What Is Quality in Higher Education?
Green, Diana, Ed.
This book reflects some of the debate following publication of the 1991 Further and Higher Education Bill, and it also draws on preliminary findings of a national research project funded by a partnership of government, business, and higher education that was designed to develop and test quality assessment methods. Chapters are organized in three sections: "What Is Quality in Higher Education?"; "Models from Within British Higher Education"; and "Models from Beyond British Higher Education." Chapter titles are: (1) "What Is Quality in Higher Education? Concepts, Policy and Practice" (Diana Green); (2) "Quality in Higher Education: A Funding Council Perspective" (William H. Stubbs); (3) "Defining and Measuring the Quality of Teaching" (Baroness Pauline Perry); (4) "Inspecting Quality in the Classroom: An HMI Perspective" (Terry Melia); (5) "Quality Audit in the Universities" (Carole Webb); (6) "Quality and its Measurement: A Business Perspective" (Jim Finch); (7) "Royal Mail: Developing a Total Quality Organization" (Ian Raisbeck); (8) "Quality in Higher Education: An International Perspective" (Malcolm Frazer); and (9) "Looking Ahead" (Diana Green). (Chapters contain endnotes.) (JLS)
