Quality Standards Description:

           Although all curricular programs that are offered by educational institutions must be approved by the Office of the Higher Education Commission, and updated every 5 years, administrators must take responsibility for seeing that course contents are up-to-date and keep pace with constantly changing technology. The courses offered – both required and elective – should be managed in a learner-centered manner in order to satisfy student and labor market needs. For graduate programs, the emphasis should be in developing student research skill and self-directed learning

          5.1.1 Curriculum Design and Development in accordance with Context, Innovation and Changing Technology

          5.1.2 Stakeholders Participation

          5.1.3 Data Utilization from Assessing the Success according to the objectives of the Curriculum to Develop the Curriculum
