Video editing, animation and infographics by Mhairi Longmuir, for the University of the Highlands and Islands.
The purpose of this video is to provide an overview of the work that the University of the Highlands and Islands has undertaken in connection with the ‘Developing and Supporting the Curriculum’ enhancement theme, our reflections on this work and how we have utilised this in the forward arrangements for academic delivery across the University. The University of the Highlands and Islands has a distinctive constitutional structure, comprising of 13 autonomous independent Colleges and specialist institutions, – known as the Academic Partners – together with a central Executive Office. These entities are bound together to form the University of the Highlands and Islands. The Academic Partners are dispersed across the Highlands and Islands of Scotland and beyond, from Shetland in the north to Perth and Argyll in the south and from the Western Isles to Moray. They also vary in size and focus, but taken together the University of the Highlands and Islands (UHI) has been able to deliver the Developing and Supporting the Curriculum enhancement theme within a tertiary environment.
