Review Workshop

Academic programs and units are reviewed on a regular basis under the University of Toronto Quality Assurance Process (UTQAP). The VPAP Office hosts an annual workshop to help units and divisions plan for external reviews.

This year’s workshop was held on Wednesday, April 5. View the presentation (PDF).

Faculty and staff involved in the external review process:

  • deans
  • vice/associate/assistant deans
  • chairs
  • associate chairs
  • business officers
  • departmental managers
  • executive assistants, etc.
  • Guiding principles for the reviews — these are outlined in the Cyclical Program Review Protocol (PDF)
  • Phases of the review process
  • Best practices — faculty and staff who have recently gone through an external review process share their insights

Faculty and staff share their expertise on the phases of the review process.

From time to time, the VPAP Office will offer other workshops on matters related to academic change and quality assurance. Information related to all workshop offerings will be posted here in the future.
