Setting standards for the LLB: The Learning and Teaching Academic Standards Project

Kift, S. and Israel, M.ORCID: 0000-0002-1263-8699 (2010) Setting standards for the LLB: The Learning and Teaching Academic Standards Project. ALTA Newsletter, Edition One . pp. 19-20.



The Australian Government has announced the creation of a new quality and regulatory agency based on recommendations stemming from the Bradley Review of Higher Education. The Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency (TEQSA) will be established in 2011 and build on work previously undertaken by the Australian Universities Quality Agency (AUQA), but will operate with an extended brief. Of particular interest to ALTA members is that TEQSA is to be charged with evaluating the performance of institutions and their programs of study (such as the LLB) against a range of standards criteria. These criteria will include those set out in the revised Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF), which are to be aligned with the academic standards that discipline communities nationally agree represent the core ‗threshold learning outcomes‘ for their graduates.
