The project IQAT, supported within Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union is focused on enhancing capacities in implementation of Bologna process reforms at institutional level at higher education institutions in two partner countries of the Central Asian regions
– Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan, with the emphasis on the improvement of internal quality assurance through institutional typologies.
THE SPECIFIC PROJECT OBJECTIVES COVER
Mapping of current situation of quality assurance at both levels – individual partner higher education institutions as well as national level
Iidentification of the principles/recommendations of the Bologna process relevant for higher education institutions in partner countries
Interactive training sessions
Transfer transfer of know-how and good practices
Sharing experience between European higher education institutions and higher education institutions in partner countries
and stressing the new Bologna process priorities set for its second decade
(social issues, information systems
For investigation of the state of the art of internal structure and missions of each HEI the
U-Map methodology is used. In order to assure the implementation of well-developed internal quality assurance systems three levels of evaluations are being applied: self-evaluation of partner higher education institutions, evaluation of experts from European higher education institutions participating in the project and external evaluation done
by National Quality Agencies of partner countries.
The expected outputs of the IQAT project include fully trained management staff and implementation of newly developed and/or innovated internal quality assurance systems
at HEIs in partner countries.
