Excited to hear that Georgia Tech's next Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP), part of the institution's accreditation process, will be related to Transformative Teaching and Learning, thus putting our students first.
"Georgia Tech is set to embark on a new Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) and is seeking input and topic ideas from all faculty, staff, and students. QEP topic selection is a key part of the Institute’s reaffirmation of accreditation with the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC), scheduled for 2025.
As outlined by SACSCOC, the QEP is a carefully designed course of action that addresses a well-defined topic or issue related to enhancing student learning and student success. Georgia Tech’s next QEP topic will be tied closely to the Transformative Teaching and Learning goals identified in the Institute’s strategic plan.
“The reaccreditation process ensures academic quality, accountability, and continuous improvement — areas that align closely with our strategic goals and values,” said Steve McLaughlin, provost and executive vice president for Academic Affairs. “The QEP is not only a required part of that process, but it is also an incredible opportunity for us to work together to create new ways to serve our students and our community and continue to realize our strategic plan.”
A QEP topic selection committee was appointed by McLaughlin in October, and is co-chaired by Laurence Jacobs, senior vice provost for Education and Learning, and Steven Girardot, vice provost for Undergraduate Education. The committee will host open town halls to receive input, feedback, and ideas from Georgia Tech faculty, staff, and students." More information HERE
