ASEAN-QA Open Forum (Unconference)

 

The Open Forum is similar to an unconference and thus a participant-driven format which gives participants the opportunity to discuss issues and cases related to the practice of quality assurance and teaching and learning with others. The more specific these are, the better. The idea to offer this type of format is to support peer-exchange between the participants and to contribute in solving challenges within the QA world with the perspectives and experiences of peers. Topics have been handed in during registration and those chosen to be discussed will be informed via e-mail with further directions.
