This ALTC project seeks to develop sustainable energy curriculum frameworks for Australian higher education Institutions that meet the needs of Australian and international student graduates and employers, both now and into the near future. The frameworks will be developed based on existing literature and reports related to skills and knowledge required, surveys of graduates, employers and employer representative bodies as well as best practice in other international institutions. The curriculum frameworks will enable the assessment of existing curricula, course content and delivery methods (e.g. F2f vs online; classroom vs work integrated learning) in Australian Universities and provide guidance on how they can be made more relevant to graduate and employer skills and knowledge needs. It will also provide guidance in the development of new sustainable energy courses and programs in this critical area.
