A year after the Covid-19 pandemic hit Europe, many quality assurance agencies have gathered significant experience of moving their external quality assurance activities online. On Wednesday 21 April from 10-11:30 CEST, ENQA organised a webinar in which agencies can share the lessons learnt from the past year. The webinar took place as part of this year’s online Members’ Forum and replaced the poster sessions that are regularly held as part of the physical events.
This webinar was open exclusively to ENQA members and affiliates.
Those interested in online quality assurance can also take a look at ENQA’s previous webinar held in June 2020 on online site visits and external quality assurance in times of COVID-19.
The webinar featured short inputs from six ENQA members, covering a range of aspects related to conducting external quality assurance in an online format.
