Seeing the wood and the trees: Enhancing student learning by connecting assessment across units
A/Prof Leonie Tickle

This demonstration reports on an initiative whereby the major assignments in three concurrently-offered units are coordinated so that all are components of a single overarching, real-world project. By encouraging and enabling connections of various types - between concepts across units, between theory and practice, between academic convenors, and between academia and industry - the initiative enhances the student learning experience. The demonstration will showcase the teaching tools used and report student feedback.

A Relevant Economics Curriculum for a Dynamic World - Moving from Content to Concepts
Prashan Karunaratne

The first-year economics curriculum at Macquarie University is undergoing a transformation to cater to a diverse student audience, and to cater to the future dynamic career paths of our students. The literature on threshold concepts has guided the transformation of the economics curricula; through a meta-analysis of the literature of threshold concepts in economics, to date the author has systematically addressed every stage of the curriculum cycle. The transformation of the curriculum has resulted in a significant improvement in both the LEU responses as well as the overall grade distribution of the cohort.
