Development of a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) for Regulation Impact Analysis (RIA)
Show close time for other time zones
The Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet (PM&C) plans to establish a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) using a well-established international platform in order to provide training on regulation impact analysis (RIA).
The main objective is to improve the capacity of the public service to provide evidence-based policy making, smarter regulation, better service delivery, and programme evaluations.
A MOOC is an online education platform that can be accessed by anyone at any time. PMC plans to establish a MOOC that would be free to the user, although access to some content may be restricted.
RIA is an evidence-based approach that governments use when considering new or revised regulatory policies (see https://www.cuttingredtape.gov.au/handbook/australian-government-guide-regulation).
The Regulation Impact Statement (RIS) is an analytical document that considers the costs and benefits of new regulation. It is the central component of RIA.
The MOOC would focus on the Australian Government RIS system but be capable of extensions to other RIS systems such as in relation to state and territory governments or other international governments.
The MOOC would have core and optional modules. The core modules would focus on outlining the RIA process; the Australian Government regulatory cost estimation methodology and requirements; cost-benefit analysis; and regulatory economics courses.
The optional modules would include agency specific courses (i.e. health, education, etc.); an overview of the Council of Australian Governments (COAG) RIS process; and state, territory and international government’s RIS and costing processes. There is also scope for various modules to be translated into different languages.

The Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) needs to be designed, tested and implemented ready for use by 30 June 2015.
