Course Description

This course covers the performance outcomes, skills and knowledge required to design, develop and review learning strategies.

National Codes, Titles, Elements and Performance Criteria

National Element Code & Title:

TAEDES501A Design and develop learning strategies


1. Determine the parameters of the learning strategy

Performance Criteria:

1.1 Clarify the purpose of the learning strategy, likely target groups and their learning needs
1.2 Research qualification or other benchmark options for meeting the likely target group needs and select an appropriate option
1.3 Consult with relevant people to confirm the parameters of the learning strategy


2. Develop the framework for the learning strategy

Performance Criteria:

2.1 Develop a learning strategy design that reflects the requirements of the selected qualification or other benchmark
2.2 Analyse industry or organisation documentation to determine additional and supporting requirements
2.3 Research and analyse options for design, based on likely target groups, their learning needs and contexts for delivery
2.4 Use appropriate learning theories and instructional design principles to support the learning strategy design
2.5 Identify and document broad content headings
2.6 Consult to modify and confirm the framework
2.7 Develop the review process for the learning strategy


3. Devise the content and structure of the learning strategy

Performance Criteria:

3.1 Elaborate on and document each content heading to form an overview of content to be addressed
3.2 Sequence the content to support learning and determine overall timelines within operating constraints
3.3 Express learning strategy outcomes to reflect both generic and specific learning outcomes to be achieved
3.4 Identify and document appropriate delivery and assessment strategies, taking account of the learning parameters, design framework and learning context
3.5 Identify and document operational requirements


4. Review the learning strategy

Performance Criteria:

4.1 Review the learning strategy in collaboration with relevant people against specified criteria prior to and post implementation
4.2 Document a post-implementation review process that includes measures for identifying the effectiveness and quality of the learning strategy
4.3 Make recommendations and changes based on outcomes of the review processes, where appropriate, and document these
4.4 Make modifications and document as part of a continuous improvement strategy

Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion of this course you will be able to:
. determine the parameters of learning strategies
. develop the framework for learning strategies

Overview of Assessment


During the program you will complete assessment tasks which are listed, in detail, at the beginning of the course. These tasks include:

 - Workplace based projects
- Contributions to online discussion forums

An assessment policy summarises your responsibilities as an RMIT student as well as those of your teachers.
Your courses assessment conforms to RMIT assessment principles, regulations, policies and procedures see

If you have a long-term medical condition and/or disability it may be possible to negotiate to vary aspects of the learning or assessment methods. You can contact the program coordinator or the Disability Liaison Unit if you would like to find out more.



Assessment Tasks

To demonstrate competency in this course, you need to complete each one of the following pieces of assessment to a satisfactory standard.

Present a minimum of two examples of learning strategies designed with differentiated design structures in each strategy that: reflect the specific requirements of the qualification or skill set; and reflect client needs and contexts of application. You will need to implement at least one learning strategy and document a review which provides outcomes and evidence of continuous improvement.

Grades used in this unit are as follows:
CA Competency Achieved
NYC Not Yet Competent
DNS Did Not Submit For Assessment

For further information on the grading system and criteria used, please refer to the course website on myRMIT Studies.

Assessment Matrix

The assessment matrix demonstrates how the assessment task(s) aligns with the relevant unit
of competency and will be made available in the first class or through myRMIT Studies.
