Theme 2: Programme, Curriculum & Course Design
Why is the Programme, Curriculum and Course Design a precondition for a successful collaboration for institutions?
Education providers have a responsibility to develop relevant curricula and well-organized programmes, identifying learning outcomes that equip graduates with the knowledge, skills and competences that they will need in the professional, technical and occupational field they are studying for.
Rapid labour market changes mean it is essential that employers participate in programme content and design, including the identification of relevant skills and opportunities for work based learning.
It is also important that students are fundamentally involved in their educational experience, including opportunities for meaningful feedback, consultation and evaluation; and effecting change and improvement when necessary.
The multiple perspectives generated by providers, employers and students working together and sharing ideas can yield rich proposals for improving curricula and courses and developing new programmes for the benefit of the individual, society and the economy. The strategic partnership triangle is continuously engaged in systematic, meaningful conversations and the sharing of ideas and strategies with each other to enhance the quality of learning and the student experience.
