Teaching and Learning

At ICMS we are dedicated to your education. Our seven principles of learning underpin the design, development and delivery of our curriculum to enhance the student learning experience. These principles are our promise to: encourage contact between students and faculty; develop cooperation among students; encourage active learning; give prompt feedback to help students improve and develop their understanding; emphasise time on task and effective time management; communicate high expectations; and respect diverse talents and ways of learning. These principles are our commitment to getting the best from you.
