Using quality assurance processes to improve teaching and learning outcomes

Iris Vardi and Ruth Marquis
School of Occupational Therapy, Curtin University of Technology
Ensuring quality in the educational experience that we offer students is an issue of concern to students, universities, professional bodies and government bodies. How can quality be ascertained and improved in a manner that is positive, relevant to and inclusive of all teaching staff? This session describes one way in which this is being achieved in the School of Occupational Therapy at Curtin University. The quality assurance program put in place was developed in consultation with teaching staff. It aims to provide a framework for improving teaching by examining quality issues and educational aims at a variety of levels, including at the level of the curriculum, the unit and the classroom. This session will outline the strategies adopted, and their impacts to date on the teaching program in the school and the learning outcomes of students.
