The development of a "Good Practice Guide" for first year curriculum development, revision and evaluation : a moving feast
Creagh, Tracy A., Nelson, Karen J., & Clarke, John A. (2010) The development of a "Good Practice Guide" for first year curriculum development, revision and evaluation : a moving feast. In 13th Pacific Rim First Year in Higher Education Conference, 27-30 June 2010, Intercontinental Hotel, Adelaide, SA.
Since 2002 QUT has sponsored a range of first year-focussed initiatives, most recently the Transitions In Project (TIP) which was designed to complement the First Year Experience Program and be a capacity building initiative. A primary focus of TIP was The First Year Curriculum Project: the review, development, implementation and evaluation of first year curriculum which has culminated in the development of a “Good Practice Guide” for the management of large first year units. First year curriculum initiates staff-student relationships and provides the scaffolding for the learning experience and engagement. Good practice in first year curriculum is within the control of the institution and can be redesigned and reviewed to improve outcomes. This session will provide a context for the First Year Curriculum Project and a concise overview of the suite of resources developed that have culminated in the Good Practice Guide.
