Purpose

This guideline clarifies the distribution of teaching offerings and responsibilities between the ANU Colleges and the Centre for Learning and Teaching.

Definitions

Centre for Learning and Teaching (CLT): The Centre for Learning and Teaching within the office of the Pro-Vice Chancellor (Education)

Guideline

  1. Ownership of offerings and appointment of teaching staff:
  1. all courses that are designed to count towards AQF Qualifications (hereafter AQF Courses) are owned by Colleges; and taught by one or more College Academic Organisational Units (AOU), or where approved by the Vice-Chancellor a third-party provider, aligned with the discipline/field;
  2. all micro-credentials, other than those relating to teaching and learning (T&L) pedagogy, are owned by Colleges and taught by one or more College AOUs aligned with the discipline/field;
  3. micro-credentials relating to teaching and learning pedagogy may be owned and taught by the Centre for Learning and Teaching or by Colleges; they are regulated by the Micro-Credentials policy and procedure.
  4. non-credentialed educational offerings are regulated by the Professional and Short Courses policy and procedure.
  1. CLT is responsible, within the framework provided by the University’s policies and procedures, for managing the quality assurance of teaching and learning in the micro-credentialed and non-credentialed education offerings that it owns, and for reporting this to the ANU Teaching and Learning Development Committee.
  2. Where the owning College does not do so internally, CLT will provide, on a fee-for-service basis, mutually agreed administrative (but not academic) services for micro-credentials and non-credentialed education offerings that are owned and taught by Colleges. This can include, for example, scheduling, marketing, enrolment, certification, room bookings, and communication with students. CLT is not responsible for managing quality assurance data collection for offerings by Colleges unless it is contracted to do so.
  3. In-person components of all CLT-owned offerings are taught only in Canberra. CLT is not to teach in person outside of Canberra. There is no restriction on the geographical location of staff teaching online components or students taking online components.
  4. Matrix of offerings and responsibilities (non-credentialed offerings are excluded from this matrix if there is no certification of completion or attendance and no attendees/participants are charged a fee):

AQF Courses (all are credentialed)

Micro-credentials (including T&L PD)
