JISC funded project 'Enable' based at Staffordshire University.
An agile project with different things starting and finishing at different times. Good senior management support.
"The project aims to embed coordination between projects within the University, to enable the development of new processes that will allow curriculum development to become more flexible and responsive. At the end of the project it is envisioned that the university will have a small portfolio of product available to learners that can be customised by need. The project will identify issues blocking this aim and strives to enable the university to put strategies in place that will enable the university to move forward"
Project has identified examples of excellent practice in the University but these practices do not seem to be sustained and tended to sit in pockets. Some reasons for this have been identified:
- Fear of Change
- No clear 'whole picture' vision. Conflicting projects and duplications.
- Money/ funding
