Quality Assurance Professionals Workshop

30 November 2018 | Chengdu, China

This seminar will be delivered in Mandarin with the written materials in English.  

Higher education is transforming at a rapid pace. Globally, there are more degree-granting institutions than ever before, and they are expected to demonstrate their relevancy and impact on a local, regional, national, and an international scale with stakeholders, including accreditors and governments.

These higher education institutions, some striving for or maintaining multiple accreditations, must develop plans and processes to research, prepare, and maintain certain stakeholder-required reports and be ready to shine when an on-campus visit is approaching. As a result, many forward-thinking institutions and universities view this as an opportunity to create new roles dedicated to the oversight and management of quality assurance (QA). These roles vary a lot from one institution to the other and many filling those positions are breaking new ground in these developing roles and are ready to take the next step. 

This workshop is designed to meet the needs of QA Professionals. During this workshop a couple of different institutional structures will be presented and discussed so that you get a sense of how your role and institution maps on to what best practice might look like. The workshop offers a forum to discuss the collective process where staff, faculty, students, and administrators must work together not only to accomplish a university’s mission and work toward its vision, but also to efficiently communicate its story for accreditation purposes. 

You will examine the competencies required for general quality assurance requirements, regardless of home institution, accrediting body and/or government/NGO. In addition, you will learn evidence-based process management techniques, review quality assurance documents, discuss cases, receive best-practice insights from experienced speakers and peers, and exchange and network with others in your profession. 

 

本工作坊的工作语言是中文,所有书面文档将以英文提供。  

AACSB认证旨在促进已认证或正在申请认证的商学院或管理学院持续不断地提高管理教育的质量。各学院应通过建立质量管理体系以及聘用和培养质量保证专业人士,以推动、保证和加速质量提升,从而实现变革创新、广泛参与和产生影响。
