Why is it Important to Publish Courses On Time?

To scaffold student performance and improve their experience in courses, course coordinators are asked to take an intentional, thoughtful approach to instructional design, development, and on time publishing in MyUni. This will provide the students with the early opportunity to learn about course syllabus, course materials, learning outcomes, learning activities, and more importantly, engage more effectively with their instructors and peers.



Creating Student Groups Using Demographic, Enrolment and Educational Data

It’s well documented that students derive great benefits from working in groups. From increased individual achievement to enhanced communication and professional development skills, students with experience of Group Learning are likely to find themselves better equipped for whatever path they choose after graduation.

As we come to the end of 2020 and begin to prepare courses for 2021, it might be time to try something new in your online delivery, particularly for courses that are being delivered in the Remote and Dual teaching modes. An incredibly useful teaching technique is to provide them with demonstrations, modeling for students the process of completing a task and the skills and techniques involved.
