On-campus dates: 16-17 November and 14 December
Venue: L131, Launceston

This unit supports you in developing your understanding of contemporary innovation and leadership theories and practices in higher education. The focus is on enabling you to refine and apply your understanding in a professional environment, with due consideration of the needs of your teaching and research discipline, institution, colleagues and students. This unit culminates in the creation of a learning and teaching 'innovation and leadership' white paper, which elucidates opportunities for future change and organisational unit development.

Completion of ELT501 is a pre-requisite. Attendance at all face-to-face days is compulsory and places are limited.

ELT507 – Curriculum and Assessment Design in Higher Education

Venue: Sandy Bay Physics 218, Launceston A001

This unit is for experienced university teachers who wish to develop and advance their understanding of design, review and evaluation of curriculum and assessment across designed programs of study (typically a degree program or major).

From a course-wide and course-long perspective you will explore the theories, principles and practice of curriculum design as well as the many internal and external requirements that influence current approaches to shaping programs that produce job-ready graduates.  Principle foci will be the Higher Education Standards as they relate to curriculum and assessment, the Australian Qualifications Framework, the Blended Learning Model, the UTAS Quality Cycle and periodic Course Reviews. You will critically review curriculum philosophies, course-level learning outcomes, current curriculum mapping tools as well as the data that is available for decision support.

This unit may be taken as an alternative entry point to Bachelor of Education with Professional Honours (Higher Education) for experienced university teachers who qualify for credit for ELT501.
