Quality in Higher Education: A Theoretical Study
Eveline M. CALDWELL
Those responsible for design and delivery of programmes of higher education are faced with many challenges not the least of which is the assurance and control of qualify in their work. While quality in higher education is assessed by the state, the academic community and the market in different ways and for different purposes and as the locus of control of decisions relating to quality is shifting from an autonomous academic community to the state and the market, nevertheless the key aspects of quality assurance in higher education are critical self-reflection by those involved and dialogue between academic staff and their peers in the wider community.
