RMIT University Library - Learning Lab

Educators' guide


The Learning Lab is where students can learn and apply foundational skills needed to succeed in tertiary education. Material on the Learning Lab is designed to promote active learning, each section includes activities so that students may apply their knowledge to tasks.

While the Learning Lab does not replace curriculum, it can complement courses by providing short tutorials and pages where students can gain confidence in areas of assumed knowledge.

The Learning Lab is separated into sections accessible by the tiles on the front page. There are also keywords on each page that can be used to navigate content. A complete keyword list can be found here.

The Learning Lab is in ongoing development, we document new pages and content, be sure to bookmark or check back regularly to see what’s new and updated.
