per week of reading and resource review to support concept acquisition and knowledge contextualisation, as well as to assist with execution of tutorial exercises, assignment work, and exam.
Tutorial and tutorial exercises in smaller-group format. This approach includes classic Q&A and calculation exercises. Tutors are primarily drawn from the specialist lecturers (from both academia and industry) tutoring in smaller groups, on specialised topics, with reference to the weekly tutorial exercises. Roughly one hour of tutorial time is available per week of the program.
