UNSW is investing an additional $500 million into education initiatives over the next 10 years to increase the quality of student learning experiences, the programs and courses it provides as well as the quality of its teaching. As part of this initiative, UNSW is developing 660 online and blended courses that 75% of undergraduate students will experience in the next five years. In line with the University’s vision and the resources and funding it has allocated, is a shared curriculum framework, course learning design models and tools as well as student-centred guides.
