Abstract

The University of Hull’s Faculty of Education has provision split across two campuses: Teacher Education and Education Studies. With the approach of 2012 funding process the Head of Education Studies requested a review of undergraduate degrees in Education Studies (non QTS) with the overall aim of providing a more efficient, effective and integrated undergraduate provision. Specific objectives were to develop UG provision to ensure that we:  Strengthened cross campus working; Minimised competition between campuses ; Maximised good practice; Shared expertise (administrative as well as academic); Supported strategies for internationalisation and the development of Technology Enhanced Learning. This paper reports on the process of review and specifically on the work undertaken by the Chair of the Review Panel, Dr. Ken Spencer, in developing a matrix of modules that allowed for a comparison of provision. The instrument he developed not only catalogued the 140+ modules that were in existence for UG degree programmes (and provided direct access to module specifications via URL links), but also entered module provision into a matrix through use of a spreadsheet that allowed the provision to be sorted and compared through use of many variables. As a consequence the review team were not only able to analyse the viability of the provision, but were also in a position to advise the development team of priorities. This paper will allow BESA delegates to see the matrix in action and evaluate the applicability of such an approach for their own use.
