CEBE Conference, 'QAA and Teaching Quality in the 
Built Environment', Monday, 3rd December 2001, 
the TechnoCentre, Coventry.  

The Centre for Education in the Built Environment (CEBE), 
would like to draw your attention to a key one-day event, 'QAA 
and Teaching Quality in the Built Environment', on Monday, 3rd 
December, 2001, at the TechnoCentre, Coventry.  This event is 
intended to allow departments and schools to get one step 
ahead as they prepare for QA audits.  The government's 
intentions regarding quality regulation and enhancement 
changed very rapidly earlier this year, leading to the 
HEFCE/QAA/UUK/SCOP consultation paper Quality Assurance 
in Higher Education.  Many things remain uncertain at present, 
including the status and role of subject Benchmarks; the 
process for sampling subjects for review; and the enhancement 
versus regulatory role of the QAA.  

At this year's conference, CEBE have invited Peter Milton from 
the QAA to explain and discuss the new QA review proposals 
and outcomes from the consultation process.  You will also 
have the opportunity to exchange views and learn from the 
experience of those departments who have already
completed the review process.  The day should be particularly 
useful for Heads of Department; those charged with 
responsibility for overseeing learning and teaching; and team 
leaders dealing with professional accreditation and internal 
quality audits. 

Further event details, a programme and a downloadable 
booking form may be found on the CEBE website at  
http://cebe.cf.ac.uk/   Please note that places at the event are
strictly limited and early bookings are advised.  Booking forms 
for the conference should be returned to Coventry University 
Enterprises Ltd at the address stated on the form. The deadline 
for booking  is Monday, 26th November 2001.
