TEACHING + ASSESSMENT
It’s our mission to prepare you for the future, to give you hands-on practical and technical knowledge that reflects the way they do it in the industry and develops alongside it as technology changes; to invest in you the critical reasoning and mental smarts to deal with every situation.
Our uniquely balanced teaching and assessment methods combine face-to face classroom sessions and practical studio time that deliver savvy business and tech skills as well as real-life experience. It’s important to attend and participate in both to ensure you pass each subject and get the most out of your time at JMC.
Teaching and learning is based on the shared obligation to present content information and practical skills, and to then assess student achievement in a timely manner within each semester. It is the responsibility of all students to submit assignments and deliver project work, participate in presentations and sit exams by the due dates.
Assessments include exams, interviews, production projects, assignments and/or practical exercises. All units (modules) are graded. At the beginning of each unit of study you will be given a Unit Overview, which describes what you will cover during the module and the assessment tasks that need to be completed. You will also be given an assessment brief detailing the context, assessment task, submission requirements, assessment criteria and reference material.
Students may also have the opportunity to participate in Performance Showcases that are held regularly throughout the year.
TEXTBOOKS AND EQUIPMENT
Students will be given a text list prior to commencement. You are required to purchase some of the books and/or equipment on the list, others will be highly recommended.
