Why have a Curriculum Framework?
Our Teaching and Learning Strategy 2018-21' sets out our two key strategic priorities: To deliver academic excellence and offer students an outstanding learning experience. The curriculum ('what' and 'how' we teach) is central to achieving these priorities.
The Curriculum Framework aims to:
Articulate the distinctiveness of the curriculum and the skills and attributes of the Reading graduate, whilst recognising the primacy of the discipline; act as a catalyst for programme teams working in partnership with students to: take a holistic programme level approach; share existing good practice; and explore creative ways for further enhancing the curriculum.
What is the Curriculum Framework?
The University of Reading Curriculum Framework:
- articulates the knowledge, competencies and skills that we want our graduates to attain;
- establishes a set of academic principles upon which our curriculum is based;
- defines a set of pedagogic principles which underpin our curriculum; and
- aligns with processes for programme design, approval and review.
