The Course Design Process defines the procedures for course teams working on review, design and development.
The components of the course design process consist include:
The process aligns the principles for quality course design with the first element of the Curriculum, Learning and Teaching Framework.
Degrees designed for graduate outcomes
Course Design Process
Design Phase 1
CSU Courses are aligned to standards and industry expectations.
Course Learning Outcomes
Achievement of the Course Learning Outcomes is defined as tangible evidence of learning which is then used to develop assessment tasks.
Design Phase 2
Assessment demonstrates achievement of professional standards and graduate learning outcomes.
Assessment is authentic to graduate practice.
Learning is scaffolded and there is a broad range of assessment styles across the course.
Assessment tasks are authentic, criterion-referenced and standards-based (CRSB). They have clearly defined assessment criteria and performance standards that make explicit to students what they need to achieve in order to receive a passing grade.
Design constructively aligned subjects that meet the needs of students and are deliverable in online mode.
Design Phase 3
Learning activities are online, flexible and practice-based.
Feedback from learners and practice community is actively sought and actioned.
Create activities and resources that utilise the learning and teaching strategies to achieve the Course Learning Outcomes.
The course design process is informed through regular feedback from all relevant stakeholders at specific points in the design process, especially students.
