Curriculum & Programme Design

Developing modules and programmes may be part of your teaching role. Here we provide videos and resources on Learning Outcomes (LOs) and Mapping LOs; Module & Programme development; Module Manager (our syllabus software); examples of programmes developed at different levels; and Quality Processes.

Learning Outcomes

The relationship between Learning Outcomes, which are written about individual modules, and the programmes overall objectives is very important.  

Our recordings will look at the links and the importance of ensuring programmes are structured to achieve their overall objectives for the students studying them.

Lecturers will be involved in adhering to or even writing learning outcomes early in their professional experience and it is beneficial to know where to find assistance in structuring learning outcomes.  

These recordings are available on our “Curriculum and Programme Design” Moodle page.
