Contemporary higher education students’ expectations, needs and learning practices are reviewed as a prelude to examining approaches to pedagogy, student engagement, the learning cycle, technology rich learning environments, reflective practice and evaluation. This course is designed on the principles of transformation and self-directed learning that enables learners to draw on a flexible range of modalities to demonstrate their learning in learner-specific contexts.

The content is designed to be applicable across all teaching disciplines, and is designed for those teaching in internal and online learning environments in university and other tertiary contexts.

Advanced standing / credit transfer / recognition of prior learning

Everyone’s study journey is different.

You may have already studied some of the units (subjects) listed in your Curtin course, or you may have work experience that matches the degree requirements.

If this applies to you, you can apply for credit for recognised learning (CRL), which means your previous study is recognised and matched against a similar unit in your intended Curtin course.

A successful CRL application exempts you from having to complete certain units within your course and means you could finish your degree in a shorter amount of time.

CRL is also known as recognition of prior learning, advanced standing and credit transfer.
