Training: Assessing Joint Programmes for universities, experts & agencies

We are pleased to invite you to ECA Training “Assessing Joint Programmes” which will take place on 27 and 28 June in Cologne– Germany (AQAS, Hohenstaufenring 30–32 50674 Köln).

Joint programmes require specific attention when being assessed. This means that these assessments consider the specificities of joint programmes: responsibilities within consortia, coordination of teaching and learning, grade conversion across borders, overall learning outcomes across (umpteen) locations, etc. National approaches to assess joint programmes as well as the legal requirements can vary a lot.

With the growing number of Joint programmes also under the European Universities Initiative the European Approach for Quality Assurance of Joint Programmes is a suitable approach to external quality assurance for these programmes. It is also based on the experiences of ECA with accrediting joint programmes (JOQAR project) and supported by the IMPEA project in which ECA was a key partner. The training will focus on the European Approach whilst also paying attention to national systems that constitute the context in which QA decisions take place and are the modus operandi for the HEIs providing a joint programme.

Participation in this training costs 450 euro. The fee for ECA members (i.e. staff from QA agencies that are members of ECA) is 350 euro. The training fee covers the costs of the training and venue, dinner on 27 June and light lunches on 27 and 28 June. The fee does not cover any travel costs or accommodation.
