CDTL will be organising its International Conference on Teaching and Learning on December 6–8, 2006. The Conference will examine the problems and challenges of assuring 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.
The deadline for abstracts has been extended to May 31, 2006.
