This report outlines the conclusions of the Learning & Teaching Thematic Peer Group “Curriculum and assessment”, which examined how to embed digitally enhanced learning and teaching (DELT) and digital technologies in the curriculum, and how to design and manage coherent digital assessment so that it truly reflects intended learning outcomes, is engaging, diverse, high quality, and aligned with the curriculum. This report highlights the multiple facets of curriculum and assessment in a digital environment, as well as challenges met by higher education institutions across Europe – such as reaching equity for all students, designing effective institutional strategies to embed DELT into curriculum, supporting teachers in experimenting and innovating with digital teaching, embedding assessment as integral part of curriculum, and developing students’ and teachers’ assessment literacy. The report also provides recommendations to HEIs for addressing such challenges, considering the pandemic context but also beyond it. The group was organised in the context of the “Supporting European universities in their strategic approaches to digital learning” (DIGI-HE) project and EUA’s Learning & Teaching activities.
