Working with Staff

We draw together educational experts from across our University: academic developers, student learning experts, learning technologists and employability consultants. Together, these staff form a unique Programme Design Consultancy that, working with academic leads, designs and underpins our Distinctive Keele Curriculum. It makes tangible the refreshed Education Vision, overseen by PVC Helen O’Sullivan.

Our aim is not to react to educational delivery, or to correct it, but to design it in partnership with programme leaders, students and employers. We are outward facing in our objectives, and work in the spirit of the New Keele Deal to construct a Civic Curriculum that engages with the region and develops collective skills and knowledge.

Curriculum Design Framework

The Keele Curriculum Design Framework sets out the key principles that define good programme design and Teaching Excellence at Keele and provides programmes with a structure to meet the “Keele Fundamentals” of the Education vision.
