Building Quality into New Forms of Undergraduate Education.
Maher, Tom
This document suggests a number of ways of thinking about quality control in those undergraduate programs that depart from commonly accepted forms and objectives. Institutionalization and evolution of these new departures are required if our currently accepted model of mass undergraduate education is to be transformed into a more effective educational setting. To facilitate quality control it becomes necessary to think of concepts such as "reflection" and to discuss the implications for curricular goal-setting and for assessment. Since some new departures are extrapolations of existing practices, existing evaluation questions and procedures can be extrapolated along with the programs. Institutions should evolve their indicators of whether their students and their programs are really achieving the objectives set forth. Follow-up students may provide the key in the efforts to communicate the worth of new modes of education; however, it is imperative that a conscious attempt is made to build networks of working relationships among those involved in determining equality in mass undergraduate education.
