10 minute talk
To support the development of new programmes at UCL East and the recommendations of the 2020 PGT review, UCL is piloting a holistic approach to its development of new programmes. As part of the preparation for Programme Module Approval Panel a series of workshops have been developed that enable programme teams to work together to discuss and explore the many complexities involved in creating well designed programmes with students at the centre. The programme design workshops integrate the work of other central units including market research, employability /careers and sustainability and lead to the ABC module design. Initially offered as face-to-face workshops, these have been adapted to run online since March 2020 to support the development of 12 UG/PG programmes, one involving 2 student reviewers.
The session will introduce the approach, and drawing upon evaluations, discuss some of the challenges and plans for enhancement.
