Curriculum themes, principles and practices
Curriculum Transformation @UOW is a comprehensive approach that optimises the curriculum as a structure for student learning and experience rather than as simply an organising framework for disciplinary knowledge. It focuses on what we teach, how we teach, how we assess learning and how we support students to maximise success. It transforms student learning and graduate outcomes, teaching practices and educational leadership.
These themes are underpinned by a set of design principles:
- Transition - enabling a smooth, supported shift into higher education and a successful transition to the world of work and lifelong learning;
- Synthesis - providing multiple, connected and sequenced opportunities for students to share, synthesise and integrate their learning;
- Broadening - encouraging a breadth of focus for learning beyond the student's primary area of study and recognising the interconnected nature of today’s global challenges and the value multi-disciplinary teams bring to the modern workplace.
