One of the key issues facing higher education institutions is how to best equip their students and prepare them amongst the changing nature of the workplace. The concept of Flipping the Curriculum has emerged as the Australian Office for Learning and teaching has re-established its efforts in addressing student capabilities and integrating competencies towards achieving student graduate learning outcomes. Quality assurance and integrity in higher education assessments have been given focus to developing future graduates to be ready for work today and ‘job ready’ plus for the workplace tomorrow. The FlipCurric and Job Ready Plus have gained attention by academics and robust evidence over the decade has proven that internal assessments contribute more than anything which stimulates students learning ability.
Geoff Scott (Emeritus Prof. Western Sydney’ University) will be holding a workshop, presenting the Victorian Launch of the FLIPcurric.
