  1. Strategic overview of education Joan Beaumont 22 June 2010

  2. Draft Education Plan • Education in a research intensive university: the implications for CASS. • National leadership • Quality • Educational innovation • Access and equity • Postgraduate coursework • Research training • Internationalization

  3. 1. CASS & research intensive University

  4. 2. National leadership

  5. 3. Quality

  6. 4. Educational innovation

  7. 5. Access & Equity

  8. 6.Graduate coursework

  9. CASS PGC targets

  10. PGC targets • What will each School contribute to the College target? • A target for each program, national and international. • What new programs can we offer? • What can we offer fully in flexible mode? • How do we staff growth in PGC?

  11. 7. Research training

  12. HDR targets

  13. HDR issues • How do we attract new students? Australian? International? From which countries? For which disciplines? • How do we find more scholarships? • How do we find supervisors? Space?

  14. 8. Internationalization

  15. Working Party: program rules • There will be a common length across all Colleges of the major sequence of 48 units (normally 8 courses @ 6 units each). • There will be a common length across all Colleges of a minor sequence of 24 units (normally 4 courses @ 6 units each), should Colleges wish to offer defined minor sequences. • All programs should allow 60 units of study (normally 10 courses @ 6 units each) at first-level given that pre-requisites at second level may inhibit students’ exploring new disciplines. • In all three- and four-year programs students will have the option of studying a minimum of 48 units as electives. These electives may be taken from the College/s offering the program in which the student is enrolled or any other Colleges.

  16. Single awards • The single three-year Bachelor’s degree rules (including named degrees) should consist of 96 units (16 courses) from the host College and 48 units (8 courses) as electives. Electives may be chosen from the host College or other Colleges.

  17. Combined awards • Acknowledging that students value the current practice of receiving two testamurs on the completion of a combined award, and that this appears to be a marketing advantage for the ANU, the four-year combined awards will remain shared equally (96 units each) between the two awarding Colleges. However, the option should be available for any student of a combined award to take 48 units as electives of free choice from a third College. In this case their award will consist of 72:72:48 units and students should be awarded a single testamur, Bachelor X/Bachelor Y (with X and Y being the names of the Colleges from which 72 units are taken).

  18. Cross-College recognition of majors Recognize as Arts majors: • Asian languages (French and Spanish to be deemed Asian languages • Mathematics • Psychology

  19. Vice chancellor’s courses • Exemplars of interdisciplinary study • To count towards all awards (exceptions for professional awards) • CASS to develop one in 2011?

  20. Timing and location • Greater spread of classes across timetable: late afternoon and early evening classes for undergraduates? • Some course on offer via HECS in summer and winter

  21. Content of major sequences • Each major (and minor) sequence should have a designated host College. • A major (or minor) need not be confined to the courses offered by the host College. • For the purposes of curriculum planning and the determination of the content of a major or minor sequence, the Education Committee of the host College should establish a discipline committee which will include appropriate representation of relevant disciplinary/area staff from other Colleges of the University. • Decisions as to the structure and content of major and minor sequences will be approved by the host College’s Education Committee.
