We are pleased to inform you that the UNESCO International Institute for Educational Planning (IIEP) is offering an online course on “Internal Quality Assurance for universities in Arab countries: Designing and developing an effective IQA system”, which will be delivered from 30 April to 29 June 2018. This course is jointly organized with the UNESCO Beirut Office.
This online course aims to strengthen the capacity of officials in charge of quality management in their higher education institutions by familiarizing them with innovative options and good practices in IQA. Participants will learn how to develop IQA as an integrated system in support of quality, employability, and a quality culture.
The course was specially designed to meet the training needs of vice-rectors for teaching and learning, quality managers, and their team members, at central university and faculty levels. Its instructional design is geared to institutional development, and the course is therefore meant forteams of three to five participants (including a team coordinator) working together in a university.
The participation of women is strongly encouraged.
The course structure includes individual work, group assignments, and interaction with international specialists in the field of IQA in higher education. The training will be primarily conducted in distance mode and be complemented by face-to-face group sessions organized by the team coordinator. This coordinator will be a member of the team designated by the participating university and s/he will organize the group work. S/he will preferably have a leading position in the area of academic quality.
You are invited to submit an application for a team of three to five participants who will work together during the course.
