Modules 1 & 2
THE AUSTRALIAN EDUCATION SYSTEM
Students will learn how an Australian education experience is designed to protect them and ensure the quality of their education. Here we introduce them to the AQF, provide an overview of how Australian education is internationally recognised by employers, common student visa conditions, and the concept of time management skills.
This module provides an overview of some key elements of an Australian education. Students will learn about what will be expected of them, covering classroom participation, written assignments, and presentations. They will also learn about academic integrity, the importance of avoiding plagiarism, and the principles of referencing and citations. Finally, your students will learn the importance of reaching out when they need help, and we provide tips, suggestions and helpful links to support their decision to study in Australia.
Modules 3 & 4
METHODS OF TEACHING + LEARNING
Here we cover various aspects of teaching and learning in an Australian education institution. Your students will learn the key features of, and differences between, learning independently and group work. An Australian education will likely be a less formal environment, but also require your students to exercise skills in critical thinking and analysis. We will also cover elements of managing responses to authority, learning in the classroom, in an online environment, and in the workplace.
Whether your students are studying an Australian qualification in another country, or they will be moving to Australia, they will face challenges, and encounter many unfamiliar situations. All the units in this module will help your students to create the physical environment and support systems, as well as develop the personal mindsets, to maximise their entire Australian experience. We also cover how to ensure they have ‘work-life balance’; developing an appropriate balance between their studies, their work commitments, and a healthy lifestyle.
At the end of the course, students work through a course checklist, ensuring that they have passed all quizzes, and then proceed to download their course certificate. We provide instructions on how to load their certificate and our LinkedIn microcredential to their LinkedIn profile, signalling to employers that they are job-ready.
