Curriculum Design: Changing the paradigm

This webinar explores emerging outcomes from the JISC Institutional Approaches to Curriculum Design programme, an ambitious intervention in one of the core practices of academic life. In the three years since its inception, the programme has seen radical, systemic change at some of the 12 participating institutions, and subtle, embedded change at others. Despite very different emphases, from managing course information to embedding new graduate attributes, evidence is emerging that joined-up thinking across the curriculum lifecycle can enhance processes, engage stakeholders, and generate more relevant learning opportunities.
  • The aspirations expressed in institutional learning and teaching strategies are not always effectively articulated through the curriculum design and approval process.
  • Improvements in curriculum design need to happen across three levels: learning and personal transformation, curriculum transformation, and institutional transformation.
  • Strong evidence is emerging that improved curriculum conversations are making the design process more transparent, accessible and useable by a wider variety of stakeholders, thereby enabling institutions to improve the quality of their curriculum offerings to students.
  • There is a clear appetite for a single, trusted source of information about course curricula within institutions, which can be represented in different formats to suit different requirements.
  • A wide range of resources emerging from the JISC Curriculum Design programme are now available at the Design Studio.
