The following observations are provided for IIBT to consider in the review and improvement of its higher education operations. IIBT may wish to:
- correct naming inconsistencies in course documentation prior to course delivery to prevent any potential confusion among staff and students regarding the course and unit titles (3.1.1)
- map learning outcomes against the Australian Computing Society's (ACS's) graduate attributes to indicate how the course structure and content meet industry requirements and needs (3.1.5)
- broaden the involvement of industry participants on the Advisory Board and establishing a Course Review Committee that comprises senior academics, industry representatives, current students and graduates of this course to ensure robust and independent course review practices (3.1.5, 5.1.2 and 5.1.3b)
- monitor the use of course resources (especially textbooks) to ensure that they are accessible to students when needed (3.3.1)
- insert into marketing materials and documents for prospective students (e.g. course webpage, letter of offer, course brochure) links to IIBT's recognition of prior learning (RPL) and credit transfer policies to make these arrangements clear and transparent (7.2.2a).
