Post-Employment Faculty Quality Assurance System (FQAS) Expectations

The College has a process in place to ensure faculty teaching credit coursework, full-time and part-time, meet the minimum requirements of the Faculty Quality Assurance System (FQAS). The FQAS process at WITC begins shortly after the instructor is hired. The instructor will be sent forms from the Human Resources (HR) Department requesting permission for the College to obtain official transcripts and verify previous work experience as required by the Wisconsin Technical College System (WTCS). This process is used to ensure that faculty have the appropriate education and prior work experience to support the course(s) he/she is assigned to teach.

Under FQAS, faculty teaching credit coursework are required to complete FQAS competencies in the following content areas (full-time within three years of the date of employment and part-time within five years of the date of employment):

Transcripts received are reviewed for learning acquired that meets FQAS requirements. In addition, faculty are given credit for prior completion of FQAS requirements at other WTCS Colleges. Individuals may also develop a portfolio to document learning acquired through training or work experience pertinent to FQAS requirements.

Opportunities to complete FQAS requirements are offered each semester through the Wisconsin Technical College System (WTCS) and WITC and information is provided via email when opportunities are scheduled. Please talk to your Supervisor about development opportunities that may be appropriate.
