The Academic Planning and Quality Assurance Office (APQA) works closely with Education Council (EdCo), with a focus on developing and maintaining high quality programs and ensuring effective educational policies.
APQA and EdCo set an annual schedule for program approval timelines [PDF] to guide program areas in planning their proposal submissions.
Education Council has established the following committees to facilitate Council business. APQA members serve as resource members on the committees as appropriate:
- Programming Committee – reviews all proposals for new programs and major changes, and makes recommendations to EdCo
- Policy Committee – reviews all new and revised educational policies and associated procedures, and makes recommendations to EdCo
- Executive Committee – coordinating committee for all EdCo activities
- Education Technology and Learning Design Sub-Committee – provides strategic guidance and recommendations regarding the implementation and use of educational technology
Key information on EdCo (including members, Bylaws, meeting minutes, etc.) can be found on the EdCo site.
