EQ-Arts was selected to present a thematic session during the 14th ELIA Biennial Conference Turn Mirrors into Windows in Florence. The session Taking Ownership of Quality Assurance will be held on Friday 2 December from 16.00-17.00 and is open to all delegates.
Quality assurance and the enhancement of the student learning experience are key concerns for the higher education sector across Europe and beyond.
The implementation and development of Quality Assurance systems and processes often take insufficient account of the specific contexts (regional, national, subject disciplines, etc.) in which higher education is delivered.
Higher Education institutions need to take full ownership of their quality assurance and enhancement processes to ensure that they are truly fit-for-purpose and are fully transparent to both staff and students, and are in tune with both institutional mission and their unique social and cultural contexts.
