A risk-based approach to course quality assurance
Towers, Stephen J., Alderman, Lyn, Nielsen, Samuel, & McLean, S. Vianne (2010) A risk-based approach to course quality assurance. In Proceedings of AuQF2010 : Quality in Uncertain Times, Australian Universities Quality Agency, Gold Coast, Australia, pp. 116-128.
A decade ago, Queensland University of Technology (QUT) developed an innovative annual Courses Performance Report, but through incremental change, this report became quite labour-intensive. A new risk-based approach to course quality assurance, that consolidates voluminous data in a simple dashboard, responds to the changing context of the higher education sector. This paper will briefly describe QUT’s context and outline the second phase of implementation of this new approach to course quality assurance. The main components are: Individual Course Reports (ICRs), the Consolidated Courses Performance Report (CCPR), Underperforming Courses Status Update and the Strategic Faculty Courses Update (SFCU). These components together form a parsimonious and strategic annual cycle of reporting and place QUT in a positive position to respond to future sector change
