Where Are the Quantum Jumps in Quality Assurance? Developments of a Decade of Research on a Heavy Particle.
Westerheijden, Don F.
Higher Education Policy, v38 n2 p233-54 Mar 2000
Reviews the literature on developments in quality assurance in European higher education over the last decade. Applies the metaphor of sub-atomic structure to order the literature, moving from publications closely related to the practice of quality assurance methods to more theoretical publications. Identifies some seminal publications as "quantum jumps." Also identifies recent trends at the system and institutional levels. (Author/DB)
