Curriculum Design


The Course Design Guide has been created to support staff involved in the curriculum design and validation processes. It brings together definitive information about course design at Sheffield Hallam University.

Whatever your experience, this practical guide is intended to support you and your course / programme team make the most of the opportunity to plan and develop your course. It focuses on the design stage of the course design and validation process and provides useful up-to-date information to support those with a role in creating and refreshing courses. It also incorporates references to faculty-based information and resources.

The guide takes you from is first steps, through the design and approval processes and to the requirements for periodic review. The guide aims to ensure that the design of our courses and programmes takes into account the University’s priorities and ensures that they encompass national, professional and university requirements and expectations.
