|Title:||Design of the curriculum for a second-cycle course in civil engineering in the context of the Bologna framework||Authors:||Gavin, Kenneth||Permanent link:||http://hdl.handle.net/10197/4101||Date:||17-Feb-2010||Abstract:||This paper describes the design of the curriculum for a Master of Engineering programme in civil engineering at University College Dublin. The revised programme was established to meet the requirements of the Bologna process and this paper specifically considers the design of a new, second-cycle master's component of the programme. In addition to considering the content required to meet the learning outcome specified by the professional accreditation body, the paper presents details of attempts to move from a traditional instructor-centred model to a student-centred model of education in order to promote reflective (deep) learning. Although the paper presents a model curriculum for a civil engineering programme, the holistic approach to curriculum design outlined, which considers the organisation, sequence and evaluation strategies adopted, is applicable to all subject areas in higher education||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Taylor and Francis||Copyright (published version):||2010 SEFI||Keywords:||Bologna process; Civil engineering; Curriculum; Reflective learning||DOI:||10.1080/03043790903511086||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed|
