Welcome to TU Dublin's Our Student Voice toolkit for enhancing the student voice in Quality Assurance and Quality Enhancement Activities.
The TU Dublin Quality Framework is founded on a Student-Centred Approach that is purposely designed to assure the quality of the total student experience. This vision requires implementation of good practice in all aspects of student learning and fostering and supporting a student-centred learning environment. Therefore, building a partnership between staff and students is of great importance. Such a partnership requires effective student input through the academic Quality Assurance and Quality Enhancement processes and procedures. For this reason, Our Student Voice provides training and guidance for students to enable their effective engagement in this partnership.
