Abstract

Teaching and learning strategies are changing as the contemporary view of effective education is to prepare students for assimilation into professional practice. Within the School of Communication at Charles Sturt University the distance between the classroom and the professional community is closing. At Kajulu Communications, the on-campus student advertising agency of Charles Sturt University, students must apply best industry practice to a range of authentic situations. This paper examines the 360 degree or "Orbital" model of authentic assessment tasks within Kajulu; peer, lecturer and client assessment, and draws on an actual case study to support the notion of authentic assessment within an industry-professional teaching and learning environment.
