70     MINUTES OF THE LAST MEETING

70.1   NOTED and AGREED:

       i)    A minor change was made to minute 59.2.2 (vi). Otherwise the

71     MATTERS ARISING

71.1   NOTED and AGREED: Matters arising from the meeting held on
       Monday 14th April 2008 were actioned as follows:

       i)    School short courses [Minute 58.1 (i)] NOTED and AGREED:
             The Subject Director (Field Leader) for DAVC tabled a proposal for
             a ‘Portfolio Preparation’ short course. The start date of this short
             course is to be changed to July 2008. Otherwise the proposal was
             approved at the meeting.
             Action: Subject Director for DAVC

             The Subject Director (Field Leader) for Fashion and Textiles
             advised that the short course proposals for ‘Creative Pattern
             Marking’ and ‘Garment Construction’ will be sent to the Chief
             Management Accountant in June 2008. An outline of these
             courses needs to be attached to these proformas. The Subject
             Director for Fashion & Textiles has received an outline for two short
             courses that fall within the remit of the Knowledge Dock:
             ‘Introduction to Digital Fabric Printing’ and ‘Colour Matters for
             Beginners’. The QA Officer has asked Mr. Michael Riches to
             complete ‘Proformas for Approval of Short Courses’ for these two
             proposed short courses.
             Action: Subject Director (Field Leader) for Fashion and
             Textiles and QA Officer

       ii)   ‘Assessment Policy 2007’ [Minute 58.1 (ii)] NOTED and

             complete the implementation record in liaison with Havering
             College staff.
             Action: Academic Link person for Havering College




                                                                                 2

       the Programme Leader for Fashion Marketing and it has been
       agreed that Fashion Marketing should become a member of the
       Chartered Institute of Marketing at a fee of £500 per year. The
       Subject Director for Fashion & Textiles has still not heard back
       from the Chartered Society of Designers re the Textile Design
       programme area. This matter is therefore ongoing.
       Action: Subject Director (Field Leader) for Fashion & Textiles

                                   72.10.5 (i)

72.7   Introduction

 (i)   The Digital Arts & Visual Communication Subject Area (Field) was
       formed by the association of several new and existing programmes,
       offered as single or combined honours. Student numbers have risen to
       about 460 FTEs in 2007-8, with the proportion of Combined Honours
       students growing annually. The existing Digital Arts & Visual
       Communication (DAVC) programmes have been running within the
       present structure since September 2006, and although much of the
       subject area (field) is well served by the existing programmes some
       amendments are now necessary to ensure that student demand is
       matched to the DAVC delivery and resource portfolio. DAVC
       programmes attract many combined honours’ students, and some of
       the proposed amendments are to ensure parity of experience of
       students studying as combined honours, and to reflect the real needs
       of delivery.




                                                                          5
72.8     Rationale for the Programme, Aims and Objectives and
         Admissions Process

72.8.1   RECEIVED and NOTED: A spoken report the Subject Director, Field
         Leader for Digital Arts & Visual Communication.

 (i)     Graphic Design and Photography
         The Graphic Design and Photography single honours’ programmes
         recruit well, and are available and popular as combined honours
         options, and no changes are proposed to these programmes.

 (ii)    Illustration, Graphic Arts, and Printmaking
         Illustration recruits well as a minor programme, but as a result of low
         recruitment to Graphic Arts the staffing available to Graphic Arts and
         Illustration is largely shared. Despite the flexibility of staff the delivery of
         Graphic Arts and Illustration and the experience of Illustration students
         is inevitably compromised. The proposal is to offer Illustration as a
         major or minor programme, with modules at each level, with the choice
         of major or minor modules in Level 2 to facilitate joint degrees with
         other programmes that are offered either as major or as minor
         programmes, and not to run the Graphic Arts single honours
         programme.

         Printmaking is a very well resourced area within the school, both in
         terms of technical resource, and staff expertise, however it is not
         explicitly available to DAVC students, but access is via Graphic Arts or
         Graphic Design modules. It is proposed to offer Printmaking as a minor
         programme, with existing modules (Printmaking 1, Graphic Arts 2,
         Graphic Arts 3) being adapted as named 40-credit modules available at
         each level. The re-titling is designed to attract applicants, and take up
         is expected to be good, particularly as combinations with Illustration,
         Graphic Design or Photography.

         Graphic Arts has recruited poorly as a single honours programme, with
         single figure student numbers in 2007-8. It is proposed to cease
         offering Graphic Arts as a single honours programme, and to replace
         Graphic Arts modules for combined honours’ students with coherent
         minor programmes in Illustration and in Printmaking.

 (iii)   Digital Arts and Moving Image, Animation
         Digital Arts and Moving Image (DAMI) modules were formed by the
         merging of Digital Arts modules with Moving Image modules. The
         Digital Arts element of the title has become unnecessary and
         cumbersome, and recent experience has been that Moving Image
         students usually prefer to study in combination with Animation.



                                                                                       6
72.8.1   Rationale for the Programme, Aims and Objectives and
(cont)   Admissions Process

         DAMI has not recruited well as a single honours programme, although
         take-up is high in both Moving Image and Animation modules. The
         proposal therefore is to offer Animation modules either as a minor
         route, for combination primarily with Illustration, Graphic Design or
         Photography, or as part of a single honours programme to be re-titled
         ‘Moving Image’. To facilitate this one module, Animation 2 will need to
         be re-written so as to not be part of the skills curriculum, and DAMI
         modules will be re-titled Moving Image.

 (iv)    Summary
         Under these proposals there will be three single honours programmes:
         Graphic Design, Photography, and Moving Image, all of which are
         expected to recruit sustainable student numbers.
         There will be minor programmes available in Animation, Graphic
         Design, Illustration, Photography, Printmaking, and Illustration will also
         be available as a major.

72.8.2   Rationale for the Programme, Aims and Objectives and
         Admissions Process - continued

  (i)    NOTED: Ms. Susan Kelly, external adviser, responded as follows:

 (a)     Rationale. The newly formed programmes clearly responded to both
         the students’ needs and academic rationale. She stated that as the
         structure of these programmes and their combinations are made
         clearer to potential students and rationalised, recruitment will likely
         increase. She felt therefore that the number of staff would also need to
         increase in the future.

 (b)     Admission process. Admission is linked to the Foundation year or
         equivalent which is important to prepare students for an amount of
         independent study required on the programme.

72.8.3   AGREED:

  (i)    Rationale, Aims and Objectives and Admissions Process.
         Members of the committee supported the rationale and proposed
         changes.




                                                                                  7
 72.9    Content and Structure of the Programme
72.9.1   RECEIVED and NOTED: A spoken report the Subject Director, Field
         Leader for Digital Arts & Visual Communication.

 (i)     Animation
         One Animation 40-credit module, ‘Animation 2’ has been amended to
         remove it from the skills curriculum, to avoid duplication with that
         offered in ‘Moving Image 2’. Animation modules are therefore available
         as core modules in the single honours programme Moving Image, or as
         a joint or minor programme in conjunction with another major
         programme.

         New module code required to replace module DV2600
         XXXXXX ‘Animation 2’ (40 credit)

 (ii)    Illustration
         There are two re-titled 40-credit Level 2 modules, one for a major
         route, which is part of the skills curriculum (research), and to be studied
         with programmes that are only offered as minor or joint, and one for
         joint and minor routes, which is not part of the skills curriculum, to be
         studied with major programmes that provide a skills curriculum module
         at Level 2.

         New module codes required to replace module DV2500 and module
         DV2500
         XXXXXX ‘Illustration Major’
         XXXXXX ‘Illustration 2’
         Amended, re-titled 40 credit modules:
         DV2500 Illustration Major (DV2500 Illustration 2)
         DV2019 Illustration Minor (DV2019 Editorial Illustration)

 (iii)   Moving Image (Digital Arts and Moving Image)
         The single honours’ programme now incorporates Animation modules
         as core, in response to the clear demand from students to study these
         disciplines in tandem, and in acknowledgement of the educational and
         training needs of such technically-demanding interrelated disciplines.

         New module codes required to replace modules DV1400, DV2400 and
         DV 3400
         Amended, re-titled 40 credit modules:

         XXXXXX Moving Image 1 (Digital Arts and Moving Image 1)
         XXXXXX Moving Image 2 (Digital Arts and Moving Image 2)
         XXXXXX Moving Image 3 (Digital Arts and Moving Image 3)




                                                                                 8
 (iv)    Printmaking
         There are three newly titled 40-credit modules, one at each level, which
         incorporate much of the curriculum from the existing 20-credit
         Printmaking module, and Graphic Arts 40-credit modules, re-focused to
         be appropriate for Printmaking.

         New Module: DV1200 Printmaking 1 (40 credit)
                     DV2200 Printmaking 2 (40 credit)
                     DV3200 Printmaking 3 (40 credit)
72.9.2   Content and Structure of the Programme - continued

         NOTED: The following comments from Ms. Susan Kelly, external
         adviser:

 (i)     Structure of programmes. The new structure is much clearer and will
         allow students flexibility of choice without compromising integrity of
         learning experience or individual programmes.

 (ii)    The external adviser considered that the English Language support
         given to students was particularly strong.

 (iii)   The external adviser commented in the aide memoire that the role of a
         personal tutor to work with students across combined honours’ options
         would be important to help those students ‘to see relationships within
         what they have learned’ and ‘to appreciate attitudes, modes of thought,
         practices and disciplines other than those of their main studies’.

 (iv)    The external adviser stated in the aide-memoire that it was important
         that modules specified a high degree of online communication and
         ‘chat’ to integrate online communication with ‘live’ seminar discussion
         and to enable students to understand the differences between these
         modes of communication.

72.9.3   Content and Structure of the Programmes - continued

 (i)     NOTED: Members of the committee approved the structure of the new
         programmes.

 (ii)    AGREED:

 (a)     Module codes and titles need to be checked. Where module titles are
         changed and there is significant change to the content of a module a
         new module code and title needs to be assigned. Withdrawn modules
         also need to be identified. Module codes and titles also need to be

         consulted regarding new modules to be delivered there. The

         Communication/Committee Servicing Officer

  (b)    The QA Leader advised in the aide-memoire document that a table
         would be very useful to clarify what is being offered in each
         programme, how each programme has been changed and what has
         been validated, although this might be clearer once the programme
         specifications had been corrected. This document was tabled at the
         meeting.

  (c)    A Programme Withdrawal form is to be completed for the BA (Hons)
         Graphic Arts programme.

72.10    Learning, Teaching and Assessment

72.10.1 RECEIVED and NOTED: A spoken report the Subject Director, Field
        Leader for Fashion and Textiles.

72.10.2 NOTED: The following comments from Ms. Susan Kelly, external
        adviser:

  (i)    It is a little unclear how reading lists attached to each module relate to
         Visual Theories’ seminars that students might undertake. Students
         should take responsibility for their own learning, but some guidance
         may be needed (in the form of a personal tutor, or cross-relating of
         reading lists). This applies, for example, to the ‘translating’ of bodies of
         knowledge and different contexts of practice (e.g. moving in fine art, vs
         moving image in Video DJ, or film industry) by students who, at
         undergraduate level, often do not have knowledge of these
         frameworks. This in particular applies to combined honours’ students.

  (ii)   It was advised that where combined honours students are concerned,
         a personal tutor is assigned to the student for the major part of the
         programme. Where a joint honours programme is concerned, a
         personal tutor is assigned to the student for both programme areas.


                                                                                  10
        Students take their options and modules most closely related to their
        degree. Modules are fashioned according to the cohorts. Reading lists
        are appropriate to the module.

72.10.3 Learning, Teaching and Assessment

  (i)   NOTED: The external adviser stated that all assessment methods
        were comparable with those at other institutions.

72.10.4 Learning, Teaching and Assessment - continued

  (i)   NOTED: The following issues were raised by the QA Officer in an
        aide-memoire and these were clarified in the documentation prior to the
        meeting:

  (a)   The assessment was not specific enough for module DV1200
        ‘Printmaking’ and on the DV 1400 ‘Moving Image 1’ module
        specification. Learning outcome 3 was also missing from the module
        specification for module DV 1400 .Moving Image 1’.

72.10.5 AGREED:

  (i)   The QA Leader stated that there needed to be some consistency
        regarding the word count and tariffs for student presentations and it
        was agreed that this information should be included in the module
        guide.
        Action: Subject Director (Field Leader) for Digital Arts & Visual
        Communication

72.11   Resource Issues, Staffing and Scholarly Activity

72.11.1 RECEIVED and NOTED: A spoken report the Subject Director, Field
        Leader for Digital Arts & Visual Communication.

72.11.2 Resource Issues, Staffing and Scholarly Activity - continued

  (i)   NOTED: The external adviser, Ms. Susan Kelly, stated that that the
        new programmes were a clear improvement on existing programme
        structures. They will allow students to move between areas in a ‘more
        flexible, yet coherent way’. The changes clearly respond to student
        demand and realities of the programmes on the ground, and are to be
        commended for dealing with these changes and demands in a
        coherent and positive way. Her concern for the future is that staffing
        levels for both personal tutoring (and the increase in recruitment that
        will follow from restructuring of areas, e.g. Print) be kept up or
        increased, so that the programmes retain and develop their integrity


                                                                                11
         across disciplines.


72.12    Programme Management, Academic Guidance and Pastoral Care

72.12.1 RECEIVED and NOTED: A spoken report from the Subject Director,
        Field Leader for Digital Arts & Visual Communication.

  (i)    There were no programme management, academic guidance and
         pastoral care issues raised.

  (ii)   There has been student consultation and a set of programme
         committee meeting minutes were included in the documentation as
         evidence of this.

72.12.2 NOTED: The following comments from Ms. Susan Kelly, external
        adviser:

  (i)    Personal tutors across modules would aid learning for combined
         honours’ students.

72.13    Suitability and Accuracy of the Programme Specifications and
         other relevant paperwork

72.13.1 NOTED: Ms. Susan Kelly, external adviser, commented in the aide-
        memoire that the information provided was very clear, concise and
        well-written.

72.13.2 Suitability and Accuracy of the Programme Specifications and
        other relevant paperwork - continued

  (i)    AGREED: The following changes needed to be made to the
         documentation and these were undertaken prior to this (re)approval
         event.

  (a)    Table in programme specifications. The table in the programme
         specifications and structure diagrams need to be amended to ensure
         that correct combinations of majors, minors and joints are listed as well
         as the correct credit details and type of modules, e.g. core or option.

  (b)    Exemption is required from the Head of Modular Programmes if
         major/minor/joints are not to be offered as part of the single honours
         pathway.

  (c)    Amendments are needed to the learning times on modules DV2400
         ‘Moving Image 2’ and DV3400 ‘Moving Image 3’.


                                                                                  12
72.13.2 Suitability and Accuracy of the Programme Specifications and
        other relevant paperwork - continued

  (d)    The font on programme and module specifications needs to be
         consistent. There are small errors on all the programme specifications,
         e.g. the word ‘pathway’ on page 3 should be changed to ‘programme’.
         Docklands Airport should be changed to City Airport.

  (e)    There is a repeat of the number of 70 hours in the student/tutor
         interaction time box.

  (f)    The number of overall hours does not add up on either the ‘Moving
         Image 2’ or ‘Moving Image 3’ module specifications.

        programmes. The comments from Ms. Maureen Gamble were not
        received in time for the meeting and will be considered at the next
