Achieving Sustainable Academic Quality and Compliance Outcomes in the face of Covid-19

Achieving Sustainable Academic Quality and Compliance Outcomes in the face of Covid-19

HES Advisory Services is offering a three-part series commencing in August focused on  how institutions are tackling the acadmic quality and compliance challenges arising from Covid-19 in the short term and the long term. 

In the first session, Managing the current state of play, we explore the disruption that is occurring from a compliance perspective due to Covid-19. What challenges are you facing on a day-to-day basis to ensure requirements are met? Joined by especially invited guest speakers, we explore and workshop practical responses to these challenges. The date and time of this event will be available soon.


Safeguarding the Interim

Safeguarding the Interim: In session two we discuss what changes you have made and what has worked and what has not worked.  Where do the key risks sit? How is an equitable student experience created within an online world? How are we monitoring student outcomes and responding to improve? How have we substituted elements underpinning the student experience? what are the priorities from both an organisational control environment perspective and a learning and teaching perspective? What will continue, what will change once we transition out of Covid-19 to the ‘new normal’?


Preparing for the future

In this final session, Preparing for the future, we explore the lessons learned from the Covid-19 disruption and how they can be used to continue to drive and improve quality outcomes. While compliance remains important, we also need to look to enhancement and ensure differentiation in the market. We will explore what this looks like in a post Covid-19 world and what levers are needed to improve quality outcomes and drive innovation. Post-session, HES will identify ways to safeguard Academic Quality and Compliance risk within the context of various possible future environments, while also driving enhancement.
