What is Programme director's annual clock for educational processes?

The Programme director's annual clock is a tool which shows you an overview of Aalto University's time-related educational processes and their subprocesses /tasks.
The annual clock is a way  to find further instructions on the processes, as well as links to tools and more specific guidelines and instructions.

The annual clock is currently in pilot phase.

The deployment into Aalto-level use is planned for December 2022.
When in wider use, every member of the university can have access to view the annual clock.
A defined group of Aalto Learning services staff have the editing rights to the contents (see section Ohjeet Vuosikellon editointiin)

What kind of information can I find from the annual clock? 

The annual clock comprises information on shared processes among all schools of Aalto University as well as school specific information. 

The annual clock includes information on following categories: Education development, Student marketing, recruitment and admissions, and Teaching and student guidance.
The actual educational processes /themes belong to one category each.
