Module Enhancement Plans (MEPs)
As part of the De Montfort University (DMU) quality assurance and enhancement processes, every module must be evaluated by the teaching team each academic session. This involves both interim and end of module evaluation, leading to action for enhancement where problems are identified. Drawing upon a defined set of key monitoring information, evaluation occurs via the completion of a Module Enhancement Plan (MEP).
The focus for module enhancement is the element of reflection and evaluation, with the MEP template being a way of recording this. It is a 'live' document, ensuring module enhancement activity is timely and useful, allowing for reflection to be recorded when it occurs. The MEP runs alongside and feeds into the Programme Appraisal and Enhancement (PAE) process.
Module enhancement ensures that:
- The module syllabus is relevant and up to date
- The module template continues to accurately represent the module
- The teaching, learning and assessment approach for the module continues to be effective
- There is a formal opportunity for reflection and evaluation, which might lead to further developments
- Feedback from the teaching team (if appropriate), external examiners and students is promptly responded to
Please contact Louise Salmon with any queries about module enhancement.

The guide to module enhancement details the operation of the process, completion of the MEP, outlining the roles and responsibilities of the Programme Management Board (PMB). This should be read before completing the necessary Module Enhancement Plan (MEP). Separate guidance on using the student performance data required is also available.
