Enhancing the Curriculum Toolkit

Enhancing the Curriculum Toolkit

A new toolkit has been launched to support university lecturers share ’tried and tested’ teaching techniques that enable students to develop skills and confidence, ready for their future careers.

The new Enhancing the Curriculum Toolkit has been developed by the University of South Wales, led by Emma Forouzan in the Faculty of Business & Society, and funded by the Higher Education Funding Council for Wales (HEFCW).

The toolkit supports teaching staff to develop skills and confidence in their learners, by sharing practical teaching guides and subject specific case studies from a number of universities.

QAA Subject Benchmarking

Building upon the UK Quality Assurance Agency (QAA) Subject Benchmarking, the toolkit has identified the enterprise skills that can be developed within each subject discipline.

The subject areas included in the toolkit are: Agricultural and Veterinary; Creative; Humanities; Business, Law and Accounting; Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths, Health; Architecture and Built Environment.

Together they cover the 78 QAA Subject Benchmark Statements for university subjects. The toolkit contains over 100 guides for inspirational teaching, contributed by 50 educators from over 20 institutions, as well as links to useful resource materials already curated by higher education organisations.

Case Studies

The resources are designed to be clear and accessible across all subject areas. Recommended group sizes and learning environments are covered in the guides, while details about objectives, activities, impact and learner outcomes are explored in more depth in the case studies.
