The Asia-Pacific Regional Conference on Quality Assurance will inform and shape the 2018 international conference on quality assurance (QA) in higher education organized by UNESCO.  As part of a regional consultation for Asia and the Pacific, UNESCO Bangkok would like to invite interested students and stakeholders to contribute their views, aspirations and challenges.

In doing so, the conference will:

 1) Take stock of innovative QA policies and practices at system, institution, subject and programme levels in Asia-Pacific;

 2) Build understanding of the links between QA, qualifications frameworks and recognition, including promote ratification and implementation of the 2011 Tokyo Convention;

 3) Raise awareness about QA of nontraditional modes of learning (e.g. MOOCs, blended learning, etc.);

 4) Connect multiple QA initiatives in Asia-Pacific to promote synergies and cross-fertilization.

Requests to attend will be accepted through 19 May 2017. There is no conference fee to join.
