Curriculum Enhancement

We work with programme teams in a range of ways to develop and enhance curricula including:

  • Curriculum Festivals - an event to develop new programmes or reinvigorate existing ones. Each festival involves the whole programme team, students, alumni and relevant professional services staff, and is typically followed by a Writing Retreat to consolidate ideas into programme and unit descriptors. Programme Directors participating in this process can access a bespoke leadership programme to support them in leading and making curriculum change.
  • TESTA (Transforming the Experience of Students through Assessment) - a series of events drawing on programme data and student perspectives to develop and enhance summative and formative assessment across a programme.

Our curriculum enhancement work draws on the University of Bristol’s Curriculum Framework and its six connected dimensions which together form a touchstone for curriculum design and enhancement. The Curriculum Framework was co-created with staff across the institution and a small number of students in 2019.
