Focused course design

You will need to consider the following issues when designing your programme:

  • Will there be core module that cover the main learning outcomes, or will specialism be encouraged through a range of optional activities?
  • Will each coherent topic or activity form a separate module?
  • Will there be a dissertation, a large project or an element of fieldwork?
  • How will academic literacies and transferable skills be embedded?

Your assessment strategy for the programme should link directly to the ILOs for the programme and individual modules. Students should be given a range of assessments to assess different outcomes, and the assessments should ideally encourage progression of a range of skills through the programme.
