The University of Bath curriculum redesign initiative made real headway last month as the Curriculum Transformation Committee reported that all the early adopter postgraduate taught courses had successfully completed Phase 1 of their course portfolio review.
The early adopters from Management, Social & Policy Sciences and Architecture & Civil Engineering have been engaging with a wide range of stakeholders including staff, students, alumni, employers and industry to generate ideas and discussion around the knowledge, attributes and skills that students need for their future careers.
The strategic positioning component of Phase 1 provided departments a unique opportunity to reimagine their teaching and communicate the distinctiveness of their educational offering - integrating new and innovative approaches to teaching and learning.
Professor Peter Lambert, Pro Vice-Chancellor, Learning and Teaching said:
‘In order to deliver higher education for the next generation we must challenge ourselves to think ahead to the future needs of our students and staff, and consider what their experience at Bath will need to provide them with in order to thrive in an ever changing world.
The curriculum transformation project has gained real momentum and I would like to congratulate the early adopters and supporting departments who have spearheaded this vital university-wide project to shape the future of learning and teaching at Bath.’
The early adopter curriculum teams now start Phase 2: Detailed Development and are attending intensive toolkit workshops designed and supported by the Centre for Teaching and Learning’s Curriculum Development team throughout March.
