What is Curriculum Redesign?
At the core, it is about working with college/school and department administrators and faculty to re-align our degree programs. Consider how we might:
- prepare our learners for the workforce and for a lifetime of learning
- provide opportunities for experiential learning
- go beyond the current curriculum and experiment with new learning models
What can we do to help your department redesign your curriculum?
We work with departmental faculty over time as the project develops. We personalize our service to meet your evolving needs including:
Develop a picture of current curriculum
We can work with department faculty and staff to map your curriculum and discover where and how you might better offer students the 21st century knowledge and skills they need to succeed… AND give them a clear and integrated pathway through the degree program.
Introduce new options
We bring relevant models of new approaches, methods, and technologies that may offer your students better and more flexible learning opportunities. Working with our state-of-the-art development studio, we can develop varieties of technology-enhanced classes that give the faculty and their students more flexibility and fun without sacrificing quality or rigor.
Provide information about student outcomes
We can poll your alumni and gather information from current students and key employers, to help you develop a complete picture of student success. We offer statistics that track what has happened to your department’s graduates 1, 5, and 10 years out in terms of graduate degrees, general occupation, and salaries.
Navigate institutional rules and policies
We come equipped with an understanding of those University, UT System, state, and federal regulations that restrict what can be done with classes, credits, and the calendar, as well as those constraints that are changing. We will help departments develop plans that are realistic and achievable, and will challenge University offices to revise policies that hinder innovative approaches.
Advise on new business models
We will share evolving work and opportunities created by Texas Extended Campus to find new audiences of students and broaden the reach of the department’s offerings. We can also build technology-enhanced courses that could serve as revenue sources.
