Internationalising the Postgraduate Curriculum: a Ten year Case Study

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

We describe the experience of creating and developing a postgraduate computing provision, in response to a set of different learning needs from large cohorts of students recruited from the Indian Sub-continent. Amongst a number of changes to the curriculum and deliv-ery, two particular aspects of the teaching stand-out in terms of their contribution to enhancement. First, a shift in emphasis to teach soft-ware design over implementation. Second, a delivery ethos was modi-fied to encourage professional development through the facilitation of student-led curricula, leading to a considerable improvement in student participation. Over the course of a ten-year period, student attainment and engagement increased significantly.
