QEP Team

SPC has a four-member team that focuses on the Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP): The QEP Director, the Faculty Chair, the Assessment Coordinator, and the Web and Instructional Technology Services (WITS) Liaison. The QEP Director maintains a full-time administrative position, and is responsible for managing the implementation of the QEP. The Faculty Chair is a faculty member who has assumed additional responsibilities in a supplemental capacity. The Faculty Chair advocates for the Faculty Champions and the members of the Academic Round Tables (ARTs) and the Quality Enhancement Committee (QEC) to assure implementation is faculty-driven, as outlined by the QEP. The Assessment Coordinator is responsible for the implementation of College-wide assessments as well as assisting faculty with the creation and implementation of internal assessments among the disciplines. The WITS Liaison assists with the communication between the QEP Team and the Web and Instructional Technology Services (WITS) Department, including maintaining the WITS-QEC Liaison Weblog. The WITS Department provides support and assistance with developing online training courses; creating and managing, with faculty input, a collection of critical thinking-related Reusable Learning Objects (RLOs); rolling out ANGEL ePortfolios, if feasible; and managing a Web repository of critical thinking tools and resources.
