The Coventry University SPRINT; based upon the Google Ventures Sprint; is designed to allow course teams the time, space, and resource to radically reconsider their offering starting bottom-up from the ideal graduate. The CU SPRINT, in its pure form, takes place over five consecutive days to provide completed course specification, a prototype course website, and stakeholder feedback. Variations of this process have been used to design individual modules, online courses, undergraduate, and postgraduate courses.
CU SPRINT Training provides participants with an overview of the CU SPRINT process, explores considerations for delivering CU SPRINT, and provides knowledge and support to run module and course design SPRINTs across the University group. The CU SPRINT has been used to design courses and new educational solutions across all faculties, designing new courses and refreshing existing offerings to great success.
The benefits of the training include:
• Learn to how to deliver your own CU SPRINTs;
• Rapidly develop innovative course/module designs;
• Structure a course-level approach to curriculum design;
• Ensure quality decision making at a curriculum design level;
• Ensure approval to University rules, regulations and guidance;
The training will be particularly useful for individuals involved in curriculum design and/or middle management.
The full CU SPRINT can be used to develop new and existing Higher Education degree courses over a solid four day period. Utilising design thinking principles, it saves time and increases quality.
