The undergraduate Engineering curriculum at Macquarie has been undergoing redesign based on smaller modules. Each semesterised teaching unit addresses a single transformative threshold concept through a coherent sequence of modules. Each module is self-contained and focuses on a clearly identified skill and knowledge concepts, informed by the threshold concept.
During Learning & Teaching Week 2014, Professor Anthony Parker will be discussing the development and implementation of this modular approach to the Engineering curriculum.
In this video, Program Manager Daniel McGill discusses the motivations behind the project.
