1. The UQ2U approach will provide students with a signature UQ experience that maximises campus-based ‘face time’ with academics and peers, in combination with high-value, flexible online learning.
    • The online learning component provides students with the flexibility to learn at their own pace and in ways that suit their personal circumstances. On-line learning is focused on providing critical content without compromising on learning outcomes. Importantly, online modules are designed to be interactive and engaging, enabling both learning and collaboration across the course cohort.
    • Active on-campus learning focuses on maximising face-to-face collaborative learning that is engaging, practical, and provides students with incremental feedback as they progress through the course.
  2. In combination, this approach will provide students with the learning outcomes and transferable skills needed to prepare for their future.
    • The world of work is changing dramatically as artificial intelligence and other technologies impact on all corners of society.
    • Today’s graduates will have multiple careers over their lifetime.
    • An estimated 65% of children entering primary schools today will work in jobs and functions that don’t currently exist*.
    • Demand for deep data and digital expertise will grow exponentially.
    • Foundational skills such as critical thinking will be vital as will other transferable ‘softer’ skills such as communication.
    • By 2020 more than a third of desired core skill sets of most occupations will be comprised of skills that are not yet considered crucial to the job today*.
  3. UQ2U builds on the great work already undertaken by academics from across the University who have been at the forefront of multi-faceted learning for many years.
  4. UQ2U formalises their pioneering efforts and allows for this contemporary approach to be implemented more broadly across the University.
