A glossary is an alphabetical list of terms in a particular domain of knowledge with the definitions for those terms.

Given the large number of policies, procedures and guidelines that underpin teaching and learning across all the disciplines at ACU, and to help with the interpretation of these documents, a number of online glossaries have been created that are available on the ACU website.

Examples of ACU online glossaries

ACU glossary of terms - meaning of terms used in policies and procedures documents within the University and as general information for staff and students

Uni terminology - information for parents

Glossary of assessment terminology

Definitions of terms, acronyms and abbreviations are also located within the policies and procedures documents associated with learning and teaching and course administration.
