They were announced in the recent ten-year plan – and lo! here they are
The university committed to creating, “high-quality, short programs that can build into full-length qualifications from undergraduate level through to postgraduate,” (CMM December 2 2020) and now announces 18 on-line, “stackable short courses,” in business/management and health/psychology. They take from a couple of days to eight weeks and are “designed to stack together as credit towards a full Deakin postgraduate degree.”
“Get the rapid knowledge growth you need now (without breaking the bank) to maximise your career potential and ensure long-term employability,” is the sell.
The product looks a lot-like micro-credentials, designed for the professional development market Deakin U has worked in for decades.
