Quality Culture: Understandings, Boundaries and Linkages
Harvey, Lee; Stensaker, Bjorn
European Journal of Education, v43 n4 p427-442 Dec 2008
As part of the process of enhancing quality, quality culture has become a taken-for-granted concept intended to support development and improvement processes in higher education. By taking a theoretical approach to examining quality culture, starting with a scholarly examination of the concept of culture, and exploring how it is related to quality, quality improvement and quality assurance, the aim of this paper is to create a better understanding of how one can make sense of quality culture, its boundaries but also its links to the fundamental processes of teaching and learning.
