11:00 AM Curriculum Transformation at University of Sydney

As the University of Sydney consolidates 16 faculties into 6 by early 2018, this is a transformation effort some feel has been a long-time coming. Established in 1850, and as Australia’s oldest university, Sydney is one of the last major Australian Universities to transform their curriculum. Sydney University has committed to transform not just its curriculum, but the whole learning experience, across the institution. Join this session to discover what is and isn’t working (yet) and whether there really is such a thing as ‘last-mover advantage’. The session will cover:

  • Why such wide-reaching change, and why now
  • Implementing a next generation LMS
  • Cultural considerations, within the Faculty that international visitors to Sydney identify as ‘Hogwarts’
  • What approaches and techniques are creating a ‘distinctive Sydney education’
  • The search to find the right balance of pedagogy and technology
  • Finding the organisational conversations that can sustain the transformation
