Institutional standards and frameworks

Maintaining standards and assuring quality

In order to comply with the standards set by the governing bodies of the tertiary education sector, institutions devise specific frameworks, plans and guidelines to address the specific learning and teaching needs and expectations of their strategic planning. Whether university wide, or to support a particular teaching practice, these goals, objectives, plans and tools ensure the respectability and quality within the products and services the institution delivers.

The following web pages provide academic teaching staff with a brief overview of some of the frameworks, standards and guidelines to support quality course and curriculum design and delivery in higher education.
