Module Description

The module draws on current thinking in the field of curriculum management (learning, teaching and assessment) and includes material related to contemporary leadership and management issues, focusing on key strategies that are likely to bring about effective learning, teaching and assessment in institutions. The module will explore and evaluate theories of learning and individual learning needs. It will also draw on current thinking in the field of assessment and explore the notions of assessment for and of students’ learning. The wider aspects of assessment will also be discussed, such as accountability to stakeholders and external agencies. Examples of good practice will be used to illustrate aspects of effective leadership and management applied to teaching and learning. These will be drawn from both case studies and from the experience of the teaching team and module participants. The intention is that learning outcomes will have a positive effect on participants’ individual professional practice and will also have a wider impact on their own institution’s performance.
