    Abstract

    This case discusses a programme to develop areas of 'education strengths' in the curricula of a foreign branch campus of an Australian university. The programme may be seen as a means for organisational change, enabling academic staff to define their own areas of speciality and foci for curricula development and stimulating them to greater levels of ownership, interest and enthusiasm in their teaching. This program enrichens the curriculum by 'localising' it for the student cohort, it thus impacts positively on student retention.
