The organisers of ASEAN-QA project, namely; The German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD), the German Rectors´ Conference (HRK), and the University of Potsdam together with partners from Southeast Asia and Europe: ASEAN Quality Assurance Network (AQAN), ASEAN University Network (AUN), European Association for Quality Assurance in Higher Education (ENQA), and the Regional Centre for Higher Education and Development (SEAMEO-RIHED) have decided to extend the capacity development plan of QA professionals into phase 2.
Phase 2 will focus on training modules “TrainIQA”, which are newly developed to meet the increasing demands and needs of internal quality assurance in higher education. A series of workshops based on these modules will be offered to the IQA officers at ASEAN universities from 2014 to 2016.
The preparatory meeting was hosted by Malaysian Qualifications Agency (MQA) which was held on 2 April 2014 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Mr. Johnson Ong Chee Bin was invited as an AUN-QA expert to provide inputs for the preparation and adaptation of the training modules to the regional needs for ASEAN-QA Phase 2.
