Academic Board Reviews Phase 3
The focus of the Phase Three reviews will be on the faculty culture which supports, and the processes that lead to, continuous quality improvement in academic activities. This focus is chosen to ensure both that the Academic Board reviews are complementary to the other performance management activities in which faculties are now engaged and that they support faculty activities pursuing academic quality.
The focus on quality assurance is primarily directed to an assessment of process: how your faculty systematically integrates planning, action and review to achieve performance outcomes and stated objectives.
The Faculty’s Self Evaluation Report (SER) is the core of the review. The purpose is to clearly describe the activities and processes of the faculty to enable the:
- Faculty to draw their own conclusions on the quality of their processes as they support the faculty’s strategic objectives
- Review Team to assess the robustness and validity of the faculty’s judgements.
The Phase 3 guidelines are based on the 2007 Baldrige National Quality Program Education Criteria for Performance Excellence.
