Testing times in higher education


Sir, – I want to thank Dr Greg Foley (Letters, August 7th) for his list of review processes at DCU. It should be required reading for anyone considering adding to the list.

In my 30-year university teaching career, my experience is that such lists continue to grow because university and government leaders are unwilling to face up to the causes of problems in quality. However, something must be seen to be done, so another unnecessary review process is introduced. – Yours, etc,
