The European Quality Assurance Forum (EQAF) provides a platform for discussion, professional development and exchange of experiences among the main stakeholders in quality assurance. The 15th edition of EQAF explored if QA is fit for this dynamic and flexible environment and how it could better support higher education institutions in this transition and encourage them make the most of it. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the 2020 European Quality Assurance Forum was organised in the form of online sessions.
The 2020 EQAF online event, entitled “Flexible higher education: implications for QA”, combined online sessions about European policies and trends, research, and practical case examples related to the Forum theme and more generally about current developments in quality assurance.
NAQA Vice-Head Nataliia Stukalo was selected to present the study “Extending the role of QA Agencies in response to pandemic challenges” (video presentation) based on NAQA case study. During the EQAF a fruitful discussion took place.
