Curriculum review at Adelaide U

The University of Adelaide has launched “a major curriculum review,” led by DVC A Pascale Quester. It will, “ensure a curriculum model for the university that is coherent, fit-for-purpose and highly compelling for diverse student cohorts as they prepare for their futures in the rapidly changing environment of work and society.”

But what, CMM wonders does this mean for former VC Warren Bebbington’s small group discovery model, “in which students work together with a staff mentor in pursuit of new discovery”? So CMM asked and last night the university replied, “As part of developing a new strategic plan we are undertaking a curriculum review and developing a refreshed research strategic plan to build upon the accomplishments of the previous strategic plan.” Good-o but does “build upon: means extend the approach. Or does it means “bury”.
