TIMETABLING

The Timetabling Team have been working on timeline changes to the data collection cycle for the 2017 Semester One timetable and beyond. Central to the process improvements is a more streamlined approach that will allow the school Timetable Liaison Officers to complete workload in a shorter timeframe and with more autonomy. Our Technical and Training Officer Adrian Lemus is presently rolling out new training to support schools through the change of processes.

There has never been a more exciting time to innovate in TE&R.

Student Administration recently participated in community engagement for Orange Sky Laundry. The team at Orange Sky expressed thanks for our efforts in volunteering for this worthy cause. The generous donations from staff of clothing, blankets and toiletries were gratefully received.

Timetables

All timetables are now available using the 2016 Online Timetable link. Please note that the URL for the online timetable has changed, so if you have saved the link to your favourites, it will need to be replaced with the updated version.

Important Dates

Date Activity
22 July 2016 Tutorial Direct forced sort

Students have now allocated to classes for Semester 2. Any changes made to the timetable will therefore have an impact on them. Change requests must be kept to a minimum.

All requests for changes to the 2016 Semester 2 Timetable must be submitted to Timetabling via the School’s TLO. Draft changes are due by midday, Tuesday 14 June.

Requests received after that time will be treated as Provisional Timetable changes and are subject to different and more stringent conditions under the University’s Timetabling Policy and Procedures. All change requests at the Provisional stage require a reason for the change to be provided on the Change Request Form (CRF) and also require the approval of the HOS/DHOS unless the change is:

  1. to staff allocated to an activity that does not impact any staff member’s allocated teaching timetable;
  2. to the location required due to unexpected surge/decline in student numbers;
  3. a same day, same time swap of location to accommodate an unexpected surge/decline in student numbers;
  4. the deletion of booked space no longer required;
  5. the addition of a repeated activity, justified by enrolment numbers.

With the exception of a hiccup at North Sydney that was out of our control, Tutorial Direct had its most successful opening ever this semester! The systems worked perfectly and there were approximately 20,000 allocations to classes in the first five minutes of each day. I would like to sincerely thank Pat Player and ACU’s IT staff, the AskACU team and of course, Dennis, Agnes, Dana, Jane and Adrian for all of their hard work.
