Newsletter July 2022
What we did in July 2022 – Activities of the EU-funded Twinning Project “Further support to the implementation of the National Qualifications Framework” MK IPA 17 SO 01 21
During July, as part of Activity 1.2.1, the first draft of the Manual on Methodology and Procedures on Quality Assurance was developed by experts commissioned by the Project, including Vidmantas Tūtlys, Aurelija Valeikienė, Brigitte Bouquet, Lina Vaitkutė, Odeta Kupetienė, Leva Vaiciukevičienė, Ana Tecilazić, Slavica Černoša, and Nora Skburskienė. The Manual is intended for new users in AQAHE (Boards) and practitioners of all Higher Education and Vocational Education and Training institutions and it includes practical guidelines and recommendations as well as instruments for the implementation and development of the internal and external Quality Assurance measures. Reference material on External References of Programme Learning Outcomes and step-by-step activities for development/revision of study programmes will also be part of the Manual.
On request of the Project’s beneficiaries, the project team also completed the translation of the document Standards and Guidelines for Quality Assurance in the European Higher Education Area (ESG) used as a reference for internal and external quality assurance systems in higher education. The translation has the aim to enhance the common understanding of quality assurance for learning and teaching across borders and among all stakeholders.
