Module amendments and module archiving

The following is intended as a brief guide to direct proposers through their proposal. Full details can be found in Section 6 of the Senate Code of Practice on Curriculum Approval and Review.

Senior staff from the Academic Office conduct an initial scrutiny of all curriculum revisions proposals to determine whether these require formal consideration by the relevant Subcommittee or if they can be implemented without further reference, for example, where proposals concern:

• changes to section 5 of the MDF concerning module restrictions
• changes to section 6d of the MDF concerning specialist learning resources
• changes to section 8 of the MDF concerning learning activities
• archiving of modules
• limited additions/deletions to lists of designate modules on CSFs

A guide setting out which types of proposal can be implemented in this way is available here.

Changes to module leadership and updates to indicative reading lists do not require formal approval and can be updated at any time by the Module Leader via the Manage My Curriculum facility on e-vision.

Amendments to existing modules

Where a modification is proposed to an existing Module Definition Form (excluding Module Leader and Key texts and the addition of a blended/distance learning delivery mode) the following process applies:

1) Please print the existing MDF (in PDF format) either from the Module Catalogue or Manage My Curriculum.
NB MDFs accessible via the Module Catalogue are generated from e-vision and are updated every 24 hours. There is therefore a small time delay for any amendments to show on the Catalogue.

2) Please complete the Cover paper - Module Amendments, one form per module. Please refer to the Notes of Guidance when considering the changes you wish to make to the module.
• Identify in the left hand column of the relevant box the sections of the MDF you wish to change
• Detail in the right hand column the change you intend to make and include the complete and exact text you wish to appear in that section of the revised MDF
NB It is important to make absolutely clear to the Panel what is changing. Ideally the old and new text should be clearly shown; if this is not possible please ensure that the Panel will be able to easily identify the changes you are proposing to the existing section. It is possible to copy and paste text from the PDF version into the Cover Paper template and then amend it.

All changes must be approved by the Head of Department. Any proposed amendment to Section 7 of the MDF (intended learning outcomes) requires a revised version of the learning outcomes mapping exercise (completed originally at the Course Approval Event for the relevant course(s)) to be submitted to demonstrate the revised module’s continued contribution to the achievement of the course learning outcomes.

3) Please append the existing MDF (in PDF form) to the cover paper and submit both by email to curriculum-revisions@anglia.ac.uk.

Updating Module Leader Details and Key Texts

Changes to module leadership and updates to indicative reading lists do not require formal approval and can be updated at any time by the Module Leader via the Manage My Curriculum facility on e-vision.


Addition of a blended/distance learning delivery mode to an existing module

Where an additional blended/distance learning delivery mode to an existing module is proposed the following process applies:

1) Please print the existing MDF (in PDF format) either from the Module Catalogue or Manage My Curriculum.
NB MDFs accessible via the Module Catalogue are generated from e-vision and are updated every 24 hours. There is therefore a small time delay for any amendments to show on the Catalogue.

2) Please complete the Cover paper - Addition of blended/distance learning delivery mode, one form per module. Please refer to the Notes of Guidance when considering the changes you wish to make to the module. Please note that additional information is required to support the proposal including the consideration of learning materials on the VLE by the Faculty Learning and Teaching Advisor.

Module archiving

Proposals for module archiving do not require formal approval and can be made at any time. Please complete a Cover Paper - Module Archiving providing details of modules which you wish to archive. You can identify multiple modules on one form. Email completed forms to curriculum-revisions@anglia.ac.uk. Modules will be archived by the Technical Team at the appropriate time.
