Programme Leaders Forum
Inspired by work with Programme Leaders at Edinburgh Napier University, the Programme Leader Forum aims to:
- Provide a forum for programme leaders to meet to:
- provide a peer support network for discussing and sharing ideas, issues, challenges and successes;
- share features of good practice to enhance the student experience.
- Determine the developmental needs of programme leaders and in doing so inform educational development programmes.
- Provide opportunities to consult with programme leaders to inform policy development.
- Provide opportunities to access support and discuss, clarify and provide feedback, as appropriate, on University policies and processes.
- Provide a voice for programme leaders via nominated representatives on University committees and task groups.
- Establish a community of practice to discuss other issues pertaining to the role of programme leaders as deemed necessary by the forum.
