The purpose of the principles is, through the curriculum and delivery of courses, to engage students in high quality learning experiences through learner-centred pedagogies and research-led teaching, which prepare graduates to excel in a diverse and interconnected global society, and to advance the region’s cultural, social and economic development.
We recommend exploring the Ulster Learning Model first as it is the key principle. Ulster’s Learning Model will actively engage the learner in the learning process. Through working closely with academic and support staff, learners will adopt active learning pedagogies, underpinned by appropriate discipline-specific and pedagogic research and scholarship.
Welcome to the Student Learning Experience Principles website. Here you will find information on six principles which underpin the curriculum and delivery of all Ulster courses. These should be useful to you when reviewing courses and/or modules, preparing new programmes or to enhance aspects of the student experience. The Principles bring together the aspirations of a range of existing and developing strategies in a format that is specifically designed to inform curriculum design, delivery and review with an emphasis on how students engage in their learning. Detailed guidance supports the implementation of the Principles with questions to prompt discussion within course teams and identified resources.
