Implementing and Using Quality Assurance: Strategy and Practice

Hosted by Sapienza Università di Roma

15-17 November 2007

Rettorato MinervaThe second European Quality Assurance Forum 2007 explored how to implement external and internal quality assurance processes and how to use the outcomes. The focus was on perspectives and frameworks for action and the exchange of examples of how to undertake evaluations. The European Standards and Guidelines were examined as a guide to helping the implementation process, especially in the light of the London meeting of ministers in May 2007.

Following the success of the first European Quality Assurance Forum that was organised in 2006 at the Technical University of Munich, this second Forum, funded by the Socrates Programme and co-organised by ENQA, ESIB, EUA and EURASHE, explored progress to date in implementing the standards and guidelines in higher education institutions and quality assurance agencies and aimed at developing a common understanding of ways to develop further a European dimension for quality assurance.

The specific objectives of this second forum were:

  • To gain an understanding of how to implement the European Standards and Guidelines
  • To analyse the success factors and obstacles
  • To grasp the implications of such an implementation and examine the impact and the unintended consequences
  • To discuss specific tools (such as student evaluations, implementing learning outcomes, reviews of QA agencies)
  • To explore the principles underlying some of the European Standards and Guidelines and some of the tools

Participants

The Forum were of interest to rectors and vice-rectors responsible for QA, QA officers in higher education institutions, students, QA agency staff, Bologna Promoters and researchers working on higher education or the QA field.
