EQAF 2018 - 13rd European Quality Assurance Forum - Broadening the scope of QA

Date :  du 15-11-2018 au 17-09-2018

Lieu :  Vienne

Organisation :  European University Association (EUA)

co-organisé avec ENQA, ESU et EURASHE.

Programme : 

As a tool for supporting the quality of higher education, quality assurance (QA) has in many European higher education systems focused largely on learning and teaching. However, as underlined in the introduction to the Standards and guidelines for quality assurance in the EHEA (ESG), higher education institutions should have QA policies and processes that cover other institutional activities, and in parallel, external QA is increasingly looking into these policies.

This edition of EQAF will explore how institutions and QA agencies can build QA systems that encompass a broad range of activities, including learning and teaching, research, governance and administration, and service to society.

Through a mix of plenary and parallel sessions, the 2018 EQAF, entitled ‘Broadening the scope of QA’, will combine presentations of current developments in QA with discussions on research, policy and practice that will take place in paper sessions and workshops.

Official Opening
 Introduction to the Forum, Caty Duykaerts, Chair, EQAF Programme Committee

Plenary Session I: Putting the system in QA

This session will explore what the concept of a ‘system’ means for QA, reflecting on the research on this topic and considering what this means for both internal and external QA frameworks.
• James Williams, Quality in Higher Education

Plenary Session II: Different activities – different systems

How can quality assurance agencies and institutions adopt an approach to their quality assurance that takes into account the range of institutional activities? This panel discussion will explore the experiences of agencies and institutions in two systems that take different approaches to this question.
