Hi, I was hoping to obtain peoples opinions on quality assurance procedures that are undertaken in your FE college, specifically the impact they have upon your role as a lecturer. I'm currently undertaking a PGCE PCET part time and I'm undertaking the research as part of my Widening Professional Practice module. I will be researching the specific strategies that my college has put in place, the electronic individual learning plan - which holds information such as Subject Reviews, Initial Assessment and VARK, Attendance Records, SLDD support, Log of tutorial activities and study and basic skills feedback. This eILP is for both student and lecturer to record and follow developments throughout the students time at college. I will also be looking into the effectiveness of tutorials and the impact they have on students and lecturers.By analysing these procedures I'm hoping to see if they make an improvement in attendance and retainment figures and also if they have an impact on whether a student passes a course (particularly, in this instance, AS Media Studies). It would be really useful and greatly appreciated if some FE lecturers could share their experiences and opinions on the Quality Assurance procedures that their college implements. Do you use the same strategies? Are they effective? Do they take more time away from the classroom? Increase your workload? I hope that you can help and I shall look forward to reading your responses. Many thanks in advance.
