The Curriculum Development Program supports staff within the University to redesign and deliver subjects and courses to enhance learning experiences for students.
The curriculum development process includes:
- a Curriculum Design Intensive (CDI) workshop to explore the teaching and learning possibilities in your subject or course using active pedagogies, best practice assessment and feedback approaches, and digital technologies
- consultations to flexibly support you in the design and delivery of your subject or course
- an example subject outline in the LMS with professional development to assist you to create and manage the new LMS build of your subjects
- quality and standards review of the course and subject including mapping assessments to Intended Learning Outcomes, accreditation competencies, graduate capabilities and appropriate Australian Quality Framework (AQF) levels
- evaluation of the student experience to measure the success of your new subject design during and after delivery to continually improve the subject
- discipline-specific expertise from Senior Learning Advisors in the library
- teaching and learning forums for sharing success with colleagues by communicating your subject design.
