Managing your institution's quality with the latest practices and policies
EURASHE will organise a seminar on quality assurance (QA) titled ‘Managing your institution’s quality with the latest practices and policies‘ in Brussels (Belgium) on 6-7 February 2017. It is jointly organised by EURASHE and the Académie de Recherche et d’Enseignement Supérieur (ARES).
Managing your institution’s quality with the latest practices and policies
In many countries institutions are gaining more autonomy in every aspect of their activities. A growing autonomy calls for more accountability, not only towards students but also towards society. The need for support in implementing quality assurance is therefore as present as ever.
Quality assurance may have advanced in recent years, with the adoption of the Standards and Guidelines for Quality Assurance in the European Higher Education Area (ESG), the development of sectorial initiatives or the rise of rankings, labels and the topic of excellence, but institutions are still facing the challenge of quality assurance in a changing context and evolving society.
EURASHE has focused in the past on providing hands-on support to its member institutions and other higher education institutions in implementing the priority areas of the Bologna reform process, including in the area of quality assurance and quality management.
This 2-half-days seminar is intended to inspire institutional management, as well as staff members, and all stakeholders who are managing, coordinating and involved in quality in higher education institutions. Organizers aim to bring together a ‘community of practice’ of quality managers and quality officers, as well as vice-rectors/vice-presidents for quality.
EURASHE’s mission is to promote, within the European Higher Education Area (EHEA), the interests of professional higher education and of relevant higher education institutions that are recognised or financed by the public authorities of a EHEA member country, either in binary higher education systems or in unitary ‘university’ systems.
EURASHE is a consultative member of the Bologna Follow-Up Group.
