Change Commentary
Project Board discussed the overdue work at the meeting on 13 Aug. The Academic eFacilitator offered reassurance all changes would be made to week 1 content by the start of teaching. An additional meeting by Skype was organised for 26th August as a verbal checkpoint. Again the Academic eFacilitator was confident all changes would be made. Project Board discussed the overdue work at the meeting on 04 July The team has agreed that Semester 1 updates and induction/programme content should be prioritised as these must be completed before September. Semester 2 updates for all programmes except GCHM/TCHM are being delayed until later in 2019, and the project will close without these having been achieved. This does match the current work pattern of the Academic eFacilitators who update materials just before teaching starts.
