13 “Working with industry and professional partners is something RGU attaches great importance to in order to ensure the continued relevance of what we do. The relationship between the Department of Information Management and Amor Group has been enormously beneficial to both sides. We have benefited from strong industry input to our teaching and knowledge exchange activities and practitioners have had an opportunity to benefit from expertise within the University. The relationship has led to some imaginative developments, not least the Information Management Energy Forum. Through the forum, industry and the university came together to identify training needs and developmental gaps; this led to the creation of the Document Control Foundation course, a bespoke module highly-relevant to industry needs, which has attracted more students than any other RGU professional development short course.” Professor Peter Reid, Professor of Librarianship and Head of Department of Information Management, RGU I am happy to endorse Amor as an organisation committed to the development and promotion of information management and particularly its support for IM professional networking, evidence–based research and service improvement and its contribution to the development of training and career progression in IM. This has been evident in our collaboration during the KTP project and in our current collaboration agreement. Dr. Laura Muir, Senior lecturer in the department of Information Management with departmental responsibility for knowledge exchange activity. She is also Course Leader for the MBA Information Management course and the Document Control Foundation short course




17 "I have worked in Document Control for over 2 years now, initially in an Aviation company and more recently for an Oil & Gas company. This course has educated me further on many aspects of my day-to-day job which I already feel is giving me a greater understanding of why what I am doing is so important. The advantages of me already working in a Document Control department for an Oil company meant that I could relate every topic to my current role and for this reason this course was a complete success and very much worth my while.“ (Gemma Morrison) "I decided to take this course to open up more possibilities in the job market for me following my move abroad. Being online I was able to access the course whenever I wanted to dip in and out of the topics. It gave a sound introduction and each stage was clear with good notes and diagrams. I liked being able to go over the material again and again to ensure I was ready to take each assessment. Any queries I had were swiftly answered so I felt supported throughout and even afterwards. I feel I have learnt a lot about the procedures, documents and terminology on this course and it will be of great benefit to me both now and for the future and I can thoroughly recommend it." (Jo Higham) – Jo is now in a Document Control position in Norway! “I am extremely glad that I decided to pursue this course as it has given me an insight into DC and gained an understanding of the oil and gas industry which I was honestly clueless about. I have to say that studying the notes and sitting for the assessments was quite a challenge for me after being out of it for about 25 years but I once I got into the swing of things and set the pace and a target, there was no stopping. Well, it has been a pleasure.” (Correen Rozario) “Although I have been in document control for many years, I learnt new information, which I can hopefully pass onto my fellow document controllers / TA's.” (Alison Brock) “I really enjoyed participating in this course. It was really informative, and has surprised me at how much I still had to learn. Although I am currently employed in Document Control, I was amazed at the information that I had forgotten or simply did not know. This course has been very beneficial and I will recommend it to others.” (Lee-Anne Middleton)
