Abstract

This chapter focuses on the critical analysis of evidence of higher education improvement strategies in improving teaching and learning in higher education institutions. Several higher education improvement strategies such as preparation for accreditation and student learning assessment has been utilized in the area of teaching and learning in higher education institutions with diverse outcomes. Overall and despite some recorded successes, there still exist some situations where improvement strategies create challenges and conflicts in the institutions as a result of the improvement strategies not serving their defined purpose. Some of these challenges are ineffective teacher professional development initiatives and lack of specifically developed programs designed for specific students' needs. In order to resolve higher education improvement challenges, decision makers in higher educational institutions must be willing to involve key stakeholders in designing the right approach to quality assurance in higher educational institutions.
