Victoria College has always been committed to helping students succeed. After three years of research, analysis, and development, Victoria College has outlined a Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) that focuses on enhancing student engagement and student success in their coursework by incorporating active learning components into the classroom to improve students' critical thinking skills.

Operation: SEAL the Deal Cover

This new initiative is called Operation: SEAL the DEAL where SEAL signifies Students Engaged in Active Learning.   

The Game Plan

There will be three distinct components of Operation: SEAL the DEAL designed to foster student success and transform student learning

  • Facilitated through the redesigned PIRATE ORIENTATION,  Basic Training helps incoming students understand their role in the active learning environment as prepared participants and partners in their education. 
  • Boot Camp offers significant professional development opportunities to all VC faculty and staff as an introduction to active learning and learner-centered environments.
  • The SEAL Academy features a year-long program where selected faculty become SEAL Team members and will research best practices and collaborate with instructional designers to transform their courses through meaningful active learning in the classroom.

The QEP is an important component of the reaffirmation of accreditation process designed by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges that reflects on Victoria College's commitment to student learning.
