Training on Internal Quality Assurance, Sapienza University of Rome, 11-12 June 2015
A 2-day training was held in Sapienza Rectorate building on 11 and 12 June 2014 on how Internal Quality Assurance was managed.
The participants were exposed to the experience and procedures of Sapienza University in its internal quality and evaluation system through different aspects: study programmes, data analysis, management and transparency as well as through the exemple of one specific faculty and the international relations office. The italian national framework fro QA (AVA) developed by the italian Quality Assurance Agency – ANVUR – was also presented and how an AVA institutional visit was prepared and undertaken by Perugia University, which is not member of the EQuAM consortium. This gave an external approach and vision which enriched the debate and the following exchanges. Finally, Prof. Cristiano Violani (AVA Expert at Sapienza University), explained the site visits from the expert’s peer perspective. Ms. Anna Gover from the European University Association also attended this event and gave two presentations. The first one was on the new ESG and simplified QA criteria for joint programme, and the second one was related to a project led by the EUA on quality assurance in the Balkans. It brought the audience the possibility to explore the QA experience in this region and see the shared commonalities and differences in the implementation of such processes.
