A small-scale regional forum was organised targeting the APQN member agencies in the Asia-Pacific region.
The purpose of the regional forum was threefold:
- to verify and collect further information on the host perspective;
- to inform the partner countries or potential partner countries of the state of art in QA of CBHE in Europe, by presenting the outcomes of the activities linked to the European agencies and institutions; and
- to facilitate the creation of collaborative links between European and non-European QA agencies and authorities. Other expected outcomes of the event were further policy dialogue within and between the regions, and enhanced mutual understanding of the approaches and policies to QA of CBHE.
The event gathered around 35 participants from QA agencies and other relevant actors in cross-border higher education (CBHE) in the region. Project partners from Europe and Australia also participated in the event, both to present outcomes of the other project activities and well as to discuss needs and opportunities for collaboration between agencies and relevant authorities in the future.
The event took place after the data collection in Europe and Australia was finalised, and when the agency surveys in each of the regions were completed.
The Asian Regional Forum took place on 22-23 Jannuary 2015 and was hosted by APQN member, GAES, in Macau. The event was open to participants by invitation only.
