Combined CoCo-CHAI-LATTE Seminar
28 March 2012
Modelling of long-term intended learning in university curricula and the potential role of computer systems in improving the quality of university curriculum information.Clearly identifying what students are expected to learn is a fundamental principle of good teaching but one that has been hard to satisfy consistently in university teaching programs. Efforts at developing more consistent and informative descriptions of program-level intended learning outcomes have intensified in recent years, in the Australian university sector as well as overseas, but without much appreciation so far of the particular complexity of the program level as opposed to that of smaller scale learning events.
This session will discuss work on program-level learning description models using the CUSP curriculum information management system (now used at three university faculties) and the recently developed ProGoSs program goal analysis software. The discussion, led by Dr Tim Lever and Richard Gluga, will illustrate some of the potential contributions of computer-based systems to more effective modelling of program-level learning outcomes while at the same time providing a broad introduction to key issues and requirements involved.
