The 9th European Quality Assurance Forum (EQAF) will take place on 13-15 November 2014 in Barcelona (Spain) at the University of Barcelona. ENQA, ESU, EUA and EURASHE, the co-organisers, have now issued a call for contributions.
This year’s edition will also include a plenary session on the results of HAPHE (Harmonising Approaches to Professional Higher Education in Europe) and first outcomes of PHExcel (Testing the Feasibility of a Quality Label for PHE Excellence). Both projects are coordinated by EURASHE.
EURASHE members and professional higher education institutions are encouraged to contribute to the 9th EQAF.
Through a mix of plenary and parallel sessions, the 2014 EQAF, entitled ‘Changing education – QA and the shift from teaching to learning‘, 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. This year, the Forum will explore whether and how current QA approaches are keeping up with and supporting developments in learning and teaching.
The Forum organisers, ENQA, ESU, EUA and EURASHE, have now opened a call for contributions from QA practitioners in higher education institutions and quality assurance agencies, students, academic staff, institutional leaders and researchers in the field. Two types of contributions are sought: papers and workshops. The deadline to submit contributions is 25 July 2014.
