The Quality Enhancement Task Force has been created to sort through suggestions for the QEP, narrow the topic, create the SLOs and assessment, and make sure the plan is ready for implementation in 2012. For more information, please contact Grace Haddox at email@example.com or any of the Task Force members.
The Focus Groups conducted during the spring 2012 semester determined that the topic for EPCC’s Quality Enhancement Plan is “Learning about the Community as a Community.” During the fall semester, a draft of Student Learning Outcomes was created and a call for pilot projects went out. Nineteen teachers are piloting projects about the community, and students’ progress will be assessed through self-reporting a rubric completed by the piloting professor.
The Quality Enhancement Task Force created a survey in fall 2010 that reflected faculty suggestions for a possible QEP. The survey was posted in both English and Spanish and was sent via e-mail to all faculty, staff, and students.
The results of the survey showed that faculty, staff, students, and administration were most interested in pursuing a topic that covers academics and programs, the learning environment, or student / teacher communication.
Focus Groups will run during the Spring 2011 semester to narrow these general fields to a topic for the QEP.
