Fixing Portico update: December 2019
5 December 2019
Changes to maintaining module and programme data
The Academic Review process has been revised to make it easier to confirm module and programme information.
In response to feedback from departments, we have made three major changes:
- Rather than re-verify all data, departments need to review only data that has been rolled forward from the current year and make changes where necessary;
- instead of a single ‘academic review’ data collection, staff will be able to revise certain curriculum data throughout the year, according to when it is required for business processes. The new process is designed to better reflect the reality of what information is available when (or might change) by permitting departments to change fields like staff names until later cut-off dates;
- as departments are responsible for the accuracy of this data, Heads of Departments are required to formally confirm, by 6 March, that the data held in Portico accurately reflects the department’s programme and module offering for 2020/21.
Why this information is required
Accurate and timely module and programme data will improve the staff and student experiences of related outputs and processes such as module catalogue, module selection and timetabling.
