How to Design a Course

The vision for course design at NTU is one that is collaborative, innovative, and where courses are designed that fit NTU’s strategy.

We are currently in the process of reviewing and revising the ways in which we design and develop courses at NTU. A key aim of the course lifecycle project is to increase the focus on innovation in course design. You can find out more about this project here.

There are several stages in designing a course to meet NTU standards. CADQ takes an enhancement-led approach to quality to continually improve NTU’s offer and the learning experiences of students.

Each of the stages in our current process are detailed below:

Refreshing the Curriculum

Via the Curriculum Refresh Project, all NTU courses reviewed their alignment to the Strategic Plan as part of the Periodic Course Review Process.

All New courses are expected to follow this framework. On this page, you will find information about how this process works, and links to ideas and resources to support this activity.
