Roles and responsibilities of the module leader
Each module within the university has a module leader designated by the faculty. Module leaders are ultimately responsible for academic leadership, management and assessment, for the modules they have been designated to lead on.
Specific areas of responsibility relating to academic quality management include delivering the module using appropriate teaching and learning and assessment methods, effecting any necessary modifications, communicating information to students. Module leaders are responsible for conducting all monitoring, evaluation and review activity, responding to student feedback and external examiner input, and liaison with collaborative partners. They should be responsive to the national agenda, including Professional, Statutory and Regulatory Body (PSRB) requirements, and engage with peer observation. Module leaders should liaise with programme leaders and other key individuals, as required.
Full details about the module leader role are provided in the university's regulations. Information about the roles and responsibilities of the programme leader is available separately.
