Specialist advice and guidance is available throughout each stage of your curriculum review and development. This page outlines some of the key sources of support available.
The role of the Centre for Learning and Teaching
There are four teams within the CLT. The Curriculum Development team’s primary role is to act as facilitators, providing expertise and advice to guide each course through the process of curriculum development. Each academic department has identified a member of academic staff to oversee transformational change of their curricula, supported by course development teams. Additional expert support has been provided by Academic Registry and the Faculty Assistant Registrars. We have ensured that the overall approach is flexible in order to adapt to the different requirements of each subject area. During later phases, staff may wish to additionally consult with other CLT teams for specialist support and advice.
A Curriculum Development Officer has been assigned to provide specific support to each Faculty and Student Engagement theme. Full engagement with your designated CDO is paramount to the success of each Faculty and course curriculum redesign project. Follow the link above for contact details.
We work closely with staff and with the SU Bath to facilitate this goal. For more information on how to engage students, academic reps, SSLCs, change champions, annual student surveys, and unit evaluations and feedback, please get in touch.
If you are interested in educational innovation, have a specific learning and teaching challenge (for example, effectively teaching large groups, providing more timely feedback, etc.), or are simply interesting in what technology can do for you and want to know how others are using it, then contact the TEL team.
Advice and guidance from other Professional Services
Professional Services across the University can provide essential input and expertise for the design and development of courses. Engagement between Course Development Teams and Professional Services has been built into all phases of the Transformation process and ongoing conversation and consultation is recommended.
