Curriculum Design at Manchester Metropolitan University

Funded by the: Jisc e-Learning programme.

Lead Institution: Manchester Metropolitan University

Learner Provider Type: Higher Education

Project Duration: September 2008 - July 2012



The Supporting Responsive Curricula (SRC) project was a four-year programme which ended in July 2012. Its purpose was to try to make the institution more responsive to the needs of various stakeholders, notably students, employers and professional bodies. The original aim of the project was to experiment with curriculum changes in four subject areas, Law, Accounting and Finance, Physiotherapy and Creative Digital with initiatives which involved seeking more input from professional bodies and employers to the curriculum but also looking at ways in which students could showcase their capabilities using some form of PDP/e-portfolio. Alongside this subject specific work, the whole curriculum development process was examined with the aim of streamlining the quality assurance process, placing the curriculum in an online database and linking course units more closely to employability measures.
