EUA is pleased to announce that the 6th European Quality Assurance Forum (EQAF) will take place at the University of Antwerp and Artesis University College, Belgium, from 17-19 November 2011.
Based on the popularity of this event and feedback received from previous editions, the 2011 Forum, entitled “Quality and trust: at the heart of what we do”, will increase opportunities for exchanging experiences among colleagues, sharing institutional practices, and discovering new QA developments. Through a mix of plenary and parallel sessions, EQAF 2011 will aim to explore the impact and essence of both internal and external QA, and how QA can be further developed to serve these better. More specifically, the Forum plenary sessions will concentrate on reinforcing the idea that improving the quality of provision should remain the essential focus of QA, since it is this that will lead to trust-building among the stakeholders. See 5th European Quality Assurance Forum (EQAF).
The Forum organisers, ENQA, ESU, EUA and EURASHE, have now opened a call for contributions from QA practitioners in higher education institutions and quality assurance agencies, students, institutional leaders and researchers in the field. Two types of contributions are sought: papers and workshops. The deadline to submit contributions is 1 August 2011. For more information, download the call here.
