“Curriculum development – good enough for Kings”
Presented by: Dr Deesha Chadha
Programme lead, PGCAPHE (KLI) - King's College London
*Lunch will be provided for those who book, so please let us know if you have any specific dietary requirements.
This seminar is aimed at exploring curriculum design decisions for the postgraduate certificate in academic practice in higher education (PGCAPHE) at King’s College London. As academic practice programmes are relatively new in the UK the premise that has informed their design and delivery is still being negotiated. A number of factors influence the curriculum design, and these factors are both external, namely the higher education academy (HEA) framework professional standards framework and internal, namely institutional postgraduate experience survey (PTES) scores. In this seminar, Dr Chadha will discuss how such factors influence the programme and how, in particular they have altered the nature of the PGCAPHE at King’s College London.
