Find out about Articulation, a tertiary education scenario where there is relatively little flow in and out of tertiary education
About this scenario
A learning environment in this scenario is internally focused and maintains the tertiary organisation’s systems and structures. Staff are confident that they are already performing well, they continue to follow the same policies they’ve followed in the past and avoid risks (e.g. pedagogical or financial risks). Ther approach focuses on certainty, rather than identifying oppourtunity. Students are offered flexibility, as qualifications are mapped, portable and transferable.
Competing activities such as research and quality assurance processes continue to limit faculty opportunities to change some aspects of learning and teaching.
How will your institution improve articulation offerings across programmes?

To increase further flexible utilisation of space and student choice, courses can be offered in a range of modes such as on-campus, online learning, and hybrid blended modes.
Courses that are available as part of a degree may also be studied by students for an articulated Diploma or as an option in the final year of an honours degree programme. The range of named optional courses within an institution may be extended by an agreement with another department. Thus the learning environment remains within institutional boundaries and standards.
