Course approval processes

Course approval processes Focuses on processes of course approval, which lead to enhancement of the curriculum and student learning. Findings from a recent study concerned with the question: To what extent does quality monitoring impact on the student experience of learning? showed the curriculum, and how it was approved, to be significant factors in enhancing student learning. It is argued that the focus for quality in a rapidly changing world should be on the attributes of graduates, with quality monitoring concerned with improvement and enhancement of student learning. Where quality monitoring does have a positive impact on student learning, through the approval and ongoing monitoring of the curriculum and its outcomes, then these processes should be improved. This should be through a process which fosters collegiality and encourages pedagogical discussion amongst academic colleagues.

Abstract

Focuses on processes of course approval, which lead to enhancement of the curriculum and student learning. Findings from a recent study concerned with the question: To what extent does quality monitoring impact on the student experience of learning? showed the curriculum, and how it was approved, to be significant factors in enhancing student learning. It is argued that the focus for quality in a rapidly changing world should be on the attributes of graduates, with quality monitoring concerned with improvement and enhancement of student learning. Where quality monitoring does have a positive impact on student learning, through the approval and ongoing monitoring of the curriculum and its outcomes, then these processes should be improved. This should be through a process which fosters collegiality and encourages pedagogical discussion amongst academic colleagues. A series of prompts or questions, which seek to challenge teachers and enhance dialogue with colleagues, is proposed.
