Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP)
Have you heard
the QEP buzz going around campus? According to a recent communication
from the QEP Steering Committee:
The UNT QEP, a major component in the Southern
Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS) reaffirmation and
accreditation process, is expected to be approved by SACS on-site review
team in April. The plan requires the university to identify and tackle
an issue or topic that is directly related to the enhancement of
student-learning outcomes. UNT is accredited by SACS and must
periodically undergo a process of reaffirmation.
The goal of UNT's QEP is to transform instruction and student-learning
outcomes in large-enrollment undergraduate courses by engaging,
encouraging and enabling faculty members to investigate and apply
innovative instructional techniques. This will enhance the overall
quality of instruction, improve student access to courses and strengthen
the efficiency of the learning and teaching process and, ultimately,
lead to greater student success.
Several UNT QEP Faculty Coffees have been scheduled to
allow faculty members to learn about UNT's Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP).
The first coffee was held March 3. Additional coffees are set for:
4:30 to 6 p.m. March 21 in the University Union, Diamond
4 to 5 p.m. March 29 at the Research Park Library.
Each coffee will include a brief overview of the UNT QEP
and a question-and-answer session. Coffee, tea and cake will be served.
There also will be chances to win great UNT QEP door prizes.
