Westerheijden, Don F.; Hulpiau, Veerle; Waeytens, Kim
Tertiary Education and Management, v13 n4 p295-312 Dec 2007
Attention shifted in recent years from design and implementation to use and usefulness of quality assurance. Scientific studies focus increasingly on quality assurance's impact on curricula and individual teachers. Which factors influence follow-up activities and what is their relation to improvement of education? One factor that we single out is teachers' experience of quality assurance and how that influences the climate for quality work in higher education institutions, against the backdrop of the social context in which quality assurance was introduced. The article critically analyses a number of studies on the topic. (Contains 1 table and 11 endnotes.)
