Craig McDonald © 2007 Quality, by design
Craig McDonald © 2007 Quality is not a thing-in-itself it is a judgement of the attributes of something Quality =//= QA (Quality Assurance) QA is an part of “professional” work, it is about quality cycle : plan – act – review – learn –plan – act – review …. explicating that we put a ‘floor’ under what we do “evidence-based" work work process, product and impact in terms of work aims (ISO9000) There should be no ‘quality assurance system’ separate from the work itself ACS accreditation: no quality portfolio, very light quality intro with pointers into the quality attributes of the work AUQA ? Quality – some views

Craig McDonald © 2007 ISE Unit Design Team Unit Development: 3 or 4 academics - to provide a sounding board, backup, a succession path, a quality check (eg. on subject scope), etc. Unit Design: (complements the unit outline) 1. Time: How students will spend 150 hours (3cp) estimate how much time you expect the normal student to spend in order to get a credit grade. Included in your estimate would be class contact, tutorial preparation time, assignment creation, study, self-paced lab time, etc. 2. Scholarship: How your unit is based in either in current research and/or current professional practice. As our unit designs develop we should start to explicitly say what 'warrant' the knowledge being presented has - it may be based in particular research articles or projects, Australian Standards, case studies with external partners (like ABS) or our own experiences, consultancies, etc. 3. Relevance: What industry contact & participation happens in the unit. 4. Use of ICT: What IT is being used, both for content (eg modeling tool in SAM) and for teaching (eg. WebCT) 5. Teaching: What pedagogical techniques are being tried or used. 6. Generic Skills: How the design of the unit satisfies the generic skills specified at http://teaching.ise.canberra.edu.au/acs/ 7. QA: How the learning outcomes are met and specifically assessed.
