While the first three modules in the Training on Internal Quality Assurance series dealt with questions about designing quality management systems, tools and procedures as well as quality enhancement in teaching and learning, module 4 discusses possibilities and limitations of an information management in higher education institutions.
Managing information is always a challenge when you have different groups of stakeholders and a large amount of data from various sources. The course book discusses on (performance) indicators and the challenges to use them in the higher education context. It gives an introduction on how to establish a data-based reporting system at higher education institutions for different purposes and stakeholder groups.
Based on the course book, readers get an idea of dealing with information in a responsible way. They learn to recognise and consider opportunities and limitations of quantitative and qualitative indicators as measures for quality assurance of processes at higher education institutions. This book is best read in conjunction with the other modules of the series to get a better understanding of designing quality management systems in higher education institutions.
