SPEAQ FLYER

The SPEAQ flyer introduces the SPEAQ project based on the LanQua quality model. It explains the overall aims and objectives of the SPEAQ project, the LanQua quality model, the three ‘quality circles’ (students, academics and quality managers), the SPEAQ quality workshop and the nine institutional projects carried out by the nine SPEAQ partner universities.

SPEAQ PARTNERS PROJECTS

Drawing on the results of interviews with the three ‘quality circles’ (students, academics and quality managers), SPEAQ partners developed small-scale projects which aimed to improve the ways in which quality processes are implemented and experienced within higher education institutions and to facilitate connections and dialogue between the three quality circles. These projects have been very diverse as they were intended to respond to local issues, as well as to address more universal concerns, identified in the summary reports from year one.

SPEAQ WORKSHOP TOOLKIT

Other outcomes from SPEAQ include practical tools to support wider implementation of the project approach. These consist of a short workshop which was devised and run by all partners in order to provide a forum to discuss quality issues and to bring together members of all three ‘quality circles’ which is something which, our evidence shows, rarely happens in higher education. The workshop materials can be freely used and adapted. You can download the SPEAQ workshop toolkit below:

SPEAQ DATA COLLECTION AND PROJECT GUIDANCE NOTES

SPEAQ DATA COLLECTION REPORTS

Working with ten partners the SPEAQ project explored the ways in which quality in higher education is viewed and practised by three main stakeholder groups: students, academics and quality managers. The results of the initial data collection exercise which used semi-structured interviews and focus groups can be downloaded below:
