Learning Programme Design

Learning Programme Design


When planning programmes, an English department/faculty needs to have at its fingertips a comprehensive analysis of the diverse learning needs of the students concerned. Although quite different programmes may answer the purpose, all effective programmes in senior English:

  • are designed to address student needs
  • are coherent and have meaning for students
  • support a broad vision and goals (these may be school-wide goals or relate to community, special character, curriculum concepts, competencies, values, etc)
  • include content and contexts that students will connect with their wider lives
  • facilitate collaborative learning
  • offer students an element of choice
  • are tied into appropriate curriculum objectives
  • generate authentic opportunities for assessment
  • set up assessment so that it will inform further learning.

“In curriculum planning there needs to be emphasis on skills for our future society. These should include much greater emphasis on information technology, new forms of work, multicultural and globalised society and business, and environmental issues. Because the rate of change is now so great, these issues need to be reflected in current secondary and tertiary curriculum. They need to reflect changes in work patterns and philosophies, the growing cultural pluralism of our society, our increasing focus on Asian markets, and environmental and technological changes.” 

Developing learning programmes is an essential skill for outcomes-based assessors and educators. This course provides the framework for designing programmes right from the inception of learning outcomes through to the creation and evaluation of the learning programme. A crucial part of programme development is designing programmes according to defined learning needs by analysing and designing programmes accordingly. This course focuses on designing and developing programmes tailor-made to accommodate different learning needs.
