In a bid to build on its current quality assurance initiatives and experience, the AAU-AfriQAN is mounting a Good Practices Workshop Series to enlighten the personnel of National Regulation Agencies (NRAs), Quality Assurance Agencies (NQAs) and higher education institutions on current developments on quality assurance and provide a forum where they can share ideas and learn from one another for the good of higher education in Africa.
The Good Practices initiative is expected to significantly contribute to strengthening the capacity of institutuions to deliver on their core business. Knowledge gained will be shared among institutional colleagues and other stakeholders, as well as guide and inform current work, structure and future programming on quality assurance on campus.
