We will develop a common Quality Approach enabling certification of ENLIGHT courses and degrees and automatic recognition of study periods across ENLIGHT as the basis of a European University System. Under this action, we will:
→ Set up an internal ENLIGHT QUALITY ASSURANCE (QA) TASKFORCE:
› Provide automated QA reports to inform ENLIGHT governance and adopt adjustive measures if required;
› Apply the Plan Do Check Act (PDCA) methodology as a basis for a joint quality approach;
› Conduct surveys and semi-structured interviews among contributors, stakeholders and beneficiaries.
→ Develop a common ENLIGHT QUALITY APPROACH, to ensure comparable quality, mutually accepted institutional practices and similar degree and learning path value for all nine partner universities:
› Develop a roadmap towards a joint ENLIGHT Quality Approach (analysis of the existing, development of common principles, shifting to an overarching quality approach leveraging experience from EUniQ1);
› Set up an ENLIGHT certification system for individual courses/modules based on clear descriptions of the learning outcomes and on technical standards of the European student card initiative.
→ Establish the basis for an ENLIGHT UNIVERSITY SYSTEM:
› Choose the scenario to be implemented by the ENLIGHT Governing Board after consultation of the individual university governance boards
› Develop a framework agreement describing the future ENLIGHT structure and implementation stages to be approved by the individual governance boards
