Ian Giles's curator insight, January 18, 2013 9:03 AM

For me we need to decide:

  1) What is the purpose of Higher Education?

  2) What do we mean by high quality?

Then standard quality processes can be used.  

 

Should the sector, via QAA, define 1) and 2) or should this be left to each HEI.
