Quality, Standards and Regulation: The start of a new era
A central feature of the Bradley review was its emphasis on quality. The third seminar in the 2009 Tertiary Education Policy Seminar Series will examine the role of the new agency, the Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency (TEQSA), in monitoring
quality and institutional performance in the context of compact
negotiation, target-setting and performance funding. How will
standards be defined and monitored? What new performance indicators
ought to be established? What new data need be collected? What role
might future quality audits play in evaluation and regulation?
