Continuous Monitoring of the Undergraduate and Postgraduate Taught Student Experience and the Annual Review of Teaching and Learning

The purpose of continuous monitoring is to ensure that the standard of programmes is being maintained and to improve the experience of students as appropriate.

Continuous monitoring is about reflecting on the previous academic year and action planning for the coming academic year.  It is relevant to all levels of the University but is driven in the first instance by the reflection of the staff delivering a programme or group of cognate programmes.

The University's approach to continuous monitoring is based on a 'conversational, not confrontational' approach; honest evaluations based on evidence of what has worked well and what has worked less well.

Continuous Monitoring and SEAPs: 2022/23 academic year

An updated SEAP Excel template has been agreed for use for the current session. The template has been designed to support colleagues in this process and modified in response to feedback about alignment with APR and operational priorities. This interim process is light touch and has been produced to be as flexible as possible.

In addition to the template itself, the Excel file also includes a ‘user guide’ for the document and a ‘themes’ sheet identifying the themes for this session which as previously work to provide a consistent framework for discussion across Faculties (including the opportunity to collect good practice for onward sharing – a sheet is included for this in the template).

For advice on any local ways of managing this process, please speak with your Faculty Vice Dean (Teaching, Learning and Students), as appropriate.

SEAP documents should be submitted no later than Friday 6 January 2023 to enable circulation of papers in advance of the the TLEF meeting on 2 February 2023 and the Senate Sub-Committee on 18 January 2023.
