The SOLSTICE model is based around three elements that combine to generate a creative, supportive and enhanced approach to curriculum design whether at programme, module or learning object level.
Curriculum design focuses on the alignment of Purpose (learning) with the unique situated characteristics of learners and teachers (Audience) and the Form of teaching to ensure that learning is informed but not driven by the application of technology. A learner-focused framework thus supports colleagues to apply the concept to their curriculum design.
Teams of academics, learning technologists and information professionals come together to make the SOLSTICE concept a reality. Team capacity building is supported by the SOLSTICE Fellowship Scheme, where in addition to running individual fellowship projects, Fellows act as champions of technology within their Faculty or Service area and provide a rich source of expertise and leadership.
SOLSTICE is governed from within the Centre for Learning and Teaching (CLT) as a hub for creative thinking and practices, development and support.
