Aligning Teaching Quality Indicators with University Reward Mechanisms
Kulski, Martijntje; Groombridge, Barbara
Tertiary Education and Management, v10 n1 p45-59 Mar 2004
Teaching quality emerged as a significant issue in higher education during the 90s. This led to the implementation of numerous quality control, assurance and enhancement schemes as institutions attempted to stay abreast of demands from various stakeholders in a rapidly changing educational environment. More recently, with the establishment of the Australian University Quality Agency (AUQA) in 2000, there is now further impetus to review quality schemes in Australian universities. This paper describes how a teaching award programme may impact on planning and review processes within university departments and highlights how the alignment of teaching award criteria with external quality audit requirements can lead to cross-institutional benefits for enhancing the quality of teaching.
