Creativity and Diversity: Challenges for quality assurance beyond 2010

copenhagen_1The theme of the 2009 Forum was ‘Creativity and Diversity: Challenges for quality assurance beyond 2010’. The main goal of this event was to provide a discussion forum centred on how current internal and external quality assurance approaches take account of institutional diversity and support creativity and innovative practices in higher education. Through plenary and parallel sessions, the discussion framed these issues in the context of the ongoing construction of the European Higher Education Area.

Following the success of the previous European Quality Assurance Forums, the 4th forum, co-organised by ENQA, ESU, EUA and EURASHE and supported by the Lifelong Learning Programme of the European Commission, was hosted by Copenhagen Business School (Denmark) on 19-21 November 2009.

The final publication of this year’s EQAF is available here.

Following are the practicalities of the event:
