ENQA online General Assembly Seminar: Trends and innovations: what’s new in the ENQA family?

22 October 2021 10:00-11:30

In this webinar, participants heard a range of short inputs from selected ENQA members and affiliates about new developments in their agencies or systems. These focused on significant changes in approaches to external quality assurance or innovations in specific aspects of their work. The webinar enabled participants to keep up to date with developments from across the ENQA membership and discuss common lessons that could be shared between agencies.
