Q1: What is Curriculum Management?

A1: We have defined it as the management of: the curriculum records, the lifecycle of our provision, the strategic record of the provision we deliver, the processes that support all of this, the roles and responsibilities to ensure delivery of our curriculum and the governance framework that brings all this together.

Q2: What does provision mean?

A2: We use the term provision to mean all courses that we run as a university so includes programmes (Undergraduate and postgraduate), modules and credit bearing/non credit bearing short courses

Q3: Will SITS still be used?

A3: Yes, SITS is still our student record system and ensures we deliver our provision.  However the online module descriptor task and process in SITS e:Vision will be replaced by the new system but will be extended to include provision management.

Q4: So what about Programme Specification Word documents?

A4: The word templates provided through the Quality Framework will be replaced by the curriculum management system ensuring staff always have access to the latest version of the provision information and it can be integrated with downstream processes and systems

Q5: Is there a link between modules and programmes (provision)?

A5: Yes the system allows staff to navigate from a module to related provision it is taught on or from the provision record see what modules are taught on that provision 

Q5: I hear the new system has mapping capabilities- what does this mean?

A5: The system ensures we capture the learning outcomes for modules and provision and provides the links between them.  This can then be reviewed/output as required for design/approval/accreditation purposes.

Q5: My programme (provision) has professional accreditation​ how will this be captured?

A5: The system allows us to enter a professional body framework and show how the modules/provision meet/map to those requirements.  All the current professional bodies are being collated and entered into the system for launch.  ​
