ASIIN and meanwhile 15 national and international organizations are organizing a state of the art international conference entitled: “Quality Management in Higher Education: the unsolved mystery of its untapped potential – how can we jointly tackle the five remaining grand challenges?” in the Hotel Steigenberger am Kanzleramt in Berlin during 3-4 May 2016.
The event will gather a unique and high profile crowd of speakers representing the Quality Assurance and Professional bodies all across the world, the European and international HE establishment, employer associations, unions and student bodies, recognition authorities, members of politics and the media etc. Jointly, the participants, will discuss and analyze the unique opportunities that a structured approach to Quality Management and Accreditation can have for global educational, political and socio-economic modernization processes as well as recognition and mobility issues which for a (too) long time have not been put on the table.
Five “grand challenges” have accordingly been identified and will structure the programme. The last part of the conference will focus on evolving instruments of QA, including the topics of achieved learning outcomes after AHELO, accreditation and its impact on the ranking discussion, new benchmarking initiatives and the like. An interesting social programme in the exciting capital of Germany will be another highlight.
You are cordially invited to register for this event under http://www.asiin-ev.de/pages/en/asiin-e.-v/news-and-events/events/asiin-international-conference-2016.php. It is recommended to register early in advance and also book hotel space as this is a busy month for events in Berlin!
