CourseLoop is the university’s curriculum management system, providing a central repository for all governed course and topic data and approvals.
Whilst the system itself is new, the electronic approval workflows are based on the Award Courses Policy (and procedures) therefore the approval process and level of approval required for new and changed curriculum has not changed.
The CourseLoop templates are based on the 2020 Word templates but are now online, pre-populated with curriculum data (when changing existing curriculum) and are attached to a proposal with a couple of clicks. Version control issues have also been eliminated as all stakeholders have access to the same set of templates in real time and the numerous files submitted to governance committees have been replaced with a URL that links to the one set of templates from the Agenda. Please delete any saved Word template files on your computer – you won’t be needing them anymore.
The Educational Quality Team will continue to support the development of your course and topic proposals, discussing your needs carefully so we can create the proposal in the system for you to review, edit and finalise. A FLO site of resources has been created to complement the one on one support provided by the Educational Quality Team. This is not a training site but a repository of step-by-step instructions, videos and other useful information. Contact the team today so they can best support you in your use of CourseLoop and the FLO site.
It has never been easier to improve your curriculum!
