Resources for designing learning and assessment


Beyond the Faculty of Business and Law, Deakin has other resources to support teaching and learning such as the Principles of Premium Learning and Teaching, and the Leading Courses handbook. These resources will help you understand the teaching and learning context in which Deakin operates, and support your resource development.

Principles of Premium Learning and Teaching

It is important to consider these principles as guides for the design of your unit and the development of learning resources. If you require any assistance in translating these principles into concrete actions, register for CloudFirst 101 on CloudDeakin. You can self-register and work through the resources at your own pace.

For further support, you can schedule an appointment with one of the learning designers in the Learning Innovations Team.
