Work programme 2015-2018
A reversed peer review on quality assurance in higher education
This reversed peer review on Quality Assurance in Higher Education took place at Ghent University Het Pand.
This event is based on the WG Implementation - Concept note: Reversed peer review.
Quality assurance is a key structural reform in the EHEA as it has been expressed in the recent Yerevan Communiqué. As indicated on the The European Higher Education Area in 2015: Bologna Process Implementation Report quality assurance and its implementation have many different dimensions and are characterized by a large diversity.
The reversed peer review is designed to give an opportunity to all participating countries to:
- Open a dialogue on policy "learning" and share experience on implementation of the Bologna policy and related instruments in specific contexts.
- Employ reversed peer review as a tool to support knowledge transfer.
- Identify best practices to come up with recommendations to tackle specific challenges in implementation.
