Supporting the process
Engaged teachers are crucial in the IoC process, it is key to select those who are ready and willing.
By involving students as partners in the IoC process, you will ensure the curriculum reflects their ideals and expectations. Students are our greatest resource.
Support services need to be engaged so as to anchor and support the formal curriculum. Find out how we do it here.
In order to integrate the IoC process holistically, be mindful of how you are going to be working with your institution's Unit for Teaching and Learning.
Communication is key in a project
By communicating a project internally and externally in a consistent and structured way, you will strengthen knowledge of the project development but also create awareness and engagement.
