QEPAs part of UAB’s 2015 reaffirmation of accreditation by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC), the institution is required to submit a Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) that is designed to improve an aspect of student learning and, therefore, enhance the quality of education at UAB. An acceptable QEP must:
- Address a specific topic
- Be developed and supported by the campus community
- Have defined goals
- Be evaluated for its effectiveness
Focusing on building team skills within the classroom offers opportunities for greater retention of materials by students, increased student participation in classroom activities, improved student performance along standard academic achievement measures, and achievement of our prescribed student learning outcomes.
