Developing the credit-based modular curriculum in higher education Some full text available
Provides the information that many involved in higher education will need to help see them through post-Dearing curriculum development. The book describes some of the more common credit-based modular systems in practical language, for those institutions who wish to follow the CBMS path. Secondly it identifies the inherent problems that are created by CBMS approaches so that institutions can recognize, confront and overcome these dilemmas. The authors draw on their experience of developing and running one of the most sophisticated credit-based modular systems within the UK to point the way forward in a concise, accessible volume, which also contains standard forms for practical use.

Engaging the curriculum in higher education Some full text available
There is greater interest than ever before in higher education. More money is being spent on it, more students are registered, and more courses are being taught. And yet the matter that is arguably at the heart of higher education, the curriculum, is noticeable for its absence in public debate and in the literature on higher education. This book begins to redress the balance. Even though the term 'curriculum' may be missing from debates on higher education, curricula are changing rapidly and in significant ways. What we are seeing, therefore, is curriculum change by stealth, in which curricula are being reframed to enable students to acquire skills that have market value. In turn, curricula are running the risk of fragmenting as knowledge and skills exert their separate claims. Such a fragmented curriculum is falling well short of the challenges of the twenty-first century. A complex and uncertain world requires curricula in which students as human beings are placed at their centre. What is called for are curricula that offer no less than the prospect of encouraging the formation of human being and becoming. A curriculum of this kind has to be understood as the imaginative design of spaces where creative things can happen as students become engaged. Based upon a study of curricula in UK universities, "Engaging the Curriculum in Higher Education" offers an uncompromising thesis about the development of higher education, and is essential reading for those who care about its future.
