Abstract

The project aims to improve the capacity of participating course coordinators and other middle level managers to lead discipline-based curriculum review and to offer peer review of curriculum. The project will also improve the capacity of participating academic development staff to support leadership development for curriculum review and relate to the cultural and conceptual context of discipline-based unit coordinators. The purpose is to create greater awareness amongst learning and teaching leadership (deputy vice-chancellors, pro vice-chancellors, deans, and sub-deans) of the institutional commitments and mechanisms needed to support effective leadership development.
