The 3rd European Quality Assurance Forum in Budapest

Organized by the E4 (EUA, ENQA, ESU, EURASHE) the 3rd Quality Assurance Forum was held at Corvinus University in Budapest 20-22 November 2008. The main issues were the importance of engaging all university members in a common quality culture, and learning outcomes, which requires a new paradigm in approaching teaching and learning. A third main topic was university ranking, which is gaining popularity but which the participants overwhelmingly rejected as a quality assurance tool. Nevertheless – also in light of the call for a new ranking instrument by the French EU presidency – ranking should be steered into acceptable and realistic channels by considering the purpose and environment of the examined entity, and to allow for a variety of institutions for various needs.
