The PCUTL team engage actively with CU’s Inclusive Curriculum agenda.
The new suite of modules has been specifically designed to be inclusive with respect to both delivery and assessment with the concept of inclusion mainstreamed within the programme’s taught workshops.
The PCUTL team invited the Technology-enhanced education unit in REGOS to critique proposed developments to the PCUTL programme with respect to mainstreaming inclusive practice. The PCUTL Team and Technology Enhanced Education Change Champion created embedded requirements for active engagement with technology through each of the new modules. In a move away from previous practice, TEE will not form the basis of a standalone workshop, but shall instead underpin the whole programme through formative coursework.
With respect to Assessment, it was decided that the existing emphasis on the topics of assessment and feedback within the programme should remain unchanged. However adjustment to the module structure has enabled different forms of formative assessment to be introduced that enhance the overall alignment, accessibility and inclusiveness of PCUTL’s assessment practices. The new module structure also enabled the emphasis of the group project element of the Programme to be more specifically focused on issues around assessment and module design – both topics that are crucial to the creation of aligned learning experiences for students.
