Knowledge and Attributes Taxonomies

Curriculum frameworks have been developed for sustainable energy programs or qualifications at different levels within the Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF). In order to develop these curriculum frameworks the curriculum development framework of Dowling and Hadgraft [2013] was adapted and extended. Part of this new approach and process was to develop a set of Sustainable energy knowledge taxonomies that graphically present the knowledge and knowledge linkages needed by sustainable energy graduates.

As well as the sustainable energy knowledge taxonomies a set of generic and discipline attributes were developed and constructed into a Generic skills and professional attributes taxonomy diagram.
