Researcher profile for Marie Terpstra

Research Outputs

Marie Terpstra

In my role as Director: Academic Excellence, I lead a small team responsible for programme approval and accreditation and supporting quality assurance processes across the polytechnic. We liaise closely with NZQA and with colleagues across the Te Pūkenga network. Along with our Learning and Teaching Development team we support best practice approaches to programme design and development.

Recently I took on the role of Te Kaihāpai, which involves supporting the resolution of learner complaints and appeals.

Previously, I held leadership positions in the School of Design and Food Design Institute, with programmes ranging from unit-standards based certificates to Master degrees. This role involved people management, budgeting and resourcing, recruitment and selection and curriculum development. I have sat on various iterations of Programme Approvals Committee since 2008 and represented Otago Polytechnic on a number of NZQA accreditation panels. I currently chair Academic Committee and am on several Te Pūkenga working groups.
