A new undergraduate model for broadly based spatial science curriculum at Queensland University of Technology : diversity in surveying curriculum
Webb, Robert M. (2010) A new undergraduate model for broadly based spatial science curriculum at Queensland University of Technology : diversity in surveying curriculum. In Proceedings of XXIV FIG International Congress 2010, International Federation of Surveyors (FIG), Sydney Convention and Exhibition Centre, pp. 1-16.
This paper provides an overview of the current QUT Spatial Science undergraduate program based in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia. It discusses the development and implementation of a broad-based educational model for the faculty of built environment and engineering courses and specifically to the course structure of the new Bachelor of Urban Development (Spatial Science) study major. A brief historical background of surveying courses is discussed prior to the detailing of the three distinct and complementary learning themes of the new course structure with a graphical course matrix. Curriculum mapping of the spatial science major has been undertaken as the course approaches formal review in late 2010. Work-integrated learning opportunities have been embedded into the curriculum and a brief outline is presented. Some issues relevant to the tertiary surveying/ spatial sector are highlighted in the context of changing higher education environments in Australia.
