Program review is a systematic, constructive, research-based examination of a program’s quality.
This process contributes to a culture of self-reflection, evidence-based inquiry, and striving to improve learning for students. Program review fosters a sense of a program’s uniqueness, cultivates a broad dialogue on of teaching and learning, and results in an action plan to ensure programs remain current with developments and advancements in their fields. Additionally, program review is a provincially mandated activity of post-secondary education credentialed programs.
COLT supports programs through the review process. Programs are meant to be reviewed every 5-7 years and Coast Mountain College has a program review policy and procedures. Part of the support comes in the form of a program review handbook and templates for program review. Keep reading for useful links and resources.
