Courses are structured into a set of modules, each with a defined credit value. Here we look at how all these elements might be brought together with the subject content to determine a module structure for the course.
The Development Process
Indicative content description
While it is recognised that for many modules the content will vary each year to suit circumstances and current trends and issues, there should be an underlying description of what each module will always cover to enable students to achieve the module's learning outcomes. This is captured in the 'Indicative content' section within each module specification. Providing an indicative content that is very detailed can restrict flexibility in delivery. Generally, such detail is best reserved for module handbooks and Brightspace presentation.
Course teams are encouraged to adopt a consistent approach to presenting indicative content in their modules.
Remember: if you are redesigning a traditionally delivered course for Block and Blend, you may need to reorder the content within and across modules to ensure progression of skills, knowledge and behaviour through each level.
