The current extended unit outline template is available for downloading from this page.
Before completing your EUO for the coming semester you need to determine whether your GUO is on the ‘old’ (pre-2017) template or the ‘new’ (2017 onwards) template.
The basic difference is that units written on the new GUO will contain:
- a unit rationale,
- a learning and teaching strategy and rationale,
- an assessment strategy and rationale.
If these elements are not present on your GUO it is on the ‘old’ template.
You then need to proceed as follows –
If your unit is on the new GUO template
- Transfer the key information from the GUO to the EUO and develop in more detail the teaching schedule, assessments and other information for students
If your unit is on the old GUO template
- use your previous EUO from the relevant unit (you may need to obtain a copy of the ‘old’ EUO from the relevant administrator)
- edit the ‘old’ EUO as required
PLEASE NOTE – the practice of editing a previously developed EUO is an interim measure only whilst GUOs are being progressively transferred to the new template. Once units are in the new template, EUOs should only be developed by transferring information from the GUO to the EUO to ensure an aligned curriculum.
This Curriculum Design PowerPoint (PPTX, 6085.41 KB) provides some context for how and why the new Generic Unit Outlines came about. It also explains why the templates provide the best information possible for students when completed appropriately.
How to use the template
You can download the template and fill in the fields, or you may be able to copy and paste any minor updates into a previous version of your unit outline.
Faculties may have created faculty-specific templates. It is the responsibility of the Lecturer in Charge of a unit to check with the Course (Program) Coordinator for any information specific to the course (or program) and Faculty that is to be included in the extended unit outline.
If you do not have an MS Word version of the unit outline from the previous offering, please contact your faculty or school office.
Help and questions
If you have any queries on the use of the template, or any suggestions for improvement, please contact the Learning and Teaching Centre.
