Open Conversations: Curriculum Future – Trends in Curriculum Design Thinking
Models considered will include:
Low-residency; blended learning; CPD short course portfolios with credit- bearing modules; repurposed or ‘hacked’ existing curricula for collaborative ‘lab’ delivery; mobile programmes; live studios embedded in UG and PG courses; company structures that support spin-out operations that can deliver course elements.
Boldon will also examine how to repurpose existing curricula to: allow students to commit to UG and PG study whilst maintaining professional practice/lives outside of study; maximise resources including facilities that may not be used all year by UG courses; allow staff to integrate research into course delivery; concentrate teaching time/contact hours so that staff are able to focus on research and professional practice.
