Summary of Programmatic Review
GMIT conducted an Institute wide programmatic review during the academic year 2013 – 2014.
Forty-eight panels were established to cover all the discipline areas and individual programmes following the guidelines in Code of Practice No 2. The Programmatic Reviews with the EPRG panel and the programme boards took place over a thirteen day period from the 27th May to the 20th June 2013. In total 71 programmes were reviewed by the 48 panels over the 13 day period.
A template for the production of the report of the EPRG was issued from the Registrar’s Office more as guidance for the Secretary and recording Secretaries and also to ensure that there was some consistency of reporting so that analysis could be facilitated of the process and also to feed into the next Institutional review.
The Institute Programmatic Review on a disciplinary basis was deemed to be successful as it united staff across the whole Institute in the evaluation of programmes. The individual programme reports and the overall report were approved by the Academic Council on December 16th 2014. Prior to that the Heads of Academic Units had an opportunity to review the reports from a factual accuracy prospective.
Internally within GMIT progress on the implementation of the findings of the programmatic review process at Programme Board level will be monitored by the Monitoring and Review Committee which is a sub-committee of Academic Council, wherein the Heads of Academic Units will report on an annual basis in relation to progress they are making.
