Systems thinking and programmatic perspectives for meaningful curricular transformations

Whether you are a course convenor, educator, professional staff, or tutor, do you feel overwhelmed by the sheer number of assessments you and your students manage? Are you frustrated that students seem to be learning only to pass examinations? Do you think the courses within your program are disjointed and disconnected? 

If you answered yes, join us at this forum led by A/Prof. Priya Khanna. Discover systems-thinking based perspectives on designing meaningful curricula and engage in discussions on programmatic approaches to assessment transformations. Drawing from her extensive research, Priya will share both theoretical insights and empirical findings on how to create holistic curricular designs that are meaningful to both you and your students.
