All new courses and those due for periodic review are validated through the CDAR process.

Academic Development staff will form part of your Course Development team to support you through the process and to offer practical advice around all aspects of course design, including your teaching and learning and assessment strategies.

We can advise on current trends of good practice, innovation in HE and how to optimise your course design to make a positive impact on your students’ experience during their learning journey. In addition to the documentation contained on this site please also view:

The Group Quality Unit CDAR site - Which section contains guidance, documentation and templates relating to the quality processes that operate for University awards.

Details on regulations for new courses – It is important that you develop your course using the correct regulations for the year that it is planned to start.

Contact us in the Academic Development Team to let us know when your course meetings happen, and let us know if you need some specific support before and during the process.
