Teaching & Learning

The Academic Board convenes a Teaching and Learning Committee to monitor and report on quality assurance processes for teaching and learning within MIT to ensure that day-to–day academic operations meet quality educational standards. The Teaching and Learning Committee also has responsibility for advising on policies and guidelines related to teaching and learning in MIT’s courses. The Teaching and Learning Committee is the principal advisory committee of the Academic Board dealing with teaching and learning.

The functions of the Teaching and Learning Committee are to:

  1. Advise the Academic Board on development and implementation of academic policies relating to all teaching and learning processes, including the admissions process, examinations, assessment, moderation and academic misconduct.
  2. Receive reports and respond to recommendations of the School Committees.
  3. Receive reports and review statistics relating to student appeals against assessment, grievances, discipline and misconduct.
  4. Receive and endorse the result ratification report of Ratification committees prior to publication of end of trimester results.
  5. Advise the Academic Board on any proposed changes to existing courses, including matters pertaining to delivery.
  6. Consider and make recommendations to Academic Board on all aspects of the development and accreditation or re-accreditation of higher education courses, the admission of students, teaching, assessment and requirements for graduation, prizes, awards and scholarships.
  7. Consider submissions and make recommendations to Academic Board in respect of the regular program of internal unit, course and school reviews within MIT.
  8. Review and advise the Academic Board about MIT teaching and learning facilities when required.
  9. Manage and report to Academic Board on the student evaluation of teaching and learning and relevant exit data.
  10. Regularly monitor student progress, attrition and completion rates, and graduate destinations and report the results to the Academic Board.
  11. Undertake benchmarking of course outcomes according to the MIT’s Quality Management System and advise the Academic Board of the outcomes of the benchmarking.
  12. Provide guidance and feedback to the Policy Committee on development of policies and procedures on teaching and learning operations and quality assurance.
  13. Approve an annual Professional Development Plan for academic staff to ensure that professional and discipline-based expertise is current, that teaching skills are maintained and updated and that scholarly activity is undertaken.  Report the Plan to the Academic Board.
  14. Advise the Academic Board how MIT may encourage a culture of scholarship throughout MIT.
  15. Act on any other referrals to it from the Academic Board.
