Much accomplished, much still to do
While the implementation process continues to go according to plan and we are steadily meeting our timeline targets, the Implementation Committee recognises that with just over a year to go before the new courses begin there can be no room for complacency.
The Strategic Risk Register for New Courses 2012, established early in the implementation project, is regularly reviewed on the basis of appropriate consultation. It identifies and rates specific risks, and indicates a range of mitigating actions. No unpleasant surprises have emerged to date. In general the risks seem predictable and manageable, but the monitoring process will remain important throughout the months ahead.
Previous reports to the Executive, Academic Council and other bodies during the last year have provided information on several aspects of implementation. These include:
- the evaluation and approval of majors and units for the new streamlined undergraduate and Honours courses,
- the structural alignment of existing postgraduate courses with the University’s changed requirements,
- the work being done by central administrative areas such as Student Services and Governance Services to underpin the academic developments, and
- the various kinds of marketing and communications through which stakeholders are being kept informed about New Courses 2012.
Against that background of progress and achievement, the following list of substantial tasks for 2011 should be noted.
