The systematic maintenance of a ‘Module File’ or ‘Module Box’ for each module is regarded as good practice and is particularly valuable when preparing for external discipline audits. Such files/boxes should contain copies of any information relevant to the module concerned. You may inherit a Module File/Box when you become Module Leader, in which case it becomes your responsibility to maintain it. If a file does not exist, you are recommended to start one. It is important that the Module File/Box is accessible to other staff (e.g. the Chair of the Board of Study) and you should consult with your Head of Department and/or Faculty/School Registrar on local policy for the content and location of these files (central guidance is available) – in some Faculties/ Schools electronic storage is being developed and implemented. Module Boxes may be subject to scrutiny by internal or external auditors.
