The European Quality Assurance Forum (EQAF) provides a unique platform for the higher education and quality assurance (QA) communities to monitor, shape and anticipate developments in the field. The main purpose of the Forum is to foster a dialogue on QA that bridges national boundaries and leads to a truly European discussion on QA in higher education, and to create a common European understanding of QA through discussions and networking among different stakeholder groups.
The 10th European Quality Assurance Forum, co-organised by ENQA, ESU, EUA and EURASHE, took place on 19-21 November 2015, hosted by the Quality Assurance Agency / UCL Institute of Education, London, United Kingdom.
Through a mix of plenary and parallel sessions, the 2015 EQAF, entitled “Taking stock and looking forward”, combined presentations of current developments in quality assurance with discussions on research, policy and practice. The Forum provides an opportunity for participants to update their knowledge and extend their professional development.
Full papers and presentations, as well as video recordings of the plenary sessions from EQAF 2015 can be found here.
2015 marks not only the 10th anniversary of EQAF, but also 10 years since the introduction of the ESG and five years since the formal launch of the European Higher Education Area (EHEA). With the recent adoption of the revised ESG, this year presents an ideal moment to take stock of the status of European QA policies and assess their impact on all stakeholders. The Forum will examine QA in the EHEA from a variety of perspectives and explore the ways in which concrete practices in institutions and agencies reflect European level policies.
The European Quality Assurance Forum provides a platform for discussion, professional development and exchange of experiences among the main stakeholders in quality assurance (QA). Specifically, the Forum will be of interest to rectors and vice-rectors responsible for QA, QA officers in higher education institutions, students, QA agency staff and researchers working on higher education or the QA field.
