This course examines contemporary research on learning designs and assessment in tertiary teaching, and explores current research and practices on the design and facilitation of face-to-face, blended, and online environments which enhance student success. Modelling co-design and design thinking approaches, the course aims to help you rethink how you can move to more flexible and inclusive course design and assessment.

In this course, we will bring in both scholarly and practitioner literature to help us think through how we can best design our courses, learning environments, and assessments to support and enhance student learning in tertiary education.


Subject to approval of the Head of School.
