Leading Team-based Curriculum Design Workshops

To support Revalidation Unit Coordinators (UC) and Course Directors (CD) preparing for the evaluation/revalidation of Programmes in AY 2021/22, CHERP in partnership with Central Departments, will be running three core workshops during Semester II, 2021.

The workshops aim to facilitate course leaders through Ulster’s Integrated Curriculum Design Framework (ICDF).

The accompanying ICDF workshops are designed to be practice-based and active in nature with action plans and outputs produced during each workshop that will contribute to the continual development of the revalidation documentation.

The three workshops focus on the phases of the ICDF Framework.

Support can be tailored to meet local design needs, led by CHERP Faculty Curriculum Consultant (with support from Curriculum Theme Leads in Central Departments).
