Studying at ICHM Adelaide
The teaching facilities at ICHM are world class. It really is an exciting environment in which to learn. ICHM provides all the benefits of a larger college or university environment and atmosphere by sharing its campus with the Regency campus of TAFE SA.
ICHM employs a seminar model of delivery of its courses. Group sizes vary each year of study; with operational, ser-vice and computer-based subjects taught in small groups. Students are expected to participate fully by contributing to discussions and debate to assist them in forming their own opinions.
During their on campus semesters ICHM students will use a number of academic and operational learning areas includ- ing: lecture theatres, seminar rooms, a purpose built wine laboratory, 120 seat a-la-carte restaurant open to the public; function facilities, computer suite, on campus library, prac- tice bar and restaurant areas, and a fully equipped industri- al kitchen. It really is an exciting study environment.
Methods of assessment
Some subjects have exams, but these are rarely the only form of assessment. Assessment methods can include practical tests, group work, essays, personal portfolios, presentations, log books, written assessments and case studies. Each subject and WIL placement has assessments spread across the academic semesters, with student work- loads a major consideration in the timing of assessments.
