APS Updates

University of Bradford – Stakeholder Requirements workshops

leave a comment »

On 11th and 12th October APS Ltd were at University of Bradford to run a series of workshops looking at the University’s requirements for course information across the board from initial course idea through approvals and updates to marketing and ultimately withdrawing courses.

There were three workshops, which looked at the background of the project briefly before we invited the attendees to present ideal scenarios they had brought with them to promote discussion within the group.  Then it was time for the attendees to add to the diagrams and notes we brought with post-its and their own notes.

We also had a drop-in session each day where we spoke to people who couldn’t make it to the workshops, or who we discovered had an interest in the project through working with the staff in the workshops.  We were especially pleased to get a chance to talk to representatives from the current Timetabling Project and a specialist on Curriculum Design at the University.

We had fantastic turn out and spoke to around 23 staff over the two days from Admissions/Enquiries, School Administrators, Academics, Associate Deans of Learning and Teaching, CART Members, Timetabling, Curriculum Design, Academic Quality, Marketing and the SITS team.  A huge amount of information is now being processed as we begin to draft the Statement of Requirements.  All stakeholders will be consulted on the Statement of Requirements before it is finalised, with the final draft expected before Christmas.
