Title:
Risk management and cultural virtue in HE co-delivery arrangements
Authors:
Talbot, Jon; Perrin, David; Meakin, Denise
Abstract:
The paper is a case study of how risk assessment principles are used to quality assure delivery of higher education programmes by third parties. A three level system of Quality Assurance is described- external, university level and tutor level. In contrast to some who view QA as a constraint on traditional academic autonomy, the validity of each layer is recognised as performing an essential function but that quality has no meaning unless it is embedded in day to day academic culture and practice.
