This webinar follows on from the introductory webinar in the higher edcuation series called “Thinking of becoming a higher education provider – the important issues to consider”.

In this webinar the processes that guide higher edcuation course development and design are explored within the context of the Higher Education Standards Framework.

A typical process for development and approval of higher edcuation courses is proposed as well as a methodology for reviewing approved courses.

A clearer understanding of the the process for developing, approving and reviewing courses should allow participants to accredit and re-accredit their curriculum within a quality framework.

Learning Outcomes
  • Clearly document course development, approval and review processes in a non self-accrediting higher education provider;
  • Appreciate the importance of the role of a Course Advisory Committee in course development, approval and review of courses;
  • Appreciate the important contribution of external review in the development of new courses and the reviewing existing courses.
