This unit examines important principles of curriculum design in higher education, including the development of discipline-specific learning outcomes that are appropriate for the level of the course, intended audience and relevant professional standards. A broad range of teaching, learning and assessment strategies are presented through contemporary case studies which also examine how these approaches are aligned with the intended curriculum. Participants are asked to design a curriculum for their own higher education context which demonstrates appropriate alignment between intended learning outcomes and the teaching, learning and assessment program. Specific attention is given to the use of technology-mediated and located teaching strategies that promote active, equitable and personally engaging learning experiences for students from diverse backgrounds. Participants critique their own programs and also provide peer feedback to colleagues enrolled in the unit.
