New collection of IDEAS case studies published

The Faculty of Technology, Design and Environment (TDE) has published a compelling series of case studies that shine a spotlight on examples of excellence across the elements of the IDEAS Curriculum model. 

You can explore the entire collection or delve deeper into a particular element of IDEAS by navigating to the dedicated 'IDEAS Element' web pages for direct links to relevant case studies.

If you have your own example of good practice related to IDEAS that you'd like to share with our community, we encourage you to complete the case study submission form. Your insights could inspire others and contribute to the ongoing growth of IDEAS.

Could you play an integral role in creating authentic and meaningful learning experiences for academics?

Oxford Centre for Academic Enhancement and Development (OCAED) is dedicated to enhancing learning and development at Oxford Brookes. Through the application of IDEAS, our curriculum model and design tool, we encourage course design which accommodates and facilitates previously excluded students. 

Our staff learning opportunities must be equitable too. We want to ensure that our activities are designed to support your strengths, break down any barriers to learning and always that our development offer is compassionate towards our diverse academic community. 

With this in mind, we plan to create authentic composite personas based on the lived experiences of our academic community. These personas will be used to inform future educational experiences and developmental opportunities provided by OCAED.  

To create these personas, our educational developers invite you to take part in short confidential interviews about your experiences working at Oxford Brookes. We want to know what enables you to work, what motivates you in your role and if anything worries you or acts as a barrier towards your development. 

These informal confidential interviews will take place throughout September and October 2023, at a time to suit you and your working pattern. You can choose if you would prefer to take part in an online 1:1 chat (approx 20 mins), or join an online group discussion (approx 1 hour). 

To take part, or for further information, please contact Elizabeth Mullenger, (email: Staff-Student Partnership Officer.
