A prioritised and attractive portfolio of education programmes

 
 

ACTIONS

Preparation of financial analyses of the programmes and register analysis of the programmes’ societal relevance for use in prioritising the programme portfolio

The financial analyses and register analyses have been prepared and presented to the heads of department and heads of study at the end of 2015.

You can see the results from the register analyses in an abbreviated version here. The presentation of the financial analyses of the programmes (2013 figures) can be found on sdunet. In the future, annual financial analyses of the programmes will be made, and the next report containing 2015 figures is expected to be ready by the end of 2016.


 

Developing and adjusting the role as the head of studies

Each department has appointed a head of studies, who has the overall responsibility for the programmes which his/her department provides teaching for. The head of studies is part of the department’s management team and is a member of the Faculty’s Education Board. A joint list of duties for the head of studies has been adopted.


 

Setting up an Education Board consisting of heads of studies, selected academic staff members and student representatives

The Education Board is formed and works on the basis of the agreed terms of reference in which the division of responsibilities between the Education Board, study boards, heads of studies, etc. are described. You can read the terms of reference here.

As a general rule, the Education Board will meet four times each semester, but may meet more frequently if needed. You can follow the Education Board’s work and meetings on the website – see here (only available in Danish).


 

Prioritising and focussing the programme portfolio

A preliminary prioritisation has been carried out in the beginning of 2016 in relation to the University’s process of strategic opt-ins and opt-outs.

Up until the end of 2016, the Education Board will prepare a recommendation concerning a prioritised and focussed programme portfolio, which will be considered and decided on by the heads of department. The result of the prioritisation will be recorded in the minutes on the heads of department meetings – see agendas and minutes here.


 

Setting up of Centre for Educational IT (CPIT)

The terms of reference for Centre for Educational IT (CPIT) has been adopted and the Centre is under construction. CPIT is responsible to the Education Board, and in the coming years it will test, develop proposals for and assist in integrating new learning methods, etc. with particular regard to the use of digital learning forms. Further information can be obtained by contacting project manager Poul Basse at SFEO.


 

Gradual roll-out of supplementary admission criteria

Restricted admission has been imposed on all our programmes, and on most programmes the multiple choice test uniTEST is applied as a selective mechanism in relation to admission. The requirement for a quota 2 intake of 25 % has been reached.

Further developments will be made in this area, and the roll-out will therefore continue up until the intake of 2017 when it must be fully implemented. More information about the supplementary admission criteria can be obtained by contacting the Dean’s Office – Executive Officer Jette Winther.


 

Initiating the work to obtain an international accreditation

As of 1 April 2016 an academic-administrative employee has been hired; the employee is responsible for planning and implementing the accreditation process, this in collaboration with a Steering Committee consisting of department representatives. Further information about the process regarding the international accreditation can be obtained by contacting the Dean’s Office – Project Officer Johanna Süssmeir.
