#jisccdd Celebrating Success and Continuing the Journey

Selected tweets from the last JISC Curriculum Design Programme meeting, 22-23 May, 2012, Birmingham (http://www.jisc.ac.uk/whatwedo/programmes/elearning/curriculumdesign/programmemtgmay2012.aspx).


  1. For the last meeting of this four year programme, the focus of the two days was to share and celebrate the highs (and lows) of the projects; share plans around ensuring sustainability o projects and their outputs both within their institutions and the wider educational community. This twitter summary hopefully gives flavour of the presentations and discussions that took place.
  2. Unfortunately Sarah Knight, JISC programme manager, couldn't join the meeting in person however, she was able to virtually open the meeting and give an overview of the programme, from the original call to the growing number of outputs including blog posts, tweets, conference papers and of course the Design Studio ( http://jiscdesignstudio.pbworks.com/w/page/12458422/Welcome%20to%20the%20Design%20Studio ) where outputs from the programme are showcased.
  3. Supported by the programme critical friends, the projects have formed three cluster groups which have provided a supportive environment for sharing common issues, developing practice and developing peer support. The first session provided an overview from each cluster key lessons learned in the cluster topic areas of organisational change, business processes and educational principles/curriculum design practice.
  4. First up was cluster A, who shared their experiences of creating and developing business processes. Mark Stubbs from the SRC project started off.
  5. Mark Stiles then shared experiences from the Enable project at Staffordshire University.
