We are not retro-fitting: Integrating standards for quality holistic course design

Research output: Other contribution to conferencePosterpeer-review

Abstract

The process of curriculum design in Higher Education has traditionally been done by focussing at the subject level with the requirement to integrate accreditation standards/professional requirements, and other sets of standards both external and internal to the institution. The challenge is to develop a framework for the inclusion of multiple standards which is holist, authentic and forward looking rather than a retro-fitting at the subject level.

This paper, presented as a case study, explores a framework for course design where attainment of standards can be interrogated through assessments tasks, subject design and development which meets the requirements of all stakeholders
