Vanguards celebrated for their role in curriculum transformation

Posted in: curriculum transformation

Vanguards from the faculties of Science, and Engineering and Design were celebrated at the Curriculum Transformation Committee this week for the vital contribution they are making in leading the University of Bath’s Curriculum Transformation project.

Back in 2017, the vanguard programmes volunteered to start the curriculum redesign process early to be a much needed ‘test bed’ for the initiative. Over many months, these programmes have been on a journey of discovery to create a refreshed curricula in consultation with key internal and external stakeholders in readiness for their launch with new students in October later this year.

Dr Marianne Ellis, Faculty of Engineering and Design Associate Dean said: “The curriculum transformation process is challenging but also exciting and rewarding, and, absolutely key to delivering higher education for the next generation. This project allows a high level of creativity and ambition in approach to curriculum design, and I know that the new course design in the Department of Chemical Engineering – the undergraduate vanguard - is one they and the University can be proud of.”

Dr Dawn Albertson, Curriculum Development Manager said: “The vanguards have been instrumental in testing and piloting the curriculum redesign process from the very start. We as the Curriculum Development team, have learnt so much from working with them that has substantively shaped how we look to scale the process. Their impact goes far beyond their individual programmes and that leadership should be recognised campus-wide. They have added real value to the process and I am extremely grateful to all of them for being the leading lights in this project.”

The University of Bath Curriculum Transformation initiative is a university-wide change project aiming to redesign our undergraduate and postgraduate taught courses for October 2021 entry.
