Teaching and Learning
Making a Difference
In our Teaching and Learning, we seek to make a difference through:
- The pursuit of knowledge for its own sake, sought with the highest level of ethical integrity and academic honesty
- Preparing our students for global citizenship and lifelong learning through research-led and student-centred teaching and learning
Committed to creating, ensuring and promoting an unmatched learning environment, our teaching stimulates the imagination, curiosity and excitement of our students.
Promoting student-centred learning we encourage our students to be active collaborators, testing their ideas with both teachers and fellow students. We expect our students to be active risk-takers, continuously contesting ideas and questioning conventional wisdom.
Our courses and degree programs cater for our students' different learning styles, offering flexibility for both individual and group study.
Professional Careers and Graduate Attributes
Graduate Attributes are a broad range of knowledge, skills and attitudes reflective of community needs, valued by employers and required by students to guide their future professional career or improve professional progression and sustainability of present careers. Attributes comprise of employability skills, personal characteristics, and professional skills and knowledge which inform our program and course design, delivery and assessment.
We prepare our graduates for entry into the Business and Law professions. Students construct a strong disciplinary knowledge and skill base, blended with generic skills and personal attributes enabling them to confidently and successfully enter their profession of choice and facilitate their committed engagement within the local and global community. The faculty has contextualised their attributes applying expectations of the business and legal professions.
We expect all our students to develop competencies which demonstrate:
- Personal and Professional Integrity:
Engaging with consistent actions, principles, and values, graduates will be able to manage change and meet new professional challenges in an independent and sustainable manner.
- Applied Knowledge and Skill Base:
Through the acquisition of an in-depth specialised knowledge and skill base informed by theory, techniques, tools and models, graduates will be capable of practical application in global professional environments.
- Social and Global Perspectives:
Consistent with their role as members of local, national and international communities, graduates will develop proactive value sets which direct personal and professional practice.
- Communication and Interaction
Experiencing developmental complexity in communication and interaction will enable graduates to demonstrate skills which develop relationships, work across differences, and manage conflict.
- Leadership and Teamwork
Actively participating in collaborative work processes and projects, graduates will be able to demonstrate high order skills in leadership and team work.
- Inquiry and Innovation
Engaging in inquiry, research, critical thinking and problem solving graduates will demonstrate the ability to develop effective and innovative solutions to both current and future problems.
Career advice and options for students can be accessed on the Careers website.
Academic Honesty and Ethical Behaviour
We require our students and staff to uphold the highest levels of academic honesty during their studies and to display high ethical standards during their life at work.
We prepare our students for global citizenship and encourage our students to 'make a difference' in their professional lives, both in Australia and internationally. Our curriculum is international in focus and challenges our students to understand and question the global economy and society of which they are part. We expect our students to form views about the socio-legal-business institutions in Australia and the Asia-Pacific Region and to critically question the operation of those institutions.
We celebrate our diversity, which is reflected in students and staff from different countries, cultures, ethnicities, value systems, ages, life experiences and socio-economic status. By valuing the diversity of our students, we create a unique and distinctive learning environment. Our commitment is evident in the adoption of The Cultural Diversity and Inclusive Practice (CDIP) Toolkit.
