Proposed revisions to the Curriculum Framework

curriculum frameworkTwo new dates of Wednesday 11 October and Thursday 12 October have been added to a series of meetings being run on the proposed revision to the University’s Curriculum Framework. The meetings are being run by Paul Hayes, Pro Vice-Chancellor (Education and Student Experience) and Harriet Dunbar-Morris, Associate Pro Vice-Chancellor (Student Experience).

A commitment in the University’s Education Strategy 2016-2020, is to revise the structure of the academic year, which has now been agreed, and the curriculum framework, where the University wants to adopt differentiated structures at different levels of study to allow, for example, a greater focus on the transition to higher education and the potential for part-year exchanges.

At these open meetings, Paul and Harriet will outline the current proposals for the new Curriculum Framework, but the primary focus of these events is to provide staff with the chance to ask questions and feedback their thoughts. Paul and Harriet are keen to hear the views of staff during these sessions.

There are six events (four sessions are now sold out):

Wed 4 October, 9am-11am, St Andrew’s Court, Room 3.03 – SOLD OUT
Mon 9 October, 11am-1pm, Burnaby Building, Room 2.26 – SOLD OUT
Tue 10 October, 9am-11am, Mildam Building, Room LE1.03 – SOLD OUT
Tue 10 October, 1pm-3pm, St George’s Building, Room 0.2 – SOLD OUT
Wed 11 October, 3pm-5pm, Richmond Building, Room LT2 – Book
Thu 12 October 3pm-5pm, William Beatty Building, room 0.04 – Book

These sessions form part of a number of different consultation events being held during October with faculties, schools, departments and the UPSU. Input from this consultation exercise will fed into the final proposal for the implementation of the revised Curriculum Framework and will be considered by Academic Council in November.

Paul and Harriet are keen to hear the views of staff during these sessions and questions can be submitted in advance to claire.coffin@port.ac.uk.
