Tools and approaches for designing a flexible curriculum

The programme meeting for the Curriculum Design projects held last week in Birmingham focussed on tools and projects for creating a more flexible curriculum.

After an update from the three project clusters the day focussed around three issues that had emerged from Cluster meetings:

  • Managing Course Information
  • Learner Centred Timetabling
  • Managing Teaching workload

    A number of really useful tools and examples for enabling increased flexibility were presented including:

  • The Open University Course representation tools
  • Dynamic Learning Maps at Newcastle
  • The Footprint timetabling project at Leeds Met
  • The Managing Academic Workload project at Salford
  • The Teaching Duties database at Cambridge University
    • View a full report of the day, kindly produced by Christina Smart, JISC Cetis.
