The EQAF is an annual event co-organised by ENQA, ESU, EUA and EURASHE. It is the main European conference on quality assurance in higher education, which brings together all key stakeholders in this field, such as higher education institutions, quality assurance agencies and students. The final programme is now available here.
Through a mix of plenary and parallel sessions, the 2012 EQAF, entitled ‘How does quality assurance make a difference?‘, will combine practice-oriented or research-based discussions with presentations of current developments in quality assurance (QA).
This year, the Forum will specifically explore the impact of external and internal QA on higher education policies and institutional realities. In this context, the sessions will aim to address issues such as external evaluation and institutional follow-up; the relationship between QA, pedagogical approaches and student learning; QA supporting institutional aims and profiles; QA supporting informed decision-making; and the role of QA in globalised higher education.
