12th EQAF: Responsible Quality Assurance – committing to impact

March 16, 2017

The 12th European Quality Assurance Forum (EQAF) will take place in Riga, Latvia on 23-25 November 2017 hosted by the University of Latvia. The Forum organisers, ESU, ENQA, EUA and EURASHE, are pleased to invite you to get involved in the Forum by proposing a paper or workshop.

Under the title of ‘Responsible Quality Assurance – committing to impact’, this year’s Forum will focus on the need for quality assurance (QA), whether aiming at accountability or enhancement, to be carried out in a transparent and responsible manner. This means finding ways of responding to the needs and interests of internal and external stakeholders. EQAF 2017 will explore how this can be done in practice, examining issues such as communication, ethics and the concept of change in Quality Assurance.

During the Forum, paper sessions and workshops will provide space for more detailed discussions about research, policy initiatives and practical case examples related to current developments in Quality Assurance. The Forum organisers are therefore seeking proposals for papers and workshops from Quality Assurance practitioners in higher education institutions and quality assurance agencies, students, and researchers in the field.

These sessions are an excellent opportunity to share experiences and gain fresh perspectives from colleagues from across Europe. Selected contributions will also receive one reduced fee for attending the Forum.

For more information about the call, please consult the EQAF website. The deadline to submit contributions is 24 July 2017.

Further information about the Forum, including the programme and registration information will become available in summer 2017.
