Registrations now open for the 7th European Quality Assurance Forum, Tallinn, Estonia (22-24 November 2012)
July 05, 2012
Registrations are now open for the 7th European Quality Assurance Forum (EQAF), entitled ‘How does quality assurance make a difference?’, which will take place from 22 to 24 November 2012 at Tallinn University in Estonia.
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.
Through a mix of plenary and parallel sessions, the 2012 EQAF will combine practice-oriented or research-based discussions that will take place in the paper sessions and workshops with presentations of current developments in QA.
This year, the event will specifically explore the impact of external and internal QA on higher education policies and institutional realities. In this context, the sessions will aim to address issues such as external evaluation and institutional follow-up; the relationship between QA, pedagogical approaches and student learning; QA supporting institutional aims and profiles; QA supporting informed decision-making and the role of QA in globalised higher education.
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 in higher education or the QA field.
The European Quality Assurance Forum is co-organised by the European Association for Quality Assurance in Higher Education (ENQA), the European Students’ Union (ESU), EUA and the European Association of Institutions in Higher Education (EURASHE).

A call for contributions is also open until 31 July 2012.
