EQUIP focus groups attempt to address implementation challenges with the ESG 2015

28 March 2017

In the framework of the “Enhancing Quality through Innovative Policy and Practice” (EQUIP) project, in which ENQA is a partner, a series of focus groups are being organised. The focus groups will verify and further consolidate the evidence collected through previous project activities about implementation challenges with the ESG 2015 and aim to share good practice and discuss the proposed approaches to solving these challenges and their applicability in different contexts. Each of the focus groups addresses six different stakeholder groups: 1) universities, 2) universities of applied sciences and university colleges (professional higher education), 3) academics, 4) QA agencies, 5) students, and 6) ministries. Three of the focus groups have taken place already – for students, universities, and academics – and have provided insight for those remaining.

ENQA is in charge of organising the focus group addressed to QA agencies. The ENQA focus group will take place in conjunction with the Members’ Forum, on 3-4 May 2017 in Oslo, Norway. It will focus on current issues in quality assurance and the concepts of quality, impact, and innovative solutions related to the ESG 2015. Participation is limited to 20 individuals representing QA agencies who have extensive experience working with the ESG 2015. Individuals who are interested in attending the free event are requested to kindly contact Anaïs Gourdin at the ENQA Secretariat.
