  • Quality in context – embedding improvement

    ljubljana_1_nlThe European Quality Assurance Forum (EQAF) provides a platform for discussion, professional development and exchange of experiences among the main stakeholders in quality assurance (QA). Specifically, the Forum will be of interest to rectors and vice-rectors responsible for QA, QA officers in higher education institutions, students, QA agency staff and researchers working on higher education or the QA field.

    The 11th European Quality Assurance Forum, organised by ENQA, ESU, EUA and EURASHE, will take place on 17-19 November 2016, hosted by the Slovenian Student Union and the University of Ljubljana, in Ljubljana, Slovenia.

    Through a mix of plenary and parallel sessions, the 2016 EQAF, entitled ‘Quality in context – embedding improvement’, will combine practice-oriented or research-based discussions that will take place in the paper sessions and workshops with presentations of current developments in quality assurance. The Forum provides an opportunity for participants to update their knowledge and extend their professional development.

    Forum objectives

    Across Europe there are significant similarities in the ways in which the quality of higher education is assured and enhanced. Nonetheless there is wide-spread agreement that approaches to quality and QA need to be tailored to specific disciplinary, institutional and national contexts and cultures so to allow them to be embedded into daily work and be efficient. The 2016 Forum will explore these different contexts and consider how QA policies and practices are adapted to respect diversity and remain fit for purpose.

    Participants

    EQAF provides a platform for discussion, professional development and exchange of experiences among the main stakeholders in QA. Specifically, the Forum will be of interest to rectors and vice-rectors responsible for QA, QA officers in higher education institutions, students, QA agency staff and researchers working on higher education or the QA field.
