About the event
The challenge to higher education institutions of providing a truly inclusive curriculum appears to many as complex and elusive. Our response to widening participation, greater student diversity and the increasing emphasis on the student experience is critical. One of the starting points has to be in the conception and design of the curriculum itself.
This workshop will engage academics, administrators, managers and practitioners in a series of engaging interactive activities (loosely based on a ‘board game’ approach) informed by evidence, which invite critical reflection on existing process and practices in curriculum design, and the broader student experience of teaching and learning . The outcomes envisaged from these creative conversations are new strategies, approaches and opportunities for extending student engagement, retention and success of our students.
After attending this session you will
- Be conversant with evidence to supporting the rationale for more inclusive and dynamic curriculum design and review processes.
- Make use of a range of creative tools to engender debate and engagement about inclusive and responsive curriculum design in your own institution.
