The University's Education Strategy was revised during 2007-2008 as part of an on-going review of the objectives and actions from the Strategy and approved by Senate in May 2008. Professor Avril Waterman-Pearson, Pro-Vice-Chancellor (Education) and the Education Committee revised the Strategy, building on what had already been achieved and areas of work still to be established. The revised Strategy was mapped to the Learning and Teaching Strategy 2002-2005 and clearly incorporated this. Education Committee continued to monitor and review the Strategy.
The University’s first Education Strategy was approved by Council on 19th March 2004.
The Strategy, developed by a Working Group chaired by Professor Patricia Broadfoot, Pro-Vice-Chancellor (Education), was the outcome of a wide consultation process across the University. Together with other strategies, the Education Strategy supported the University Plan and Vision. It was student-centred and was devised with the student experience in mind. Two Union Presidents consecutively contributed to the working group, to help ensure that this was the case.
The Education and Research Strategies were designed to be complementary in supporting the University’s core activities and were closely linked with other strategies. These included the Learning and Teaching Strategy, whose goals relate to detailed policy on learning, teaching, and quality assurance matters, and the Human Resources Strategy with its focus on rewarding and retaining staff.
