The Distinctive Keele Curriculum: Making it Happen

Length of Programme: 2 hours

About the Workshop:

We want our graduates to succeed and Keele’s educational programmes and learning environment help students become well rounded, distinctive graduates who are capable of making a positive and valued contribution in a complex and rapidly changing world, whichever spheres of life they engage in after their studies are completed. As one leading educationalist describes the importance of this:

‘We live in a world where change is exponential and we are helping to prepare students for jobs that don’t yet exist, using technologies that have not yet been invented, in order to solve problems that we don’t know are problems yet. In short, we have a responsibility to prepare our students for a lifetime of uncertainty, change, challenge and emergent or self-created opportunity’. (Professor Norman Jackson, quoted in Arti Kumar, Personal, Academic and Career Development in Higher Education Routledge: 2007 p. xi).

This workshop will look at the developments which make up the DKC and then explore what happens next.  How do we make the vision of the DKC a reality and what does this mean for staff and students? 

Participants:

This workshop is suitable for anybody who wants to find out more about the DKC, in particular for those staff involved with students.
