IDEAS is a curriculum model and design tool that will support programme teams at Oxford Brookes with inclusive, digitally enabled curriculum development. By ensuring the five elements of IDEAS are central to what and how we teach, we will:
- Make our curriculum more attractive and relevant to a diverse range of prospective students.
- Ensure progression and good outcomes for all students, achieving the commitments and milestones of our Access and Participation Plan 2020-25.
- Produce graduates who create positive social impact.
In short, the model embodies the philosophy of Education for Sustainable Development in “allowing every human being to acquire the knowledge, skills, attitudes and values necessary to shape a sustainable future” (UNESCO 2014).
