The Defining Your Discipline (DYD) Stakeholder Consultation Process was designed to be used by education institutions and/or industry organisations to connect educators with practitioners and other stakeholders to develop a set of practitioner authenticated Graduate Capabilities for a program in their discipline. The DYD Process ensures that the input from each stakeholder is equally valued so that
the opinions or biases of individuals or groups do not impact on the final outcome. The Process is an efficient, effective, flexible and inclusive consultation process that has been trialled in four disciplines and at three qualification levels. The resulting Graduate Capabilities can be used to guide the development of curriculum for a program, to inform a review of existing curriculum, or to guide reviews by external accrediting organisations.
In this action learning workshop, the participants will be provided with an overview of the ten steps in the DYD Stakeholder Consultation Process, and experience in three key steps: gathering; clustering and synthesising the information from discipline stakeholder groups.
