There is no ‘one size fits all’ in learning development but it is important that we as Learning Developers share good practice and innovation where possible. Such “interprofessional collaboration”, during both curriculum design and delivery, is central in creating a holistic student experience in learning development (Schneider, Kelsall & Webster, 2015). This workshop aims to explore ways of designing a progressive learning development curriculum which enhances the student journey throughout their degree programme. Using two case studies as a starting point, the participants will be guided in evaluating their own provision before mapping out ways in which they can move forward. They will use a template based on the principles required for the successful embedding and scaffolding of academic skills and graduate attributes. Individual and group activities followed by discussion will be used to facilitate exploration of possibilities within different institutional models in which Learning Developers can be fully integrated with subject colleagues, working as consultants or dependent on specific invitation.
