looking in the writing mirror

Over the next two days, the educational body I work for (Adelaide College of Divinity) is being externally audited (by the Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency). For most of this year, we’ve been working on our portfolio, thinking about what we do well, and what we could do better, collecting evidence to demonstrate our practice. The audtors received a folder, about 8 cm thick. Today and tomorrow they visit, interviewing students, past and present, boards, stakeholders, staff. Late tomorrow, they give us verbal feedback. This is then written up and we have the right of reply. Then their findings are made public, including sent to other universities (and I think, even to Parliament!)

It’s a lot of work, but also a chance to look at ourselves in the mirror, and thus to open ourselves to growth.

As part of the process, staff have been asked to provide examples of what they are writing and thinking about. It was fun to look back over the last few (six) years, in the midst of being Senior Pastor and part-time lecturer ….
