What is Quality assurance? How the UHD approaches and apply it on campus?
Welcome to the website of the Directorate of Quality Assurance (DQA) at the UHD. One of the main missions of the Quality Assurance body at the UHD is to assure the quality of teaching/learning. The vision of the DQA is to ensure the quality of education that meets the requirements for sustainable development. The DQA uses G-Suite for Education to run the process of assuring the quality of teaching/learning and promoting an e-teaching among the teaching-staff of the UHD.

The Bologna Process is a series of ministerial meetings and agreements between European countries to ensure comparability in the standards and quality of higher-education qualifications. The process has created the European Higher Education Area under the Lisbon Recognition Convention. It is named after the University of Bologna, where the Bologna declaration was signed by education ministers from 29 European countries in 1999.
University of Human Development highly values and appreciates student feedback. Student
input is the nexus between quality learning and the development and management of teaching
activities, decision making and strategic policies that help maintain educational standards. UHD
teams of experts meticulously observe and process student feedback to design, create and employ
measures that help enhance learning quality. This is an integral part of UHD’s quality assurance
system. UHD’s assessment teams of quality assurance deem student feedback on teaching
quality, learning environment, and administrative efficiency to be of eminent importance that
contribute to and facilitate better learning quality. UHD commits itself to the maintenance of
optimized policies and procedures that are continually assessed and engendered through
collaborative partnership to ensure the implementation of supporting practices that focus on
students’ concerns and recommendations.
At large, UHD views teachers’ portfolios holistically. The more traditional outlooks may define
portfolios conventionally as collections of certificates, diplomas, CGPAs, standard test scores,
educational and academic documents, formal evaluations expressed in referee letters, records of
publications, conference attendance, etc. UHD essentially considers teachers’ portfolios to
transcend these conventional attempts to define a “portfolio” and rather takes into account an
individual’s personal and interpersonal skills and their teaching and educational philosophy. This
view informs UHD and the instructors likewise about the levels of success in both of the
teaching and learning areas. It provides an opportunity for the instructors to assess their own
success and evaluate their teaching abilities in light of their professional development. UHD
continually tries to enhance its instructors’ teaching and personal experience. This helps both
parties highlight the areas where instructor’s might need to further develop their skills to
facilitate learning outcomes.
Continues Academic Development
UHD has adopted the belief that learning does
not stop where one is given a certificate that marks the completion of the
requirements for the academic programs. Academic staff at UHD join a variety of
different academic activities to promote their provision of the learning
material to their students and further refine their understanding of their own
learning. The activities are largely marked by seminars, book clubs, and
readings sessions that are mostly held weekly. The seminars and readings are
announced on different platforms so that interested academics, researchers and
students can join and share, discuss, and evaluate ideas and interpretations
together. It provides a unique opportunity for the instructors and the students
to be involved in collaborative and active learning together. This helps reduce
the affective filters and assists in better student engagement with research
ideas in their fields of study. Discussions and analyses encourages academic
excellence and promotes research ideas.
