The Programme Development team in the Arena Centre (UCL Education and Student Experience) can assist you in the development of new programmes and modules, as well as the review and redesign of existing ones.

Designing a programme or module

Would you like help to design (or re-design) your academic programme or module(s)? 

Our approach is highly recommended by Programme and Module Approval (PMAP). We offer a range of online or in-person workshops, customised to your needs that comprise stimulating activities and support you in your preparation for PMAP. Our approach throughout focuses on providing a rich and cohesive student experience across programmes. This includes an optional workshop with Student Quality Reviewers to ensure that the student viewpoint is included prior to PMAP submission. Following approval, programme teams are recommended to participate in ABC Learning Design workshops that focus on module design.  

The Programme Development unit advises on UCL guidance and recommendations that can add value to the design process, such as assessment visualisation, activity design, blended modes, employability and sustainability. 

Academic colleagues across UCL have already discovered that this targeted approach helps to clarify the design of programmes, supports the writing of programme and module learning outcomes, assists in identifying key student activities and assessment strategies. Our approach works equally well with existing programmes and modules. 

Please contact the Programme Development team at ProgrammeDesignWorkshopplanning@live.ucl.ac.uk to find out more or to book your team into one of one of our popular workshops 

Programme Design workshop: interactive and tailored workshops that facilitate discussion between members of the programme team around developing a shared vision, structure, learning outcomes, educational approach, assessment strategy and distinctiveness. Completion of activities support the writing PMAP documentation but can also be taken for a review of a programme. Book a Programme Design Workshop 

ABC Learning Design workshop: A fast paced workshop that brings module and programme teams together to develop modules, discuss activities, align assessment and other core UCL themes. Workshops can be taken at any time but often follow PMAP approval. Book an ABC Workshop
