Achievements and Consequences of Two Decades of Quality Assurance in Higher Education: A Personal View from the Edge
Houston, Don
Quality in Higher Education, v16 n2 p177-180 Jul 2010
While the past two decades have seen significant expansion and harmonisation of quality assurance mechanisms in higher education, there is limited evidence of positive effects on the quality of core processes of teaching and learning. The paradox of the separation of assurance from improvement is explored. A shift in focus from surveillance to systemic approaches to improvement is proposed.
