HERE Seminar European Standards and Guidelines for Quality Assurance (ESG) in practice: Implications for HEIs and higher education systems

Dates: 
Wednesday, 19 October, 2016 to Thursday, 20 October, 2016

19-20 October 2016, Lviv, Ukraine

The Standards and Guidelines for Quality Assurance in the European Higher Education Area (ESG) are the basis for quality assurance in the European Higher Education Area (EHEA). In Yerevan in 2015, Bologna ministers endorsed a revised version of the ESG (ESG 2015), which includes a number of updated and amended elements to which stakeholders will need to adapt in the near future. This includes a stronger focus on the role of institutions in taking charge of quality assurance.

This HERE seminar aims at generating awareness for the ESG 2015 amongst HERE. It intends to support HERE to promote QA reform in their countries, and embed ‘quality culture’ at grass-root level – the level of HEIs – as well as in cooperation with governments, QA agencies and all pertinent stakeholders.
