Course review an opportunity for innovation: Creating enduring degrees for the future

Research output: Other contribution to conferencePresentation onlypeer-review


In Australia there is an increasing pressure from industry for university graduates to “hit the ground running”. The transition from study to workforce is a critical process and one that is made more challenging in the online teaching space. How can education providers ensure that their graduates endure when entering working life? University core business is about critical thinking, knowledge- and skills development as well as the successful application of gained knowledge. In order to maintain currency it is essential that these areas are informed by industry. In this presentation the authors will share their experience of a course review process that utilised strategies derived from Indigenous pedagogy, utilising narratives in the curriculum to provide a framework for connecting subjects and filter knowledge to form a professional perspective. Knowledge that is informed by principles of Indigenous and cultural competence, social justice, human rights, sustainability, ethical practice and lifelong learning. It will also consider the delicate balance of maintaining educational integrity with the demands from industry.
