Maintaining Quality within Institutions
Maintaining Quality within Institutions focuses on how people undertake, define, measure, monitor and improve quality and quality assurance processes and procedures within tertiary education. Tertiary education institutions are under mounting pressure to demonstrate their quality as a measure of social and financial accountability to students, the public and the government.
This subject will enable you to understand the contexts and approaches of internal quality monitoring, addressing and exploring a range of theoretical, cultural, methodological and practical considerations. It contains four modules of study:
This module introduces the context, theory and approaches of internal quality monitoring taking into account the social, political economic and technological changes that are driving the quality agenda in higher education institution.
This module explores how institutions can plan quality strategies and operations. It introduces the concepts of planning pyramid and quality cycle and how these can be adapted to their institutional context.
This module considers the forms of evaluation, review and monitoring and concludes with a discussion of options for managing quality improvement.
In sync with the quality cycle, the final module links back to the start of the cycle—understanding and analysing the external positioning of internal quality assurance. This module provides an understanding of the external quality assurance audit process, and looks at opportunities for benchmarking against other institutions and standards. It also discusses some of the issues and challenges relating to quality assurance faced by institutions.
