Context and drivers
Context and drivers

  • Curriculum design and delivery

  • Pedagogies of distance learning

  • Staff development

  • Business models/ USP


New Approaches to Teaching, Learning and Assessment needed?

  • Drivers towards teamwork, critical thinking, effective communication, problem-solving, collaboration:

    • “21st Century skills” in K-12 schools

    • “Graduate Attributes” in universities

    • The “inverted (flip) classroom”

Academics claim that their courses produce these skills, yet the evidence is unclear. What does assessment say about priorities in a course?
