ACU chosen to trial new teaching approach – CathNews.

Of course, this will lead to lower tuition costs… won’t it?

Australian Catholic University is one of two tertiary institutions chosen for a pilot program to trial the the use of instructional software and other web-based learning resources, reports theAustralian.

A three-year pilot will overhaul two subjects each at James Cook University and the Australian Catholic University, using an American-style redesign of potential “bottleneck” subjects which could improve student outcomes while cutting delivery costs by up to 77 percent, the paper reports.

The beauty of this is that one might assume that one gets an even standard of tuition, rather than the hit and miss teaching that seems to be normal in unit these days.
