Learning & Teaching

In 2015 AFTRS is implementing its new Degree program including the Bachelor of Arts (Screen) (BA(S)), as well as a new Specialist Program comprised of  Introductory, Diploma and Advanced Diploma courses. Students in the part-time Graduate Diploma in Screen Business and the Master of Screen Arts and Business are completing their final year.

The new education program has defined new graduate attributes for its BA(S) and Master courses.  They reflect the ambitions of the BA(S) program and the dynamic and challenging screen sector students will graduate into. The Graduate Attributes are cultural awareness, critical thinking, ethical practice, creativity, entrepreneurship, collaboration, global citizenship and deep knowledge in screen arts. Equally the Specialist Program graduate attributes are effective communication; collaborative skills industry relevant knowledge and skills; knowledge and applications of relevant technical skills.                    

In order to support the new education program the four broad areas have been articulated in the 2015 AFTRS Learning and Teaching Plan. They are:

1)      Student Experience

2)      Reflective Teaching

3)      Curriculum Development & Evaluation

4)      Continual Improvement


The AFTRS Learning and Teaching Plan will be reviewed at the end of 2015 as part of the evaluation of the new program.
