  • Taking stock and looking forward

    london_1Through a mix of plenary and parallel sessions, the 2015 EQAF, entitled ‘Taking stock and looking forward’, will combine presentations of current developments in quality assurance with discussions on research, policy and practice that will take place in paper sessions and workshops.

    2015 marks not only the 10th anniversary of EQAF, but also 10 years since the introduction of the ESG and five years since the formal launch of the European Higher Education Area (EHEA). With the recent adoption of the revised ESG, this year presents an ideal moment to take stock of the status of European QA policies and assess their impact on all stakeholders. The Forum will examine QA in the EHEA from a variety of perspectives and explore the ways in which concrete practices in institutions and agencies reflect European level policies.

    Contributions

    The Forum organisers invite contributions from QA practitioners in higher education institutions and quality assurance agencies, students, and researchers in the field.

    The Forum organisers, ENQA, ESU, EUA and EURASHE, have opened a call for contributions (here) from QA practitioners in higher education institutions and quality assurance agencies, students, institutional leaders and researchers in the field. Two types of contributions are sought: papers (here) and workshops (here). EQAF is an excellent opportunity to present current practice or research and test new ideas, and to elicit feedback from colleagues and stakeholders. All contributions are expected to seek to stimulate a discussion with the participants, thus enhancing peer-learning. The deadline to submit contributions is 3 August 2015.

    EURASHE members are encouraged to contribute to the 10th edition of EQAF.
