acedemic architecture

Establishment Unit Principal Advisor: Vikki Roadley

Members: Deborah Young (Ara); Janen Kapa (Otago Polytechnic); Kieran Hewitson (Toi Ohomai); Dr Leanne Ivil (Whitireia and WelTec);  Luana Te Hira (MIT); Monica Kershaw (EWRB); Phil Edwards (TEU); Rachael Dippie (MITO); Sarah Proctor-Thomson (NMIT); Toby Beaglehole (Connexis)

What we've done

We've defined our scope and reviewed previous work completed through sector workshops to make sure we weren't reinventing the wheel. We're mindful of reflecting on-job and off-job quality assurance in the new world of a national institute with regional campuses.

What we're working on this month

We're doing an environmental scan of best practice and innovative models, capturing the student voice from the student union perspective and academic board representatives, and the business voice. We're collating current structures in order to draw the best aspects from quality assurance models in both ITP and ITO contexts.

Coming up

An early draft of our recommendations and thinking will be presented to the Establishment Board on 10 December.
