The 2016-2017 session is the third year that we have worked with Connected Curriculum fellows, seconded members of staff from across UCL leading the implementation of research-based education in their own areas of the institution. This year we’re moving away from introducing and engaging (though inevitably that still might need to happen in some parts of UCL), to measuring, evaluating, and researching the effectiveness of the Connected Curriculum so far. What are the cold spots and hot spots within the institution? Are there any departments that would really benefit from support and guidance? What is the uptake of the existing guidance that has been produced? What is the impact of efforts so far? What else is needed to bring research and education closer together, and to ensure that all students can learn through research-based activities?
This blog will be updated regularly by this year’s CC Fellows. They’ll showcase what they are doing to answer some of the above questions. And I’m sure there will be plenty of opportunity for staff, students, and alumni to get involved. Indeed the UCL Connected Curriculum is a shared endeavour.
Oh, and check out this snappy little animation, which offers a concise introduction to the UCL Connected Curriculum!
