  • QAA Workshop: Managing higher education provision with others
  • Date:  Thursday, 25 April 2013
  • Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama, Cardiff

    10:00 - 15:30 

    To register your interest in attending this workshop, please complete the registration form and return to Suzanne Foy s.foy@qaa.ac.uk.

    The QAA is holding a one-day workshop on behalf of HEFCW to explore in detail the recently published Chapter of the UK Quality Code for Higher Education, B10: Managing higher education provision with others. The workshop will take place on 25 April 2013 in Cardiff, 10:00 to 15:30.

    The event will be of particular interest to staff involved in managing collaborations with higher education and non-higher education partners (for example, quality managers, staff involved in review activities, or work placement managers). The workshop is not concerned with pedagogies or methods of teaching and learning in collaborative arrangements.

    An overview of Chapter B10 will be given in the morning - what is it about, how is it new. The afternoon will be dedicated to exploring implications of Chapter B10 for both reviews, and for the day-to-day management of collaborations such as study abroad or work placements. There will be plenty of opportunity to discuss questions about Chapter B10 in detail.
