How we got here

During the latest Directions consultation phase from July to September, you shared your valuable input on six Directions through online and leader-led discussions, workshops, forums and written submissions. 

We heard from our community in RMIT  Melbourne, Europe, Vietnam and all across the globe, including students, staff, academics, researchers, alumni and industry partners on the ambitions, priorities and values that RMIT should pursue as we journey towards 2022 and beyond.

Community Insights: Direction 3

The RMIT NEXT conversation has been led and shaped together through our global network and has explored opportunities that emerged from this incredibly challenging period for the future.

Here are the key insights from your community input:

World Class technology to support applied education and experiences

RMIT learning will be supported by unique applied technologies including VR and AR tools that can simulate real-world experiences. RMIT’s application ​of technology will be purposeful and integrated, not just a selling point.

Create flexibility to enhance work, learning and life

Experiences will be seamless across our hybrid environments, supported by a collaborative work model that enables RMIT people to do their best work without burnout, whilst maximising efficient use of space.

Community Insights: Hybrid  Edited by Brittany Mitchell (Dip. RMIT Digital Communication and Media)

Collaborative, co-locational campus and precinct design​

RMIT campuses will be designed for community connection, amplifying opportunities for social exchange, interaction and collaboration across our student, research and industry networks, ​to build community, deepen academic enquiry and solve complex challenges.

Big data for personalised learning

RMIT will invest in structured data, digital infrastructure, and AI to support insights-driven learning and personalised experiences.
