ENQA will organise a conference on QA of cross-border higher education on 5-6 November 2015 in Paris, France, hosted by ENQA’s member agency the High Council for the Evaluation of Research and Higher Education (HCERES).

 

The event targets quality assurance and higher education professionals from Europe and other regions and will discuss the most current issues on the rapidly expanding phenomenon of cross-border higher education and its quality assurance.

The proposal for the revised version of the “Standards and Guidelines for Quality Assurance in the European Higher Education Area” (ESG) was discussed at the Bologna Follow-up Group (BFUG) meeting on 9-10 April in Athens, Greece. Following discussions at the meeting, the ESG Steering Group was asked to produce written proposals on how the suggested changes might be integrated into the revised ESG and to carry out a survey targeting the BFUG members to gain an understanding of the level of consensus on the proposed changes. This survey has now been completed and the outcome was discussed by the ESG Steering Group at a meeting in Brussels on 25 June. The revised draft will be submitted to the BFUG Secretariat for discussion at the next BFUG meeting in Rome on 18-19 September. We remain hopeful that the Ministers responsible for higher education will adopt the revised ESG at the Bologna Ministerial conference in Yerevan, Armenia in 2015.

ENQA review: QAA takes its own medicine

 

QAA has confirmed that, in spring 2013, it is to undergo an external review by an international team appointed by the European Association for Quality Assurance in Higher Education (ENQA).

ENQA promotes European co-operation in the field of quality assurance in higher education.  QAA was a founding member of ENQA and QAA staff member, Fiona Crozier, is currently Vice President.  Member agencies are required to undergo a review once every five years, with QAA last reviewed in 2008.

Early in 2013, QAA will submit a self-evaluation report to ENQA. A review team of experts will visit QAA's offices in late spring 2013.  A findings report will be produced by ENQA and published in the autumn of 2013. 

To inform the preparation of the self-evaluation report, QAA has held a number of workshops and meetings with QAA staff, QAA Board, QAA Student Advisory Board, QAA Sounding Board and other stakeholders, during October and November.

For more information about ENQA and to view the 2008 report on QAA, visit www.enqa.eu.

The corridor of uncertainty: Integrating the e- into learning - EFQUEL Innovation Forum 2013

The corridor of uncertainty: Integrating the e- into learning - EFQUEL Innovation Forum 2013 | Quality assurance of eLearning | Scoop.it

We are at last moving from a divided view of quality in education (traditional/e-learning) to a single concept of learning and teaching. Representatives of the major European higher education organisations ENQA, EUA, EURASHE and ESUwere all active contributors and ready to start a common discussion about how the area of e-learning quality can be integrated into traditional quality assurance criteria for higher education. This feels like a major breakthrough and hopefully specialist e-learning quality organisations will be able to contribute actively to the development of mainstream quality assurance in higher education.
