An overview of the best features:
Programme design that is fit for purpose_
Thoughtfully designed and curated courseware remains pivotal to the provision of quality learning in all modes of instruction. The alignment of the intended learning outcomes of a programme with the teaching, learning and assessment practices of the programme is framed by the courseware, and is given expression in the programme design.
We approach the development of courseware with the fullest appreciation of the complex interaction between learning outcomes, courseware, teaching, learning, assessment and graduateness. The quality of learning provision supports the academic and financial goals and aspirations of students and providers alike.
To this end, we offer a series of higher education programme design exemplars (PDEs) that include relevant sections of the South African Qualifications Authority (SAQA) document design, as well as a set of module outlines for each PDE, which in turn are aligned (constructively) with a complete set of Digital CourseBooks. Furthermore, the PDEs present the opportunity for seamless alignment with suitable exit-level outcomes and associated criteria, with the aim of rendering a programme design that is fit for purpose in relation to your institution’s academic project.
