A number of strategic projects are currently under development within the Pro Vice-Chancellor (Student Learning) portfolio.
In order to respond proactively to relevant current trends, drivers and risks, and to promote excellence in assessment as part of teaching excellence, a consultative review and strategic planning process for assessment at the University was undertaken in 2021. View details of the project and the final strategy document.
The University agreed to a number of revisions to the Graduate Attributes in August 2019, which included refinement of the existing attributes and introduction of two new attributes. In order to implement the revised graduate attributes, faculties are asked to review its curriculum and remap program learning outcomes and course learning outcomes to the revised graduate attributes.
Students develop their employability during their studies through gaining expertise in a chosen field and acquiring the skills, capabilities and personal attributes that they need to excel as graduates. The University of Adelaide’s Graduate Employability Framework defines the elements of employability development and provides tools for program level mapping across the student lifecycle.
The University is committed to working in genuine partnership with students to ensure the high quality and the continuous enhancement and innovation of our curriculum, learning and teaching, and wider student experience.
The University has strengthened its strategic focus on supporting student retention, culminating in the development of our first institutional level Student Retention and Success Plan 2019-2021, introduced in early 2019.
