Draft HES report for comment
by Helene Mountford (CADAD Secretariat) - Thursday, 10 December 2015, 02:51 PM
 

Prof Christine Ewan has issued a draft report on her OLT-funded project on Higher Education Standards in a Disaggregated Learning Environment.  She stresses that it is "a work in progress" and welcomes comments. She is expecting to meet with the new HESP and TEQSA in early 2016 to discuss how the report might be useful to them in the lead up to the implementation of the revised Standards Framework. Broad based input from the sector would be valuable, particularly in three areas:

  • Is it factually and conceptually correct in any representation of information of which you are aware or may have provided?
  • Are there any additional aspects of this issue that have been missed and would be beneficial to incorporate?
  • Are there any relevant new developments that you are aware of and can provide a reference to?
If possible any comments would be much appreciated by the end of January. The draft report is here.
