The Course Design Intensive (CDI) is a team-based curriculum development process, intended for assessed units of provision from whole degree programmes, or even single modules or units. Typically, the process spans time, from several weeks to several months and involves consultancy and periodic workshops organised by OCSLD.
Identifying key issues to be addressed; what are the current strengths and weaknesses in current format of learning provision.
Analysing the transition in student experience to be undertaken.
One-to-one consultations with learning design experts, what learning activities, assessments or technology-enhanced learning can address these issues?
Sharing experience and identifying existing expertise to be drawn upon.
Linking to the Brookes TEL framework; how does your development link to institutional strategies.
Programme leads are asked to consult directly with workshop facilitators Mark Childs or George Roberts to secure a date.
As a general guide the minimum lead in time for a CDI request is at least 6-8 weeks. This acknowledges the time taken on both sides to organise the logistics for the day.
For workshop purposes, teams can be of any size, however we would suggest as a minimum
The key members of the lecturing team of the programme, a DMELD from within the faculty and if possible the Academic Liaison Librarian for your faculty. Other specialist input (e.g. from OBIS, or academic multimedia production).
