In good news the new GD204 Graduate Diploma of Early Childhood Education was approved by Academic Board yesterday. GD204 will replace the existing Grad Dip program in 2020, with the old program being taught out to 2021.
In a change of process Deans now speak to new programs, outlining the teaching philosophy, student experiences and how we can assure the quality of our graduates. It was a pleasure to speak to this new program. The program was approved without questions and a number of members spoke to me afterwards about their support for the innovative nature of the new program.
Congratulations to all involved. On to ACECQA for accreditation!
