Quality Control and Quality Assurance in Teacher Training Institutions: Messages from Botswana.
Hopkin, A. G.
Teaching and Teacher Education, v15 n6 p697-713 Aug 1999
External factors, such as university affiliation, can help improve teacher-training programs. Using the University of Botswana (UB) as an example, this paper discusses quality control and assurance; evaluates their impact on courses offered, final examinations, and teaching practice; and evaluates operational drawbacks of UB's system, suggesting that quality-control mechanisms should be complemented by more effective quality assurance.
