2 Planning Document and Financial Schema

3 Framework Specification Must be understandable to all Adapt to different approaches to Networked (or conventional) Learning Identify and classify hidden costs Categorise existing costs to avoid misallocation of expenditure

4 Constraints Many academics refuse to accept that teaching can be costed Emerging sectoral (UK) cost frameworks Should build on the best of previous work Model must be pedagogically sound yet acceptable to accountants

5 Building on other Approaches There are about six models to consider From Education and Training From the UK, States and Europe Some paper based others computational Must be pedagogically sound but resonate with financial planners

6 Overview of Model Based on an underlying general theory of course development Can be represented as diagram For practical use Spreadsheets operate at several levels of detail Three stakeholders - students, staff and institutions

10 Overhead Apportionment Intent is to build on existing work including KPMG More relevant at departmental level Must include analysis of: – Space utilisation including people e.g. security – ICT support “move towards activity apportionment”

11 Hidden Costs At the detailed level the model has made explicit student related hidden costs and the cost of staff’s own time and facilities At the top-level the model does not make explicit the hidden costs of activities and overhead (mis) apportionment

12 Next steps Consultation with experts Model will be refined Report by 1st July Annexes by end of summer
