Quality Standards Type           Input

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

          When reporting operations for this indicator, describe processes or show operational results covering at least the following issues:

          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

           In evaluating a suitable scoring level, consider the big picture and overall operational results that enable a program to keep up-to-date, and aligned with labor market and national demands.

System & Mechanism 

The curriculum has a system and mechanism to design courses and define subject matters as follows:

1.) Our Bachelor of Education program  focuses on developing skills and expertise needed in the profession of teaching English, through integration of knowledge in innovation, information technology, modern educational materials, and effective classroom management, together with a variety of activities to help achieve maximum efficiency in the teaching profession.
