Teaching and learning
Deakin plans to bring the opportunities of the digital age into the real world through Learning, Ideas, Value and Experience (LIVE). Our courses are rigorously evaluated to ensure we offer both students and teachers the best possible experience with us.
Graduate learning outcomes
Deakin promises to educate learners for the jobs and skills of the future with courses that are highly personal, engaging and include relevant learning experiences.
Deakin's curriculum framework
Deakin's courses are structured to get the best out of students and staff. We structure our teaching and learning to align with graduate learning outcomes. We do this by monitoring and updating courses to always align with industry insight.
Students can access study and administrative tools through DeakinSync, and study all or part of their course through Deakin's Cloud Campus.
The Deakin Promise in learning, through LIVE the future, is to offer brilliant education where the students are and where they want to go.
DEPUTY VICE-CHANCELLOR EDUCATION
Deakin Hallmarks are awards that recognise students' outstanding achievement and reflect upon their employability. The awards have been developed between faculties and employers so that they signify outstanding achievement as valued and judged in professional life.
Assessing and evaluating
Assessing and evaluating is an ongoing practice within subject and program design at Deakin.
Student assessment is related to the real world, and provides evidence of learning achievement. Through the evaluation of teaching, along with support and unit resources, we seek to improve learning and teaching outcomes.
TeachAssist supports strategic innovation projects to enhance capacity and pilot new approaches to digital learning. The TeachAssist team have been integral to Deakin degrees at FutureLearn, new approaches to self and peer assessment, Me in a Minute student video profiles, and the development of better educational blogging tools.
TeachAssist maintain a central resource site for staff that includes guides on developing digital learning resources, assessment and feedback design, using collaborative tools and leading courses.
The Centre for Research in Assessment and Digital Learning (CRADLE) investigates how we can best assess higher education learning outcomes in an era of rapid digital change.
