Quality assurance is integral to the success of any educational organisation. But what does this term mean and who is responsible? During this topic you will explore this term and find out more about the key players. Perhaps begin with the Tertiary Education Commission overview about quality assurance.
In this section, we'll refer to two simple case studies (Emilia and Brett) that we introduced in the previous section on Educational design theory. We'll also introduce models such as the PDSA (Plan, Do, Study, Act) cycle and look at how these are applied in an education context.
