In episode eight of our online radio programmes – we are exploring curriculum design and the role technology plays in supporting changes to organisational practices and processes.  The focus is on the different approaches to curriculum change and engaging stakeholders of two universitiesinvolved in the JISC Institutional Approaches to Curriculum Design programme – Birmingham City University (BCU) and Manchester Metropolitan University (MMU).

Kim Catcheside talks to staff and students at both universities about their experiences.  This includes an interview with Sonia Hendy-Isaac, a senior lecturer at Birmingham City University who explains how the T-SPARC project has been developing a framework which facilitates better dialogue and transparency around course design and approval to enable more agile and responsive curricula.  Kim also talks to Professor Mark Stubbs, Head of Learning and Research Technologies at Manchester Metropolitan University about transformational changes to the curriculum there and the role of Supporting Responsive Curricula project in supporting this.   Project Manager, Peter Bird, discusses how some of these system and process changes are enabling academic staff to focus more on teaching and Professor Kevin Bonnet, Deputy Vice-Chancellor for Student Experience, explains the business imperative for change at the institution.

    Hi there,
    Might be my error, but is the URL for the mp3 download pointing at Episode 7, rather than 8?

    Nice post. I learn something totally new and challenging on blogs I stumbleupon on a daily basis. It’s always helpful to read through articles from other authors and practice a little something from their sites. |

    A VPN is a virtual private network, which generally is used to supply a secure tunnel across an insecure public network. The largest of these is of course the web, and a VPN is the main way of ensuring privacy and some security when using this vast, world-wide shared network.

    There are many different types of waterfalls in various sizes that can help you create the perfect place of peace right in your own backyard.
    These lines can be created from your home or edging. If you are new to organic gardening you might be surprised that no damaging is actually being done
    to your fruits and flowers even if a strange battle is snacking
    on your leaves.
