Teaching, Learning, and Assessment Strategy
The teaching and learning processes are conducted through creative lectures, which encompass creating real life projects (such as working on consultancy problems for real companies), practical demonstrations and workshops by industry experts, as well as field trips and public presentations. Assignments are in many cases produced by using write-ups, as well as audio tapes and self-produced videos, which will be posted to a variety of social media platforms. The program relies heavily on teamwork between students and often also other programs, requiring students to mimic real life work environments. Some of the assignments may be valued partially through peer assessment.
It is the responsibility of the lecturer of a particular course to facilitate all students’ learning on the course, which can be assisted by a tutor, if necessary. By having qualified lecturers and guest lecturers from the industries, the students will be able to gain knowledge from both sides, i.e. theoretical and practical frameworks, through in-depth analysis of communication studies, studio works, and individual/group work projects.
Learning will be an exciting experience for students as they are provided with excellent facilities, such as a state of the art auditorium, screening room and editing labs facilities. Students may also be able to collaborate with Binus TV, based in Anggrek campus, where they can receive extra training on editing and broadcasting, as well as create English speaking programs. With a good quality library, the students will be able to access books and films for references and research activity.
Much of the course-works are assessed through a variety of assessment tasks such as reports, presentations, assignments, examinations, individual and group projects, and the final thesis. The feedback of the given assessment is given in the class/tutorial, embedded in the scoring rubric/assessment criteria sheet and/or separate feedback forms. The complexity of course content in design problem-solving methods is introduced at different levels of study. Written thesis report must be submitted in Year 4 (semester 8).
