ARCs are a useful resource for departmental staff, faculties, external examiners and external auditors as they enable the department to:
- review and evaluate their courses and modules to inform quality assurance and enhancement
- develop action plans that ensure the enhancement of the courses and modules under review
- ensure excellence in the quality of education and alignment to the University’s Education Objectives
- identify and share good practice and lessons to be learned
ARCs allow the University to have oversight of themes that are emerging across departments and faculties that need to be acted upon, and to share good practice across the institution. From an external point of view, an effective ARC is a necessity if we are to demonstrate to external auditors the currency, security and validity of our awards.
