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.

ExPERT Academy can support course teams engaged in curriculum development activities, and can offer a range of professional development opportunities for individual staff interested in developing their knowledge and expertise in this area.
