CUHK regards teaching and learning as a core function and has developed explicit systems and procedures to ensure and enhance quality. These systems support the main teaching and learning goals articulated in the University's Strategic Plan. As the University has grown in size and complexity, the quality assurance systems have evolved and, increasingly, responsibilities are articulated and devolved, with formal oversight and documentation.
Internal Quality Assurance
The Integrated Framework for Curriculum Development and Review (IF) sets the parameters for the review of both undergraduate and postgraduate programmes, which are under the oversight of the Senate Committee on Teaching and Learning. The IF has become an important component in the quality assurance framework for formal studies. It specifies the procedures for course and programme reviews and for professional development of teachers for the undergraduate, taught postgraduate, sub-degree, professional and continuing education programmes. As strengthened by initiatives from the University Grants Committee (UGC), Outcomes-Based Approaches (OBA) to teaching and learning are also adopted.
