12 Every time I learn something new, it pushes some old stuff out of my brain

13 Key points in Review Timeline  Development of the self-study documents  Site visit by review team  Review by various levels of governance, leading to Final Assessment Report and Implementation Plan

14 An Effective Self-Study is: Reflective, analytical, inquiry-based (SWOT) Focussed on student learning Curriculum aligned to learning outcomes A collaborative process involving all faculty

15 Unit Staff Role in Self-Study  Providing support for QUQAP committee  Possibly helping arrange faculty session (retreat?) to review curriculum and learning outcomes.

16 Staff Role in Self-Study (cont)  Project management; keeping development of self-study on track  Collating and formatting documents, including faculty CVs  Ensuring partners have been consulted (CTL, OIRP, Equity Office, Library services)  Arranging for involvement/consultation of students
