Participation in the INQAAHE/ENQA Seminar

30 Nov 2011 - 02 Dec 2011

Professor Yiu-Kwan Fan, Executive Director of the HKCAAVQ, participated in an international seminar jointly organised by the International Network for Quality Assurance Agencies in Higher Education (INQAAHE) and the European Association for Quality Assurance in Higher Education (ENQA) in Brussels, Belgium, from 30 November to 2 December.

The joint seminar entitled “Internationalisation and Quality Assurance: Connecting European and Global Experiences” paid tribute to the late Dr Marjorie Peace Lenn, one of the founders of INQAAHE and a member of the inaugural Council of the HKCAA. The event brought together QA experts from all over the world to explore the themes of global interest, such as the recent trends in internationalisation and QA of higher education, mutual recognition initiatives used in different regions, and the role, methodology and impact of quality labels in Europe.

In the seminar, Prof Fan shared with participants the HKCAAVQ’s non-local programme accreditation model and its guiding principles. Making reference to the HKCAAVQ’s non-local programme accreditation exercises in the Art and Design discipline in 2010, Prof Fan introduced to the participants the quality indicators under respective accreditation criteria, and shared our experience and observations in carrying out QA of transnational higher education in Hong Kong.
