GRC Professional : GRC Winter 2012
17 previous reporting, and one nominated by the university in consideration of its overall strategic mission. Teaching and learning audits consider per formance across a range of indicators including student progress and attrition rates, student learning experience (gauged via the ‘Course Experience Questionnaire’ or CEQ), student suppor t ser v ice s, academ ic gover nance, level of teache r accre ditation and profe ssiona l qualification, and gr ade attai n ment. Teaching andlearning officers assist deans, associate deans and academic staff in managing compliance within the parameters of the audit brief. Typical duties will include gathering data to provide evidentiary support for the measurement of KPIs, sourcing and analysing relevant data for reporting under TEQSA or other reporting exercises, and providing ongoing advice in relation to teaching and learning matters including policy and regulatory developments to deans, associate deans and staff. Salaries in these roles tend to be lower than for compliance professionals working in other sectors, but can range from $55,000 to $90,000, depending on grade of appointment. The roles arguably offer some unique attractions, and will appeal to those who wish to develop their skills in an educational environment. Prof Hamilton, however, warns against any perception that these positions are ‘softer’ than other compliance r oles. “ To succeed in these positions, less obvious skills are also important,” she says. “Flexibility, tolerance of ambiguity and even negativity, ability to assist groups and individuals in sharing a vision which may not normally be at the forefront of their immediate goals. Success in academia has always required a high level of com m it ment t o rese arch and publication. The impor tance of teaching and lear ning does not always receive equal recog nition by peers, although it is becoming ever more important in recruitment and promotion. An effective compliance officer will understand this and support academic staff in improving skills and outcomes in this area, in conjunction with senior staff such as associate deans and heads of schools and/ or departments.” ••• The roles arguably offer some unique attractions, and will appeal to those who wish to develop their skills in an educational environment.
