Quality Indicators for Teacher Education
Quality Assurance in the education sector is one of the major initiatives of the Commonwealth of Learning (COL) in its Three-Year Plan for 2006-09. To achieve the outcome of enhanced quality at all levels of education, COL has been focusing its attention on quality assurance in higher education and teacher education. We are proud of our association with the National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC) of India in recent years, which has built capacity in quality assurance among personnel at all levels of the system. The partnership has also led to development of a quality assurance framework and resource materials for assessing and assuring the quality of higher education and teacher education institutions.This Toolkit contains, first, a package of Quality Indicators listed within a set of quality aspects and categories and, second, a collection of case studies drawn out of best practices from across the Commonwealth linked to one or more of the indicators. The Toolkit can be of use for both internal and external assessment. A teacher education institution could use the toolkit for formative evaluation involving periodical quality assessment followed by taking appropriate action based on the assessment results. It will also be helpful for the Ministries of Education or quality assurance agencies to use the toolkit for the external assessment of institutions in order to proffer appropriate advice.
