Between Collaboration and Competition: The Promises and Challenges for Quality Assurance in Higher Education, INQAAHE conference 2017

Reunió del Board INQAAHE Meeting of the INQAAHE Board

From 27 February to 2 March, the 14th biennial conference of the International Network for Quality Assurance Agencies in Higher Education (INQAAHE) is being held in Bahrain. For this year’s event, the host agency is the Education & Training Quality Authority (BQA) and the theme of the conference bringing together the members of the network of international agencies is “Between Collaboration and Competition: The Promises and Challenges for Quality Assurance in Higher Education”.

The conference will offer the perfect platform in order to share knowledge, exchange experience and strengthen cooperation among the various quality assurance agencies, education providers and employers on the prevailing issues in higher education regionally and globally.

The working groups have been organised around four sub-themes:

  • Quality assurance for competitive advantage in the markets for national and international students.
  • Quality assurance breaking down barriers for students and providers.
  • Are we closer to a global QA and qualifications framework?
  • The Quality Assurance agenda for the next 25 years.

AQU Catalunya has been a member of the INQAAHE since 1998. Its role as Secretariat of the network, which it has hosted since October 2013, has been extended until 30 June 2018.
