Invited Speakers Session 5: Using Learning Technology to transform a whole university's curriculum -- 509 -- Invited Speaker

09:00 - 10:00 on Thursday, 13 September 2012 in Main Theatre

Manchester Metropolitan University (MMU) is in the middle of an ambitious three-year large-scale change programme to transform its undergraduate curriculum through four interlinked strands of activity:

  1. New curriculum framework
  2. New administrative processes and systems
  3. New learning technologies
  4. New quality assurance and enhancement processes

Coordinated activity across the four strands enabled over 850 first year module specifications to be entered, reviewed, approved, set up in the student records system, timetabled and populated in a new VLE in 12 months. Learning Technology is at the heart of these changes. Mark Stubbs, who is leading the programme, reporting to MMU's Deputy Vice Chancellor for the Student Experience, will provide delegates with a “report from the field”, summarising:

* progress to date;

* lessons learned;

* pointers for others.
