The current extended unit outline template is available for downloading from this page.
Before completing your extended unit outline (EUO) for the coming semester you need to determine whether your generic unit outline (GUO) is on the ‘old’ (pre-2017) template or the ‘new’ (2017 onwards) template.
The basic difference is that units written on the new GUO will contain:
If these elements are not present on your GUO it is on the ‘old’ template.
You then need to proceed as follows –
If your unit is on the new GUO template
If your unit is on the old GUO template
Note that the practice of editing a previously developed EUO is an interim measure only whilst GUOs are being progressively transferred to the new template. Once units are in the new template, EUOs should only be developed by transferring information from the GUO to the EUO to ensure an aligned curriculum.
This Curriculum Design PowerPoint (PPTX, 6085.41 KB) provides some context for how and why the new Generic Unit Outlines came about. It also explains why the templates provide the best information possible for students when completed appropriately.
You can download the template and fill in the fields, or you may be able to copy and paste any minor updates into a previous version of your unit outline.
Faculties may have created faculty-specific templates. It is the responsibility of the Lecturer in Charge of a unit to check with the Course (Program) Coordinator for any information specific to the course (or program) and Faculty that is to be included in the extended unit outline.
If you do not have an MS Word version of the unit outline from the previous offering, please contact your faculty or school office.
If you have any queries on the use of the template, or any suggestions for improvement, please contact the Learning and Teaching Centre.
