Introduction and Background
Higher education and training institutions and quality assurance agencies operating in India are required to establish quality assurance procedures for the purposes of further improving and maintaining the quality of education and training which is provided by higher education and training institutions. The involvement of students in the established quality assurance procedures is an essential element of such procedures. The requirement to involve students in quality assurance activities relating to programs and awards is further stated in the Standards and Guidelines for Quality Assurance in the indian Higher Education Area. Institutional and agency quality reviews which have taken place in higher education and training institutions over recent years have considered the issue of student involvement in quality assurance procedures. While such reviews have found that students are involved in most quality reviews undertaken in the Indian higher education system, the limited extent of student involvement at all stages of quality assurance procedures has been noted. A number of reports have recommended that Indian institutions need to ensure that students have the
opportunity to provide regular feedback on all modules, programs and services, that student bodies and students in general become progressively more aware of quality review processes and...
...HIGHEREDUCATION IN A REGIME OF GLOBALIZATION: DEVELOPING INTEGRAL PERSONALITY
(Man is neither mere intellect, nor the gross animal body, nor the heart or soul alone. A proper and harmonious combination of all the three is required for the making of the whole man and constitutes the true economics of education. After independence, India adopted the approach of planned development of the country. In the post – independence period,highereducation has expanded fast, and it is mostly public in nature. India has one of the largest Higher Educational Systems in world with more than 320 universities, 15,000 colleges, 4.8 lakh teachers and 12 million students. Since 1991, India is having structural adjustment in every sector including highereducation.

Teacher education courses deal with both theory and practical subjects. The teacher education curriculum framed has changed little over the years. While the children and their learning abilities have been ever changing, in teaching only the age old methods are still practised. Though teaching has moved from the teacher centric learning to child centric learning, teacher education still lies somewhere in between the two. In the present scenario this has formed a wide disparity between the education system and teaching education curriculum. Even today, the trainee teachers use the age old black board and chart display in a traditional way. And more importantly most of the classroom management techniques followed by the teachers are arrived through their own experiences, creativity and trial and error method. There is a lot more scope of including scientific and systematic approach to classroom management, based on child psychology and learning theories. Thus a modest attempt is made through this presentation to explore possibilities of including new teaching practices; whereby enhancing teacher education...

...QUALITY ASSURANCE IN HIGHEREDUCATION
Assistant Professor of Education
HigherEducation Institutions are frequently the focus of attention since they represent valuable resources for any country. They produce the educated men and women that often become the social, political, technological, economic, and religious leaders of the country. Because of the changes that have occurred in the restructuring of the education system as well s the wide-reaching transformation in education policy and practice in India, the above-mentioned concepts are frequently heard in discussions among educationists. Quality Assurance has become imperative for those who are concerned about the future of education in India. Without knowing what quality means, however, it is not possible to give serious consideration to Quality Assurance. Hence a short overview of a few notations of quality is offered.
What is Quality?
The abstract notion of quality cannot be framed by means of a single definition or description. It is not neutral or self-evident. Quality is highly contested since people in different contexts have different understandings of what quality is a multi-faceted concept, comprising...

HE525 Student Issues in Higher Learning
Dr. Tanya Saddler
The film Higher Learning (1995) depicts many of the issues that the modern day student faces in highereducation. From lack of customer service from administrative entities to sexual identity confusion, a college student must meet many challenges and obstacles in and out of the classroom to successfully navigate through these formative years. In this analysis we will look at one specific issue in highereducation, the issue of racism. Further, we will look at a racial identity development models to determine what the needs of students are and in what ways the institution, through its faculty and administration, can meet those needs.
“Without struggle, there is no progress” quotes Professor Phipps in the film Higher Learning (Singleton, 1995). This famous Fredrick Douglass quote is the epitome of racial identity development theory. Malik, the African American student in the film, is faced with several issues as he enters highereducation. In the opening scenes we see him walking through a sea of predominantly white students, as he enters the elevator to get to his dormitory, a white female student in the...
StudentInvolvement & improved decision quality
There has been a strong trend amongst teaching circles in recent years involving enhancing the role of students in the decision making process and quality assurance of their education. Within Australia, there has been recognition of the importance of adequate preparation of students and their facilitation of this process (Ainley, Batten, Collins & Withers, 1998). As these students have a vested interest in obtaining a both an improved and enhanced learning experience, involvement often begins with classroom decisions. This participation can manifest itself through active feedback, and a contribution to the learning and teaching of their subject area. A representation of student views can also be involved in the decision making process via a student union or other representative body. This essay will explain the decision making process and its influence on both the individual and the group. Potential challenges will also be outlined regarding the effectiveness of involving individuals in the decision making process.
Decision making itself is based upon the cognitive process of reaching a decision. This involves a position, opinion or judgment being reached after consideration. A choice between alternative courses of actions is...
...Prior to the Civil War, highereducation for African American students was nearly nonexistent. The small percentage who did receive education, such as Thurgood Marshall, often studied in informal and sometimes aggressive settings. Some were forced to educate themselves completely. Some schools for elementary and secondary training existed, such as the Institute for Colored Youth, a school started in the early 1830’s by a group of Philadelphia Quakers. A college education was also offered to a limited number of scholars at schools like Oberlin College in Ohio and Berea College in Kentucky. Between 1861 and 1870, the American Missionary Association (AMA) founded seven black colleges and 13 normal (teaching) schools. Many of these institutions, along with the private historical black colleges and universities founded later by the AMA, the Freedmen’s Bureau, and black churches, became the backbone of black highereducation, producing African American leaders for generations to come.(collegeview.com)
In the years succeeding the Civil War, with the 13th Amendment’s abolition of slavery and reconstruction in the South, things began to change. “In November 1866, shortly after the end of the Civil War, members of the First Congregational Society of Washington considered establishing a theological seminary for the education of African-American clergymen. Within a few...
