Subject Design

Subject design helps to plan for, deliver and reflect upon the curriculum. It assists academics to design the most important set of knowledge, skills and attributes to include in a subject that maximises the learning experience and potential of students. It considers a sound and aligned curriculum where learning outcomes, teaching and learning activities and assessments are interrelated.


WCLA provides support for subject coordinators to create or redesign subjects based on sound pedagogy and research-supported practice. The support focuses on fostering a student-centred learning experience. This collaboration between the academic and WCLA will focus on the educational purposes of the subject, the planned educational experiences to reach those purposes, how those experiences are organised and how to evaluate if those purposes are achieved.
