This proposal is designed to provide a comprehensive overview of benchmarking pactices as they relate to teaching and learning. In many countries, such as UK and Australia, benchmarking is quite well established and quality assurance audits and assessments rely quite heavily on such data. To date, benchmarking in the Hong Kong tertiary sector has been somewhat limited (e.g. Performance-related Funding) but with the advent of periodic quality "audits" of teaching and learning by the proposed UGC Quality Assurance Council, it will be important for the Institute to be able to identify benchmarking for teaching and learning that best fit its purpose. It will be important in any review of such literature to identify input (e.g. resources, students), structures (e.g. organizational frameworks), processes (which convert resources and students into quality teachers) and outputs (e.g. employment rates, principal ratings of graduates).
