What the project is?
The University of Hull is engaged in a strategic journey towards whole curriculum and pedagogic redesign. Three faculties will be introducing their revised and refreshed curriculum and pedagogies in 2016 and a further two in 2017.
The Curriculum 2016+ change initiative, under which these changes are occurring, emerged from the University’s Strategic Plan 2011-2015 and the accompanying Learning, Teaching and Student Experience Strategy 2012-2015.
The key to these documents is the University’s commitment to placing students at the heart of the University by:
- Refreshing the academic portfolio to create a fit for purpose curriculum for graduates of the 21st Century
- Developing problem-focused interdisciplinary approaches to teaching and learning in addition to high quality single-discipline offerings
- Ensuring the connection between research and teaching remains strong so that students understand and engage in the creation of new knowledge and are not simply consumers of old knowledge
- Ensuring that employability, internationalisation and inclusivity are included in our portfolio
What the project plans to achieve?
During the period of funding for this project Hull are looking to identify and define appropriate methodologies and metrics to measure our success in these areas.
What will success for the Curriculum 2016+ Evaluation project look like?
- A defined set of metrics which can be adopted and adapted by the sector to evaluate the effect of curriculum change;
- Evidence of the effectiveness of the metrics with case study examples from the University of Hull.
