A web-based curriculum management system developed at The University of Notre Dame Australia has been shortlisted in prestigious national business awards which recognise Australia’s most innovative companies.
Notre Dame’s Prudentia, a system that provides logic, order and transparency to complex curriculum data for undergraduate and graduate courses in higher education, has been shortlisted in the Financial Review BOSS Most Innovative Companies Awards 2019.
Prudentia has been shortlisted in the Government and Not for Profit (NFP) category of the Awards, widely regarded as among the top business awards in Australia,
The winners will be announced at an awards ceremony in Sydney on 8 August.
Notre Dame’s National Director of Learning & Teaching, Professor Carole Steketee, led the development of Prudentia and highlights its user-friendly interface as being a key factor in its success, as it allows students and educators alike to easily traverse learning and assessment expectations across the scope and sequence of entire courses.
Originally designed for medical degrees, it has recently been broadened to accommodate courses in any discipline, and it is currently being tested with a view to commercialisation.
The 2019 Australian Financial Review BOSS Most Innovative Companies is a comprehensive ranking of innovative companies across Australasia. Competitors are judged by BOSS and Australian innovation consultancy, Inventium.
