01. Alignment of total quality management in the higher education context

Abstract: This paper aims to adjust the concept of Total Quality Management (TQM) and make it fit for use in higher education institutes. The article describes the results of a design science research. Based on experiences in Egypt and the Netherlands, the characteristics of higher education are defined as well as the specifics of educational processes. These lead to a translation of TQM in educational terms. The experiences result in a model that can be used as framework to implement TQM in higher education institutes. The experiences that form the base for the design are limited to two countries with two different cultures. There is no evidence concerning the use of the model in any other country in the world. It is known that there have been many initiatives to implement TQM in higher education. The combination with quality management in teaching and learning models (Transformative Mode, An Engagement Model of Program Quality, University of Learning Model, A Model for a Responsive University) is scarce as well as application in two such different countries.
Keywords: Total Quality Management, TQM, teaching and learning, holistic quality model, higher education.

Abstract: Formative assessment plays a crucial role in improving the quality of teaching and learning process. However, this activity has superficially concerned in Vietnam whilst summative assessment (specifically the summative tests) has experienced a long dominant period for assessing student’s academic achievement. This paper highlights the outstanding issues of formative assessment practice in real -context teaching. In addition, we present some implementation measures to use summative tests for improving teaching and learning quality in high school. Proposed examples in this article are illustrated in Biology teaching.
Keywords: Formative assessment, tests, improving quality, teaching and learning, Biology teaching.

Abstract: Experiential learning is known as an active learning approach that can help students confront the challenges of abstract Mathematics concepts. This paper presents a sample of Mathematics lesson which adapts the experiential learning model developed by David Kolb. The theoretical knowledge of experiential learning, the nature of mathematics education, and an exemplary mathematics lesson based on experiential learning approach, are also revised. The study proposes some resolutions for the upcoming renewal in the 2018 curriculum and suggestions for further education research.
Key words: experiential learning, teaching and learning, mathematics education.
