Curriculum Development – Design and Assessment
The key themes for the Curriculum Refresh Project were drawn from the University Plan. These themes help make JCU’s curriculum distinctive, and include reviewed assessment practices and progression criteria, constructive alignment and good practice principles. External quality assurance, such as the Australian Quality Framework (AQF) is referred to during curriculum development and mapping.
