Programme Development projects provide an opportunity to examine current practices and conventions within Programmes, Departments and Schools - in relation to learning, teaching and support. Our approach focuses on three main areas: Values and Principles, Defining Learning Outcomes and Standards as set out in the Academic Handbook. A Resource Pack has been developed in order to assist staff in addressing programme redesign - Cardiff Metropolitan University staff can access this resource by clicking here.
Cardiff Met is currently developing a number of Open Educational Resources (OERs). For further information, please click here
A central aspect of Cardiff Met's approach to Programme Design was facilitated by the Gwella initiative (a Welsh word meaning improvement/enhancement). A number of Programme and Module Leaders worked very closely with LTDU to lead changes to the delivery of whole or key elements of their programmes. Please click here for more information on these collaborative Programme Redesign/Gwella projects between LTDU and School staff. A booklet has also been produced - illustrating the developments undertaken as part of the Gwella initiative. Please click here to access a PDF version of the booklet.
"Programme design is often a creative, and often, innovative activity. The process used by institutions to approve, monitor and review academic programmes should foster creativity and encourage a culture of continuous enhancement of provision."
