Curriculum Development

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.

Benefits for you and your students
