I will be writing a series of posts about the Institutional Approaches to Curriculum Design programme as a guest on the JISC CETIS ‘other voices’ blog.
The first post Curriculum Design: The Big Picture is published today and sets the scene for the series which will be looking at the range of institutional processes and systems that the projects are considering and changing to support their curriculum design activities. This first post highlights the approaches they’ve taken to illustrate and map some of their processes and where they connect.
There are some really interesting approaches to capturing the range of processes and highlighting where they connect. This has revealed where there is potential to share data between systems to simplify activities, improve efficiency by reducing duplication and enhancing the student and staff experience. After speaking with a few of the project teams I am struck most by the value of these mapping activities to stimulate new conversations and change the way staff view the systems that support their activities. It is this cultural change that will ultimately be transformational and make the project activities sustainable long after project funding ends.
