The fourth conference in this
series will be held in Singapore on December
The theme of this conference is Quality in Higher Education
What is quality in higher education? Who are the stakeholders in education who participate in defining quality? How do we achieve and assure quality?
As institutions of higher education develop frameworks for assuring quality, educators will need to ascertain how their role in education will fit in within these frameworks. Existing quality assurance frameworks for Universities are problematic because they focus on processes rather than learning outcomes. It is imperative that we judge the quality of education in terms of the goals of education.
We invite papers from all stakeholders (students, administrators, industries, teachers, employers, alumni, government) on the problems/challenges of assuring quality in higher education.
Suggested topics include but are not limited to the following:
- Defining quality in higher education (student learning, classroom instruction etc)
- Pedagogical and administrative strategies to promote and ensure quality
- Measuring quality
- Economic and educational implications of quality assurance
- Reconciling stakeholder interests
