Capacity Building Workshop for National Quality Assurance / Accreditation Agencies

Dodowa report

The Association of African Universities (AAU) encourages the facilitation of networking and information exchange between and among African quality assurance/ accreditation agencies towards establishing regional and continental networks.

To discharge its commitment in promoting the quality of African higher education, the AAU has initiated a “Quality Assurance Support Programme” in collaboration with the World Bank and UNESCO.

One component of this programme intends to support national quality assurance/accreditation agencies in developing strong external evaluation and monitoring systems as key strategy for the development of credible and effective education and training systems in Africa.

As part of the activities under the Support Programme, the AAU has organized a capacity building workshop to both emerging and existing national quality assurance agencies from 15th to 17th April 2009 at Dodowa, near Accra, Ghana. The workshop was the first of its kind to bring African quality assurance agencies in one platform.

This provided an opportunity for the agencies to share their experiences and learn from each other; exchange and update information; disseminate good practices of quality assurance; reinforce regional harmonization; and facilitate networking and continental cooperation. Moreover, it created the basis for promoting the establishment of African Quality Assurance Network (AfriQAN).
