The course plan will allow innovations in teaching and at the same time guide students better in their learning experience. In summary: |
Course outline: Provides the basic information for the management and quality assurance of the course. The standardised template is to be used. Should there need to be additional information required by professional bodies, the course owner may include this as Annex 1. This course outline should be well thought-out to last the entire cycle of the curriculum without the need to re-submit to Senate.
Course plan: Provides the details on how the course is to be implemented for the particular semester. This includes details on what topic to be covered when, what activities to be done when, and the details of the assessment. There is no standardised template, as long as the information is understood and able to be monitored, the course instructor is accountable for the course plan implementation. The course plan is flexible in terms of its adaptability to the immediate needs that arise at any particular time.
