Why universities are increasingly seeing curriculum management as the foundation of agility, transformation and long-term success
Professor Alison Honour, Deputy Vice-Chancellor, Canterbury Christ Church University

With a university’s curriculum being one of its most valuable assets, it can come as little surprise that the Higher Education Reference Model (HERM) has curriculum management up front and centre as a core capability and at the heart of its data reference model. This session, led by Professor Alison Honour, Deputy Vice-Chancellor at Canterbury Christ Church University, will reference real-world examples to explore how innovative curriculum management approaches and solutions form the foundations of Higher Ed success – enabling universities to undertake meaningful change, deliver real benefit, support long-term agility and income diversification from a high-quality product.
