Course Design Blueprint

Our institutional values

Our institutional values define how we work as a community and how we design and deliver our learning and teaching.  How will the design and delivery of your course demonstrate these?

Our Values are:

  • Professional - striving to deliver the highest standards of service and scholarship
  • Inclusive - a community built on respect, fairness and compassion. We debate our differences sensitively and celebrate the strength and creativity that a diverse community gives us.
  • Collaborative - inclusive, trusting and supportive relationships which build a sense of community and mutual responsibility and help achieve our mutual goals.
  • Creative - challenging established beliefs, generating new ideas and striving to change the communities we serve. We are innovative in finding new ways and solutions to advance the boundaries of knowledge and address real-life issues.
  • Empowering - Inspiring all members of the University to be the best they can be and support them to realise their potential.
  • Transformative  - believing in the power of education to deliver positive change for the individuals and communities with whom we work.
