Lawson, R. (2015) Designing learning to support a whole of degree experience: A workshop to explore supporting transition, retention and success through collaborative curriculum design. In: Students Transitions Achievement Retention Success (STARS) Conference 2015: Workshop 1, 2 - 5 July 2015, Stamford Grand, Adelaide.

Abstract

Curriculum design is multifaceted, trying to meet a range of expectations for the students, universities, industries, professions and regulatory bodies. In order for it to be truly effective the curriculum has to be designed in a holistic manner that provides scaffolding throughout the degree to engage students with learning using integration and sequencing of knowledge, skills and their application (Kift, 2009). This workshop examines how curriculum design impacts on student learning with particular focus on how it can be developed to support transition; retention and student success. Participants will be provided opportunities to share good practice as well as explore new ideas for curriculum design.
