3.a Departmental Curriculum Development Sessions
Departments that are in the process of revising their existing curricula or are designing new programs (BA or MA) are invited to apply and send a group of their faculty to a new type of CRC session called Departmental Curriculum Development Session. In addition to the regular CRC trainings (in individual course design and teaching methodology), these new sessions would offer workshops in curriculum development, revision and harmonization. Participants will have the opportunity to revise their own individual courses and to coordinate them from the point of view of content, level, approach, learning outcomes, and to jointly design outcomes-based departmental learning grids. In defining the exact content of these sessions we will take into account the specific needs of the applying department.
Timing of these sessions will be between mid-April and end of May, exact timeframe and length of sessions will be agreed upon with selected departments. For the sake of a smooth and quick arrangement of the session, departments are requested to propose more than one timeframe. Interest in a possible session during the 2009 Fall semester can also be signaled on the joint group application form.
The group members need to be selected by the sending department. They all should meet the eligibility criteria of CRC, and should fill out an individual application form. Beside the individual application forms a joint group application form should be filled out and sent with all the application materials, possibly in one e-mail/pack, to the CRC (CEU CRC, 1051 Budapest Nador u. 9, email@example.com).
Following the selection of departments the CRC will contact the group leader and start negotiations on funding and the arrangement of the session.
Funding of Departmental Curriculum Development Sessions
CRC covers all the expenses of the group leader (if from the target region) related to travel and accommodation as well as provides him/her with all the benefits a CRC participant receives (book allowance, stipend). The expenses of the rest of the group should be covered through a matching funds scheme which will be individually discussed with the groups.
