DIRECTORATE OF ACADEMIC PLANNING & COURSE PRODUCTION
The department established in 1979 as Course Progress Coordinating Office was upgraded and renamed in 1986 as Bureau of Academic planning and course production.
The Directorate is a central office in course development process, it functions in closed collaboration with the faculty members. The Bureau participates in course planning and administers course production process by scheduling all associated activities i.e. writing, reviewing, editing and printing of course books/study material. The activities of media production are also scheduled side by side.
The close liaison with academic and servicing departments is a constant feature to get assurance for the announcement/launching of academic programmes in each semester and for the availability of mailing packet which pertain to course books, allied material, course assignments and audio programme cassettes etc. To monitor the smooth launching of a semester a number of meetings besides, the meetings of special task group, are called with concerned academic and servicing departments.
In pursuance of getting quality assurance the courses of each academic department are pinpointed/high lighted for review and revision. The revision meetings are arranged with concerned academicians and revision schedules are prepared and monitored.
The Bureau of AP&CP is responsible to place print/reprint order of study material of all AIOU course to PPU with the consultation of academic department for next two to three semesters, to allot course code numbers to new courses and to notify the names of course coordinator for respective courses. Likely the record of course code numbers and course coordinators is maintained. The Bureau of AP&CP serves in many respect as the nerve centre of University.
