6th ENQA Training of Experts for Agency Reviews, 10-11 May 2012, Córdoba, Spain (21. Mar. 2012)
The 6th training of experts took place from 10-11 May 2012, Córdoba, Spain. It was organised by ENQA and hosted by the Agencia Andaluza del Conocimiento (AAC). The experience gained over the last years on the use of the ENQA membership criteria in the external reviews of ENQA member agencies, and the parallel use of the European Standards and guidelines (ESG) as the criteria for EQAR listing, emphasised the importance of experts being well prepared for the agency reviews.
Based on the lessons learned, feedback and materials from the already completed reviews, the training session aimed at providing experts with, amongst other things, the necessary knowledge and guidance on the interpretation of the ENQA membership criteria/ESG. Experts who attended the training session will be included in the ENQA pool of trained reviewers. The training was aimed at experts from the ENQA expert pool. It was both for those who had already been involved in national or ENQA coordinated reviews, and for potential future reviewers.
The training was part of ProENQA Project and supported by the Lifelong learning Programme of the European Commission.
