The Short Course Approval and Review Policy and Short Course Approval and Review Procedure were reviewed during 2019. They have now been rewritten to recognise the introduction of microcredentials at ACU in accordance with the framework for microcredentials sponsored by Acting Provost, Professor Zlatko Skrbis.

The revision and rewrite of the policy and the new guidelines was undertaken by the Office of the Academic Registrar in conjunction with the Learning and Teaching Centre, and in consultation with the Faculties.

The newly approved Microcredential and Short Course Policy and Guidelines include:

  • Adoption of microcredentials.
  • Development of a new set of principles for short courses and microcredentials.
  • Development of revised guidelines for the approval and offering short courses and microcredentials.
