Learning@Lunch – ‘Collegiality and creativity in curriculum changes’

Tuesday 24 October, 12.00 – 1.00 pm, University Place, Room 4.204

Reducing over assessment of students is a key goal for the University. Dr Jane Brooks and Joanne Timpson will give an overview on how they worked collaboratively to achieve this in the undergraduate BNursing programme by creating a 20 credit unit. The underlying principal was to create a more streamlined assessment load across each year of the programme and reduce assessment burden to the students and staff. By amalgamating the two units this:

  • addressed the students’ feedback comments
  • enabled flexibility to support student academic transitions
  • gave space to explore professional learning in a developmental and supportive manner.
