ENQA working group and projects to be presented at EQAF

29 September 2017

Early bird registration is open until 9 October 2017 for the 12th European Quality Assurance Forum (EQAF), which will take place on 23-25 November 2017 in Riga, hosted by the University of Latvia. After this date, late registration fees will apply; however, capacity is limited, and registrations will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. The recently updated programme indicates that several Forum sessions are dedicated to projects or initiatives in which ENQA is involved.

Outcomes from research conducted by the ENQA working group on quality assurance and recognition will be presented by the working group chair, Teresa Sánchez Chaparro, in a breakout session entitled “Current practices on external quality assurance of academic recognition among QA agencies”. ENQA is also represented through the paper presentation concerning the external evaluation of e-assessment, a paper based on the “Adaptive Trust-based e-assessment System for Learning” (TeSLA) project, in which ENQA is a partner. One of the workshops will present the European Toolkit for Internal Quality Management in Competence-Based Higher Education, as developed in the project “Internal Quality Management: Evaluating and Improving Competence-Based Higher Education” (IQM-HE), in which ENQA is a partner.

One of the parallel plenary sessions will approach global perspectives on regional cooperation in QA by sharing experiences from Africa and the ASEAN region. The African perspective will be disseminated by introducing the African Standards and Guidelines for Quality Assurance (ASG-QA), as prepared under the coordination of ENQA in the HAQAA Initiative. Developments in the harmonisation of quality assurance in the ASEAN region will be introduced through the lens of the SHARE project, in which ENQA is also a partner.
