Led by: Dr Tom Parkinson/University of Kent and Prof Aysha Divan/University of Leeds.

Main Workshop Aims

  • Identify key orientations to learning and how these might apply to their context;
  • Recognise UK/European expectations of graduates and be able to compare this with expectations and aspirations held within the context of their current institution;
  • Use a curriculum framework to enhance or plan a new curriculum; and  
  • Consider how they can actively help support pedagogic change amongst their faculty colleagues and the wider university.

Key Outcomes

  • Understand qualification levels and credit frameworks and how these inform programme design and transferability;
  • Apply Blooms taxonomy in the design of programme and module descriptions;
  • Understand and apply principles of assessment and feedback in student assessment;
  • Apply the UCL ABC method of course design to develop a new course for addressing knowledge gaps, incorporating student-centred, active learning approaches;
  • Reflect on their knowledge and skills in relation to the UKPSF standards and develop an action plan for individual professional development and support of faculty colleagues.
