INQAAHE Events, Namibia 2010

INQAAHE’s next global meeting (the Forum) is in Windhoek, Namibia, from 5-6 May 2010. INQAAHE has planned and/or supported further associated events, with an eye to specifically African-oriented content and focus. INQAAHE hopes that AfriQAN, and other African QA agencies and QA networks, will be able to take advantage of the developmental opportunity offered by the INQAAHE Annual Forum being in the continent. Simultaneous translation for events is being provided by GIQAC and AUF.

The following is the outline for the week:

Day Activity
Monday 3 May Open Educational Resources, UNESCO/CoL
Tuesday 4 May Two pre-Forum workshops 

(0900-1230 & 1330-1630)

AfriQAN meeting/ activity


Wednesday 5 May INQAAHE Biennial Forum
Thursday 6 May INQAAHE Biennial Forum
Friday 7 May
  • Meeting of QA networks (from around the world)
  • AfriQAN meeting
  • GIQAC meeting with African representatives
Saturday 8 May GIQAC meeting


The Capacity-building workshop on 3 May is being arranged by UNESCO and the Commonwealth of Learning (CoL) and is intended to gain feedback from QA experts on the QA issues surrounding the use of OERs in higher education in developing countries

The two pre-Forum workshops (4 May) cater to a global audience, while covering topics of local relevance.

i. Morning: QA mechanisms for QA agencies – EVA, ANECA (Signe Ploug Hansen, Rafael Llavori)

ii. Afternoon: Training reviewers – AUQA, BAN-PT (Antony Stella, Adil Ahza)

AfriQAN activity (4 May): AfriQAN meeting: aims and objectives of the Network

The Forum itself (5-6 May) has the theme Responsiveness of EQAs. It is designed to cater for a global QA audience, but it is INQAAHE’s experience that its annual events always create a great deal of energy and activity in the local geographic region.

On 7 May, INQAAHE will facilitate a meeting of networks of QA agencies. At the meeting in Paris, it was foreshadowed that the agenda will include: reports on projects and available training materials, and the use of several languages on websites.

The current outline for the day is:

Session #1 0900-1030 Reports on projects;

Session #2 1100-1230 GIQAC topics;

Session #3 1330-1500 Training materials;

Session #4 1530-1630 Multiple languages on websites.

0900-1230, AfriQAN will facilitate a meeting of African colleagues to discuss national QA experiences

1700-1830 Global Initiative for QA Capacity-Building (GIQAC) steering committee members meeting with African colleagues

On 8 May, the GIQAC steering committee will be holding a meeting
