Good practices workshop

The workshop intended to present some of the practices that have been highlighted to be good or exemplary during CeQuInt’s pilot procedures. Participants were the representatives of the institutions and the programmes that took part in the pilot procedures, the expert panel members and the coordinators of the assessment procedures from the quality assurance agencies. They were all invited to discuss what it takes to make a practice good or exemplary. They discussed the characteristics of a good practice and presented how such practices can be further developed.
