Developing Australian academics' capacity: supporting the adoption of Open Educational Practices into curriculum design (2014)$50,000
Description
This project aims to design, develop and test a free, open and online professional development course about curriculum design. The course will focus specifically on developing the capacity of academics in Australia to adopt and incorporate Open Educational Resources (OER) and Open Educational Practices (OEP) into curriculum development for more effective and efficient learning and teaching across the Australian higher education sector. This course will be a micro Open Online Course (mOOC) where 'micro' refers to a sub-component of a full course.
