The DQP in Practice
We share with you the Quality Collaborative materials that our faculty at Virginia Commonwealth University found to be useful for improving internal and external alignment of courses and degree programs. Internal alignment comprised activities and tools to assure that course design and assignments targeted expected learning outcomes. External alignment activities and tools strengthened and clarified course and degree program alignment with the Degree Qualifications Profile.
