2:30 PM CASE STUDY: Designing Flexible Humanities Courses for the Future at the University of Canberra
In 2013 the University of Canberra launched the Bachelor of Web Design and Production, which was designed as a fully flexible course that could be studied online, on-campus, or a mix of both. More recently, they have been developing a Bachelor of Arts program which will incorporate five degree programs, as part of a significant course renewal project at the university. In this session Sam will outline:
- Lessons learned from the Bachelor of Web Design and Production
- Application of these lessons in designing a new Bachelor of Arts model
- Considerations in balancing the time costs of flexible course delivery against demand for flexibility while continuing to manage student engagement and participation.
