Strategies and Policies seem to be removed from Quality Assurance. Is there a feedback route for reports on non-conformance? Not just things that go wrong, could be suggestions from procedures that turn out not to work very well.

I don't get the impression there is much system review. Do the policies and strategy ideas come from a national source or is there involvement from the local institution, university or department?

the OpenLearn initiative is a good example
of a top‐down controlled QA model, with clearly articulated quality processes and
identified roles (authors, editors, technical support, quality assurers, etc.). Again this
can be seen as both a consequence of the unique position in the UK as a large‐scale
distance educational institution (which a well established, Fordish‐production model
for course production and presentation)

Fordism has got some critics. But this can be discussed within a framework of quality ideas.

More later.
