12 INTRODUCTION How can this route map help me? This route map has been produced to aid staff preparing for Curriculum Review at Queen Margaret University. It is a guide to the processes involved and provides links to internal and external reference points which will inform the work of the programme team. As you will readily see from the route map, there is an enormous amount of information directly relevant to the process of curriculum review, as well as considerable amounts of useful, indirectly related material. One of the ways you could use this route map is to assign a branch-line to each member of the team to research.

13 AIM OF CURRICULUM REVIEW Aim of review Programmes are validated for a maximum period of five years, whereupon they are subject to review. This is an opportunity to reconsider the relevance and market for the programme, as well as to present for approval any major changes to the programme. These may be the result of changed environmental circumstances, feedback from students or other stakeholders or new institutional or government initiatives. In summary, you should use the review process to reflect on what has and hasn’t worked and to decide what changes (if any) you wish to make for the future.

14 ROLES & RESPONSIBILITIES The review is a team approach Those involved in a review include: Programme team Deans of School and Heads of Division Panels Quality Enhancement Unit Centre for Academic Practice Professional and Regulatory Bodies A detailed description of the roles and responsibilities of each of the above is provided in the following validation & review handbook: QMU: guidance notes for programme teamsQMU: guidance notes for programme teams

15 REGULATIONS Summary The regulations laid out in the linked document below contain all the detail required to ensure that new programme proposals and programme reviews fit with: The University’s quality processes External statutory and regulatory requirements The University’s strategic planning process, and development and review timetable.

16 GUIDANCE NOTES Summary The link below takes you to a booklet which is designed to accompany the formal regulations for programme review. This document provides you with a practical outline of the processes and procedures involved in the review. QMU Link: QMU: guidance notes for programme teamQMU: guidance notes for programme team

17 SUGGESTED TEMPLATE FOR REVIEW DOCUMENT A guide for programme teams You may approach your review document any way you like as long as it does what it is intended to do: i.e. as long as it provides a clear and critical evaluation of the success of the programme since the last time it was reviewed, and provides a way of showing how decisions about the programme have been made. None the less, it is often useful to have a template to follow to help make sure you have covered all the necessary information. A suggested template can be found at the link below to provide a starting point for your document.
