    Research output: Other contribution to conferencePresentation only

    Abstract

    This presentation involves a discussion of the processes to ensure course design that complies with and exceeds higher education standards. The Faculty of Business at Charles Sturt University has developed a course review process that can map, analyse and document course design to ensure that quality outcomes can be achieved that deliver the coherent and progressive requirements of the Higher Education Standards. The process has been developed by a number of people over a period of time and continues to evolve as it progresses. The course review follows a four stage process that guides teams through the standards required and inspires achievement of more than compliant quality. The analytical process provides information and feedback to course teams about the design and documentation of course learning outcomes for a whole of course perspective. Subject learning outcomes are assessed and evaluated for quality and alignment to the AQF. Assessment is designed and documented for a range of criteria, and subject information evidences quality design and delivery. The process requires the development of a range of specialised skills. These include knowledgeable analytical skills for discerning quality across multiple courses, a great understanding of higher education standards, a particular expertise in language analysis, and interpretive skills to communicate the information to others less experienced in course design.
