No easy way to clarify higher education quality

By Ellen Hazelkorn, Hamish Coates and Alexander C McCormick. After a few sparkling decades, has the higher education quality movement sputtered and died, or has the field simply grown in complexity and significance with the overall enlargement of the field? This is an area in which research has struggled to keep pace with policy, let alone practice. More...

Information Quality, Liability, and Corrections

Information Quality, Liability, and Corrections
Interesting article on the role and nature of quality in online research reports. The author argues that the errors themselves are not the source of any misfortune arising; "problems start when it becomes difficult to discern the intended user of a piece of information, or when users expecting one quality level encounter information built to a different quality level." A primary research paper may contain errors, and so is not intended for the general public. More...

Electronic Databases and Google: How do we Promote Quality?

Electronic Databases and Google: How do we Promote Quality?
Peter Suber points to this discussion: "With libraries paying more and more each year in subscription fees for on-line databases, what are librarians doing to drive traffic to these resources rather than to Google and the web?" If it were up to me, universities and research organizations would cease buying books and periodicals, spending the money instead to fund online access of their own materials. More...

Building Quality Assurance into Metadata Creation

Building Quality Assurance into Metadata Creation
Interesting discussion that argues against four assumptions that underlie the absence of inquiry into how metadata should be created: the assumption that mediation by controlling authorities is undesirable, that rigorous metadata creation is too time consuming, that only authors and users of resources have the necessary knowledge to create meaningful metadata, and that metadata can be generated or resolved by machine. More...

Essential Principles of Quality

Essential Principles of Quality
This short (three page) document identifies, in point form, the essential principles of quality (according to the Southern Regional Education Board, Georgia) for online courses. The approach is fairly traditional, as would be expected. For some reason, copyright issues made it into the list, despite the fact that the payment of royalties (or not) in no way impacts the quality of a course. More...

Refereed Journals: Do They Insure Quality or Enforce Orthodoxy?

Refereed Journals: Do They Insure Quality or Enforce Orthodoxy?
A fascinating article charging - and making stick - the journal referee system of preserving orthodoxy and mediocrity at the expense of innovation. The first part of this paper is a must-read. Sadly, the rest falls flat. The author, after making such a convincing case by showing that Nobel laureates have had trouble getting their work published, asserts that the major victims of such orthodoxy is faith-based physics. More...
