SHEEC Indicators of Enhancement - Invitation to tender

SHEEC Indicators of Enhancement - Invitation to tender | Quality assurance of eLearning | Scoop.it

The Scottish Higher Education Enhancement Committee (SHEEC) manages a range of activities in supporting the enhancement of the student learning experience in Scottish higher education. One example of this is through its planning and direction of Enhancement Themes. SHEEC members have an institutional responsibility for teaching and learning, and every higher education institution is represented on the committee.

 

Through its support for and promotion of quality enhancement, SHEEC ensures that higher education in Scotland remains at the forefront of developing and enhancing the student learning experience and student success.

 

The Indicators of Enhancement (see Annex A) were proposed as a developmental activity by the Scottish Funding Council Joint Quality Review Group in 2008. They were designed by a working group chaired by Professor Peter Easy (former Senior Vice Principal, Edinburgh Napier University) and managed by SHEEC.

 

In the course of the last year, SHEEC has recognised the need to revisit the Indicators of Enhancement to ensure they are as useful as possible to individual institutions for internal reflection about enhancement and useful to SHEEC, as a way of facilitating sector-wide discussions about enhancement. There is also increasing awareness of the need to demonstrate impact of enhancement activities and the indicators may provide a useful tool for institutions and the sector.

 

Individuals or groups are invited to submit an application to review and develop the Indicators.

 

Proposal

We are seeking individuals or groups to consider:

- the current level and type of use being made of the Indicators across the sector and general assessment of whether they remain fit for purpose

- the coherence of the Indicators as a set and how they are understood

-development of a refreshed set of Indicators of Enhancement that are useful to individual institutions for internal reflection about enhancement

This work will be achieved through individual interviews and group discussions and be supported by a review of and taking cognisance of published material available on evaluating enhancement approaches.

The outcome of the work will be delivered to SHEEC by May 2013.

The indicators of enhancement were designed to facilitate informed discussions at all levels within institutions about the enhancement of the student experience. They were not designed to be used as a check list for Enhancement-led institutional review (ELIR) or as a set of performance indicators.

 

The indicators of enhancement are a contribution to the overall environment which supports the enhancement of higher education in Scotland.

 

The concept of the Indicators arose from the Joint Quality Review Group, a working group set up by the Scottish Funding Council to review quality assurance and enhancement. The development of the Indicators formed part of the activities for the Scottish higher education sector during the interim year in 2007-08. They were designed by a working group chaired by Professor Peter Easy (Senior Vice Principal, Napier University) and managed by the Scottish Higher Education Enhancement
