The Navigator, a core unit of the new AUD$25 million state-funded Sydney School of Entrepreneurship (SSE), provides an example of how a new course is co-developed and co-delivered by an interdisciplinary group of academics across multiple universities to multiple cohorts of students from all 12 higher-education institutions (HEIs) across the State of New South Wales (NSW). What is unique about this course is the extremely diverse inter-organisational environment hosted by SSE and the speed at which the unit was designed, often adjusted only hours ahead of delivery. While the operational details of SSE still require attention, the cross-institutional collaboration to develop The Navigator is recognised as best-practice in co-development of state- or even nation-wide curriculum.
