  1. Review How we bring the Review systems together

  2. Linking AHC and SAER

  3. Characteristics of earlier annual reviews • Documentation • Subgroup emphasis: reports & replies • Primarily ‘Closing the loop’ • ‘what the School had done’ • Quality Assurance

  4. Present Annual review • Maturing process of Annual Health Checks • Introduced discussions with Schools on provision • What the school is doing and will be doing • Assurance of academic standards and quality • How these aspects are monitored and reviewed • Enhancement

  5. Module survey data Module reviews External examiners' reports and School responses National Student Survey Programme Experience Survey Programme reviews School Action Plan Other sources of feedback Annual Health Check Other information, including: Exam Board minutes Disability and equality issues Collaborative arrangements External examiner appointments Report on strategic priorities Overview of teaching portfolio Future risk analysis Enhancement needs/priorities Previous year AHC report Report on PSRB activities Report to School, FLTC, Dean, SAER review, LTB summary

  6. Deadlines

  7. Broader Focus • Quality of the Student Experience • Learning and Teaching Strategy • notes significant milestones in learning and teaching activity throughout the previous year • consideration of programmes (including admissions, progression and achievement data); • an indication of identified risks for the immediate future

  8. Enhancement • Progress in addressing the University’s strategic priorities: • research-led teaching • refining assessment practice and improving academic feedback • use of technology to enhance learning and teaching

  9. Reports from previous AHC visits provide the SAER team - • A picture of the School’s learning and teaching activity over a 4 year period • Processes for quality management & assurance • Maintenance of academic standards • Strategic developments

  10. Annual Health Check Report YR1 Annual Health Check Report YR3 Annual Health Check Report YR4 Annual Health Check Report YR2 All reports feed into the Student Academic Experience Review Student Academic Experience Review (SAER) The Student Academic Experience Review Report feeds into the Quinquennial Review Quinquennial Review

  11. Student Academic Experience Review (SAER) • Combines two separate review activities Periodic Review & Review of Postgraduate Research Supervision • Timetable of meetings over 2-days • One Evaluation Document (separate sections) • Larger team – to include members with experience of research supervision

  12. Additional Features of the SAER process • Combined review of learning and teaching and the review of postgraduate research supervision with some parallel meetings • A single process that allows for more discussion on the links between research and teaching • More in depth consideration of PG(r) issues • A focus on quality assurance, strategy and the student academic experience (taught and research)

  13. Outcomes • One report covering- • management of learning and teaching:strategy;methods of delivery; effectiveness of curriculum; • maintenance of standards: code of practice on assessment; use of External Examiners; • management of learning opportunities:monitoring; support and guidance; academic tutorials; personal tutorials; • management of research degree supervision;research facilities; student support and guidance; supervision monitoring and assessment; quality and standards • maintenance and enhancement of standards and quality for both L&T and Research

  14. Findings • Recommendations – good practice and areas for further consideration • After consideration of the documentation provided and discussions with the School in various meetings the team has confidence / limited confidence in the present and likely management of the quality of the learning opportunities and academic standards. • Good Practice • Areas for action by the School • Areas for consideration by the School in order to enhance the provision

  15. How does it link with ..? • Review schedule arranged to complement the rolling timetable for Quinquennial Review • SAER takes place one year ahead of a Quinquennial Review visit. • The findings of the visit (the report) forms part of the documentation set for the Quinquennial Review • Issues raised in the SAER are followed up as part of the Annual Health Check meeting the following year which eliminates the need for a Follow-up meeting
