Title: A methodology for crossunit integration of new topics within an existing course structure


1
A methodology for cross-unit integration of new
topics within an existing course structure
  • Terry Koziniec (t.koziniec_at_murdoch.edu.au)
  • Michael Dixon (mdixon_at_wirth.murdoch.edu.au)

2
Reasons to integrate new technology curriculum
into existing units rather than introduce a new
unit
  • Enables the new technology to be seen in context
    with existing topics.
  • Opportunity to explore the technology at greater
    depth by building on the existing topics
  • A new unit presents the following problems
  • Bureaucratic delays while approval sought
  • Staffing costs
  • Disruption to existing unit structure

Methodology
4
Step 1 Obtain balanced view of appropriate
learning-objectives
  • FROM
  • Experience
  • Text Books
  • Government skills surveys and reports
  • Industry consultation
  • Industry and vendor certification exam objectives

5
Step 2 Generate list of potential learning
objectivesStep 3 Filter list according to
goals and objectives of the education program
6
Step 4 Categorise learning objectives
  • Into
  • Introductory or overview learning objectives or
    topics
  • Standalone topics
  • Advanced topics with dependencies or prerequisites

7
Step 5 Determine new topic fit with existing
units.
  • Introductory and overview topics must map to core
    or area specific units.
  • If they cant then alternative delivery methods
    must be sort for students who are undertaking
    more advanced topics
  • Pre-recorded online introductory lecture one
    possibility

8
Step 6 Mapping exercise
  • New topics are mapped to existing units using
    rules for specific categories
  • Compromise between sequence and fit
  • Not all technologies will fit Consequently some
    new curricula / technology is not suited to
    integration with existing units

9
Conclusion
  • Using the methodology can
  • Reduce the likelihood of missing key learning
    objectives.
  • Lead to more cohesive course and unit structures.
  • Clarify the deliverables of the new curriculum
    within an existing education program.
