Upcoming TAM: Quality Assurance Culture (Georgia)

Tuesday, 27 November, 2018 to Wednesday, 28 November, 2018


Currently, the Georgian higher education system is undergoing quality assurance reforms. New standards are being launched for authorization and accreditation of educational programmes. Georgian universities are facing challenges in this regard and are motivated to enhance the communication and collaboration with the national QA agency and also widen their knowledge in creating a quality assurance culture.


The focus is not only on external quality assurance, but on the development of a quality assurance culture at institutional level. In this context, this seminar, scheduled for 27-28 November 2018, is addressed for academic and administrative staff of universities and the National Accreditation Agency in Georgia. It aims to show:

  • how to integrate European approaches (ESG) for internal quality assurance into universities;
  • how to build successful collaboration beetween the QA agency and HEI;
  • how to develop QA systems at intitutional level and how to engage different stakeholders in this process.


The expert that will join this seminar is Dr. Paul O’Leary, Head of Quality Promotion and Academic Policy Development for the Waterford institute of Technology, Ireland.
