Using LMI for Course Design
In association with the QAA
Wednesday 11th December 2019
Venue: UK College of Business and Computing (UKCBC), Eastgate House, 40 Dukes Place, London EC3
A lot of good work goes on within universities to align programme portfolios with local and regional labour markets as a way to underpin strong graduate outcomes, and Labour Market Insight (LMI) often features in a university’s business case during the validation process.
The third and fourth guiding principles for course design and development in the QAA’s Quality Code set out a framework for referencing employers, professional bodies and other external stakeholders as a way of ensuring the ‘continuing relevance of curricula, assessment methods and teaching approaches’.
At this workshop event, we will be:
- Hearing from the QAA on the key areas to focus on when designing courses,
- Sharing current practice of how LMI is being used in course design and development,
- Examining which data can be applied when in designing the teaching of a programme,
- Looking to the future of LMI, skills data innovation and international insights.
As well as being relevant for your own institution, Using LMI for Course Design event may also be useful for partner institutions delivering franchised programmes who can be empowered to make changes within the module frameworks that better aligns the provision to the local labour market for their students.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND:
This free event is targeted at those with responsibility for Teaching & Learning, either centrally or from within schools; those providing data to academic colleagues, such as Market Insight Managers; and those responsible for Quality Assurance.
