Learning Environments can help you with advice and information about FlexAP.

Flexible Academic Programming (FlexAP)

The University’s strategic FlexAP program of work supports:

  • Enhancement of the quality of teaching, learning and assessment
  • Student experience through additional flexible study options and choice
  • Effective use of the University’s infrastructure and resources.

The FlexAP program of work is organised into activity streams through Chancellery, and the streams listed below are supported by Learning Environments and the Melbourne Centre for the Study of Higher Education (MCSHE).

More information about FlexAP can be found on the Staff Hub:

FlexAP activity streams

Online, blended and alternative delivery

Projects in this stream can be for subjects ranging from being taught partly in person with synchronous events through to fully online delivery. Types of projects can include:

  • Small-scale implementations as part of a blended delivery (e.g. the development of one or more online modules)
  • Improvements to LMS subject sites
  • Improvements to blended synchronous sessions
  • Large-scale implementations (redesign of subject learning sequences to increase study flexibility transition to fully online asynchronous delivery).

See what is involved with working with Learning Environments on your Online, blended and alternative delivery project .

Projects can include between 1 and 6 existing subjects, with a combined enrolment of 150+ students.

Support levels can range from full learning design and pedagogical/technical development, including project management, through structural subject design, consultative guidance, professional development, or self-supported options.

Projects in this stream are supported by Learning Environments; ranging from project oversight, through to fully project managed with curriculum review and development of your subject within the LMS. We are very happy to discuss your ideas for an online, blended and alternative delivery project. Contact the learning design team in Learning Environments.

Foundational curriculum

The foundational curriculum stream is focused on the learning experiences of students in subjects with large enrolments which are foundational to the degree (both undergraduate and postgraduate). The threshold for support includes subjects with over 200 enrolments (where faculties have few or no subjects that meet this threshold, consideration may be given to initiatives that involve several subjects which collectively enrol over 200 students).

Three broad, evidence-based priority areas have been identified:

  • Assessment and feedback
  • Cohort connections and interactions
  • Authentic learning

Projects in this stream are supported by Melbourne CSHE and Learning Environments.
