The call for contributions is now open for the 12th European Quality Assurance Forum (EQAF), which will be hosted in Riga by the University of Latvia from 23 to 25 November 2017.
Organised by EUA, ENQA, ESU and EURASHE, the event “Responsible QA – committing to impact” 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 QA.
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 QA. The Forum organisers are therefore seeking proposals for papers and workshops from QA 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. Those selected will also receive one fee reduction per contribution to attend the Forum.
For more information about the call and the Forum itself, please consult the event webpage. The deadline to submit contributions is 24 July 2017. The full programme and registration information will be available this summer.
For any questions, please contact QAForum@eua.be.
