Large scale curriculum redesign conference: continuing the conversation
Following the success of the ALT/AoC one-day conference on large scale curriculum redesign, ALT have organised a follow-up webinar featuring several of the presenters from the event. This will provide an opportunity for further discussion around the subject, with ample time for questions.
Presenters will provide a brief recap of their sessions from the conference, including:
Howard Browes and Bob Harrison - "How a large distributed FE college is using learning technology to bring about large scale organisational change"
Leeds City College is the third largest general FE College in the UK, formed in 2009 on the merger of three Leeds colleges. The college's technology strategy supports 1700 staff and 90,000 student enrolments. The Principal and the Senior Management team have turned to technology to transform learning, kick-starting change in a coherent, consistent and cost effective way. Howard and Bob will share progress and lessons learned so far.
Ciara Duffy - "Virtualisation of South West College Curriculum Offer"
South West College is a large multi-campus merged college that is intent on using Learning Technology to increase the college's reach and effectiveness in a systematic way and on a large scale. The virtualisation curriculum project for South West College involved the provision of an on-line learning experience for 5,655 students for one week in November 2011. During this week students were able to interact with tutors and access a rich variety of resources relating to their course. Ciara Duffy was seconded in to deliver this project against a very tight timescale of 9 months and in this session you will hear about the strategies used and the lessons learnt.
The session will also involve feedback from the recently concluded JISC Curriculum Design programme with input from:
Paul Bartholomew - "From compliance to dialogue. Moving to an iterative curriculum design and approval process"
The JISC-funded Technology-Supported Processes for Agile and Responsive Curricula (T-SPARC) project at Birmingham City University has sought to transform institutional approaches to curriculum design. New processes and technology allow courses to be designed in a more iterative way, creating possibilities for a range of stakeholders to be truly influential in the design process.
