Academic Council established a sub-committee to consider Modular
Course structures under the Chairmanship of Dr Tadhg Barrett and
a report was delivered in December 2001. The report submitted to
Academic Council can be found at http://intranet.dit.ie/minutes/acad_council/index.html.
A special meeting of Academic Council was held on 22nd May 2002
to discuss the report. At the conclusion of the meeting Academic
Council agreed that the Institute should move towards a modularised
structure for its academic programmes. Subsequently a Modularisation
Executive was established with Dr Frank McMahon as Chairman/Sponsor.
Also as part of the implementation of Theme 1 ‘Multi-Level,
Learner-Centred Environment’ of the Institute’s Vision
for Development 2001-2015, Bill Grimson was appointed to co-ordinate
efforts to allow the modularisation goal to be achieved.
