The quality of higher education is ensured in relatively similar ways across Europe. Nonetheless, to safeguard efficient quality assurance(QA), there is widespread consensus that approaches to QA need to be tailored to disciplinary, institutional and national contexts and cultures.
The 11th European Quality Assurance Forum (EQAF), taking place in Ljubljana, Slovenia from 17 to 19 November 2016 will explore these different contexts and consider how quality assurance policies and practices are adapted to respect diversity and remain fit for purpose.
The Forum organisers, ENQA, ESU, EUA and EURASHE, are seeking proposals for papers and workshops from quality assurance (QA) practitioners in higher education institutions and QA agencies, students, and researchers in the field.
A selection of papers presented at the Forum will also be published in a special edition of the Journal of the European Higher Education Area, to be produced after EQAF.
The deadline to submit contributions is 25 July 2016. For more information, please consult the call documents on the EQAF website.
The 2016 EQAF, entitled “Quality in context – embedding improvement”, will be hosted by the Slovenian Student Union and the University of Ljubljana. Through a mix of plenary and parallel sessions, the Forum will combine presentations of current developments in QA with practice-oriented and research-based discussions that will take place in paper sessions and workshops.
