Curriculum design is influenced by a number of factors. The key aspects to consider are:
- Subject benchmarks
- Professional bodies
- Disciplinary conventions and cultures
As well as these external factors, learning design issues will play a part, such as, how to design individual modules within courses/ programmes so that they provide an integrated and joined-up experience for learners. There may be opportunities and constraints.
