Overview

Overview

ECU is committed to providing learning-centred, globally relevant, and transformative curriculum that meets the needs of all students, regardless of location or mode of learning.

Curriculum design involves intentionally designing high quality learning, teaching and assessment to guide a student to successfully complete a course or unit. At ECU, we take a whole-of-institution approach to ensure courses and units are designed to foster globally-oriented and socially just citizens who have the skills for life-long learning.

For more information about curriculum design at ECU, please review the Curriculum Design Policy and associated Curriculum Design Procedure.

Course Learning Outcomes

Our focus is for courses to be clearly and explicitly mapped throughout each course to ensure that students’ recognition of their learning and academic and professional development is supported throughout their course.

Assessment and Feedback

Assessment is about gathering and interpreting evidence of student learning in relation to intended learning outcomes. Effective assessment begins with clear goals.

Benchmarking

Benchmarking is a tool for improving performance by comparing the University's performance or standards, or both, with those of its peers.

Employability

Through an integrated learning experience, we strive to help students make, understand, and articulate connections between learning, life-wide experiences, and work.
