Course format and assessment
VC’s courses use a mix of guest seminars from leading academics and professionals, and student-run activities. Students commonly remark that the best part of VC’s courses are the students from different disciplines, and so most VC courses have a group-work component too. The major assessment item is a learning portfolio. You can see examples of these assessment items on the example work page.
Information about Wicked Problems, Ignorance!, Group Research & Innovation Project and Innovation Internship will be available shortly.
The VC’s courses are open to students from all disciplines at ANU. You can fit a VC’s course into your degree plan in a number of ways.
