The Teaching Quality Indicators project is a research partnership between eight universities in Ontario to develop a means for post-secondary institutions to examine and, ultimately, enhance the culture of teaching at their institutions. In the first phase of the project we developed faculty and student versions of a survey, the Teaching Culture Perception Survey, based on an extensive review of the relevant literatures to examine the extent to which participants agreed that certain indicators of a quality teaching culture were evident at their institutions and the importance that they placed on these indicators. The surveys were pilot tested with faculty and undergraduate and graduate students at Western University, McMaster University, and the University of Windsor. Focus groups were also conducted to help triangulate and validate the findings of the surveys.Four subsequent phases to the research are planned and funding is being sought to support the continuation of this research project.

The project was funded in part by the Ministry of Training, Colleges, and Universities.
