How are academic regulations produced and by whom, and what is the process?

Producing academic regulations

Producing academic regulations and thereby formulating academic objectives, choosing forms of examination and agreeing on course content are important academic and educational activities. There are many stakeholders involved, and various academic traditions and preferences come into play, which is why a process plan for developing academic regulations has been drawn up. Fundamental academic discussions are often an important part of developing academic regulations, which makes the process time-consuming and complex. Nevertheless, it is an important task, providing the opportunity to re-discuss the core subject area of the degree programme. This also means that the subject area will not be based on the expertise of individual members of the teaching staff. So it is important to understand the many roles involved in the work with academic regulations.
