Relationships vs Mechanisms

‘Relationships’ are seen to be far more important than effective ‘mechanisms’ in delivering good curriculum design. Policies and defined processes are not seen to contribute significantly to the curriculum design process. Building relationships – professional and even social with fellow academics (within a course team and across the institution), senior managers, students and external examiners are cited as being the most important factor in ‘getting the job done’.
