QEP Phase 2 Focus Area Finalised
There will be only one focus area, curriculum, with four sections: curriculum renewal and transformation, diversity and inclusivity, curriculum development capacity and quality, and participation in curriculum design and development. Phase 2 will only last for one year. The focus area document can be downloaded here.
A joint workshop was held on 28 June 2016 for DVCs Teaching and Learning and Academic and Directors of Teaching and Learning on Systemic Approaches to Student Success. The workshop was led by Prof Tim Renick, Vice President for Enrolment Management and Student Success at Georgia State University, and the workshop facilitation was done by the Director: Institutional Audits.
QEP Institutional visits
As the last part of the QEP process for Phase 1, one-day visits were carried out to public institutions by two peer reviewers and the Director: Institutional Audits. Early in 2017 institutions will receive a report, based on the visit and their own baseline and final reports, on the improvements they have made in the four QEP focus areas, institutional-level engagement with, and support for, enhancement of student success and suggestions for further improvements.
