Roles and responsibilities in managing collaborative provision
DMU programme leaders/link tutors and partner institution co-ordinators have clearly defined responsibilities in managing collaborative provision, encompassing academic leadership, programme management, assessment, and liaison.
The DMU programme leader retains oversight of quality and responsibility for the verification of standards. Other duties and responsibilities may be devolved to the partner institution programme co-ordinator. The Programme Management Board (PMB) shall determine the extent to which responsibilities are devolved, depending upon the nature of the collaborative arrangement.
Additional guidelines on cross-site moderation are also available for staff involved in the assessment of cross-institution modules, such as DMU module leaders and collaborative partner staff. These guidelines cover setting assignments, cross-site internal moderation, sampling, and external moderation.
Guidance on how faculty and university-level committees are responsible for the planning and quality assurance of collaborative provision can be found within the guide to managing collaborative provision. These activities are represented in an annual quality monitoring calendar which provides an overview of the key tasks that must be undertaken each year in consultation with the partner, detailing who is responsible for each aspect.
