Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP)

The purpose of the QEP is to improve student learning through course redesign within the Core Curriculum. This redesign reconceptualizes course delivery so that student learning is more interactive and employs multiple delivery models, is more uniform across sections of Core courses, and is more tightly integrated with the technological skills that students possess when entering college.

The learning goals for the QEP constitute improved proficiency in written communication, increased understanding and application of quantitative concepts and methods, and additional emphasis on the synthesis of concepts, and data, and skills that demonstrate critical thinking.

Over the next five years, The QEP Steering Committee will oversee many activities connected to QEP implementation, including sending faculty cohorts to the National Center of Academic Transformation (NCAT) Conference for training and information on course redesign, supporting peer seminars on course redesign and delivery options, and retrieving and analyzing data on student learning and achievement from various local and national assessments of particular course redesigns within the Core Curriculum.

Over the next five years, the SACS Leadership Team and the QEP Steering Committee hope to transform the delivery of all the courses within the Core Curriculum in order to ensure that best practices and model pedagogies are incorporated into Core courses, as well as to transform the culture of student learning, across campus constituencies.

Access to the QEP is also available through Moodle, ULM's online Course Management System. For instructions on how to access Moodle, please view this PDF.
