PALET is one of twelve projects, funded by the JISC under the Curriculum Design Programme. The project aims to develop a revised programme approval process, which will create a more efficient and flexible approach to the design of new curricula. The redesigned process will be supported by the electronic tools emerging from Cardiff University’s Modern Working Environment (MWE). The electronic toolset will ensure that academic and support staff are supported through each stage of the programme approval process. The technology will allow the programme level and module level information that is produced during curriculum design to be clearly defined and seamlessly fed into other business application (i.e. student record system).

University Project at Cardiff. PALET will seek to redesign
the programme approval process to ensure that new programmes
