Rhetoric and Reality: The Irish Experience of Quality Assurance
Fitzsimons, Camilla
Adult Learner: The Irish Journal of Adult and Community Education, p15-32 2017
This paper shares the Irish adult educator's experiences of Quality Assurance (QA). Educators are found to be largely supportive of QA but contradictions emerge. These include philosophical tensions, inconsistent moderation and incongruence between the stated values of QA and a more powerful government-led employability discourse.
