Curriculum Innovation Process

The Curriculum Innovation Process (CIP) is a series of annual data-informed conversations with Academic Units on their:

  • Teaching quality
  • Program and course design and efficiency
  • Student engagement, satisfaction and graduate outcomes
  • Teaching-research alignment
  • Academic workforce
  • Teaching facilities.

The CIP is a key response to the challenges laid out in Enterprise25, UniSA's Strategic Action Plan 2018-2025 and seeks to:

  • Take a whole of enterprise view of disciplines that underpin our curriculum including alignment with our research strengths, the quality of our facilities, and future workforce needs
  • Improve student satisfaction, student retention, and graduate employment (assessed on statistics) particularly in our key discipline areas
  • Enhance teaching quality through supporting and developing our academic workforce
  • Ensure that adequate resources are available to sustain unique programs in areas of future workforce need and those that are of strategic value to the institution and the community
  • Enhance awareness of key discipline areas to improve demand for our programs
  • Improve the quality and consistency of blended delivery to enhance the flexibility of our curriculum for local, regional, and international students.

Each year, a series of actions and strategic priorities are identified through the CIP for academic and central units to lead, and these are incorporated in local area and enterprise support plans. A number of major university-wide strategic projects have also emanated from the CIP.
