Abstract

The University of Westminster in London, UK is currently undergoing a transition in the structure of the undergraduate courses offered. The purpose of this is to meet the growing expectations of students, and to remain current and competitive in a changing higher education landscape. One of the six strands in the new Learning Futures vision is to situate students as co-creators of knowledge through active participation in learning communities and encourage collaborative partnerships with staff. The poster will demonstrate how the level 4 module Developmental Psychology has been adapted to suit the Learning Futures initiative that aims to increase active participation across a range of learning activities and assessments.
