    tallinn_1Through a mix of plenary and parallel sessions, the 2012 EQAF, entitled ‘How does quality assurance make a difference?’, combined practice-oriented or research-based discussions with presentations of current developments in quality assurance (QA). This year, the Forum specifically explored the impact of external and internal QA on higher education policies and institutional realities.
