Managing Collaborative Provision – a workshop on refreshed guidance by the Department of Academic Quality (DAQ)

If you frequently work with collaborative partners you will be very familiar with the DAQ Guide to Managing Collaborative Provision.  DAQ have recently undergone an exercise of updating this guidance and accompanying forms as part of a continual review exercise to ensure our processes remain relevant as circumstances and practices evolve. Whilst some changes are small scale modifications, others are a revamp of internal procedures.  

 

The Guide is divided into seven sections with the biggest changes pertinent to Section 1 and Section 2.  Colleagues are invited to attend a briefing so that the key features of the changes and new processes can be explained in detail with any queries clarified. The sections are:

 

  • Section 1: Approval of new collaborative partnerships and programmes
  • Section 2: Monitoring collaborative provision
  • Section 3: Making changes to collaborative provision
  • Section 4: Collaborative review
  • Section 5: Closure of collaborative provision
  • Section 6: Forms
  • Section 7: Roles and Responsibilities in the management of collaborative provision

 

This session will be delivered by the Department of Academic Quality.

 

Bookings: To register your interest please contact Uzma Ali (x8136) and provide an indication of which section of the guide would be of most interest

Personal Tutoring: Efficient & Effective Student Support

Supporting DMU students through their University experience is an exciting but challenging experience within any academic’s career.  It can often be an opportunity to make a real difference to the lives of individual students but occasionally it can also be difficult and time–consuming. Whether you are a Personal Tutor, a module leader, teaching staff or from DMU support services a well–implemented student support framework can make that difference.  By planning the personal and professional development of your students in many instances you can help them anticipate issues rather than you acting as their problem solver or crisis manager.

 

DMU undergraduate and postgraduate students are a diverse population that require academic, personal and developmental support. Our agenda to widen participation access has brought students with a greater range of support needs through to DMU. Providing efficient and effective student support can do much to enhance the student experience, helping to improve retention, progression and completion. This workshop will provide a supportive environment where new and existing Personal Tutors, module leaders, teaching staff and support services can explore key issues influencing the delivery of student support best practice.
