Transparencia en la educación superior a través de informes públicos de control de calidad

La evolución hacia una sociedad más fundada en el conocimiento científico y una fuerte competitividad en el mercado laboral ha dado lugar a un creciente interés en la educación superior en Europa. Dado el gran número de instituciones de educación superior (IES) y programas de estudio en el mercado, la elección de un programa y/o una institución se ha vuelto una tarea más complicada. Actualmente, la mayoría de los estudiantes y muchos miembros del público están buscando información más detallada y confiable sobre la calidad de los programas de estudio individuales, las facultades y las IES. Desde esta perspectiva, los informes de control de calidad pueden considerarse una fuente importante de información confiable y transparente. Esta herramienta también puede apoyar la rendición de cuentas, la mejora de la calidad y la ascendencia estratégica.

Después de una certificación positiva de acuerdo con los estándares de calidad de la AAC, recibirá el sello de calidad de la AAC para los programas o instituciones acreditadas. Los resultados, los nombres de los revisores y el informe de evaluación se publicarán en la página Web de la AAC.

Higher education, research and innovation play a crucial role in supporting social cohesion, economic growth and global competitiveness. The focus of the ESG is on quality assurance related to learning and teaching in higher education, including the learning environment and relevant links to research and innovation. The new Standards and guidelines for quality assurance in the European Higher Education Area (ESG) were adopted in 2015 by 48 European Ministers responsible for higher education. The Ministers following a proposal prepared by the European Association for Quality Assurance in Higher Education (ENQA) in co-operation with the European Students’ Union (ESU), the European Association of Institutions in Higher Education (EURASHE) and the European University Association (EUA). Since 2005, considerable progress has been made in quality assurance as well as in other Bologna action lines such as qualification frameworks, recognition and the promotion of the use of learning outcomes, all these contributing to a paradigm shift towards student-centered learning and teaching. The ESG are a set of standards and guidelines for internal and external quality assurance in higher education. The ESG are not standards for quality, nor do they prescribe how the quality assurance processes are implemented, but they provide guidance, covering the areas which are vital for successful quality provision and learning environments in higher education.

The Standards for Accreditation are an articulation by the higher education community of what a college or university must do in order to deserve the public trust. They also function as a framework for institutional development and self-evaluation. The U.S. Department of Education and the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA) (a non-governmental organization) both recognize reputable accrediting bodies for institutions of higher education and provide guidelines as well as resources and relevant data regarding these accreditors. Neither the U.S. Department of Education nor CHEA accredit individual institutions. In 2013, President Barack Obama proposed changes in the accreditation system to hold «colleges accountable for cost, value, and quality». He requested Congress change the Higher Education Act so that affordability and value are considered in determining which institutions are accredited and allow students access to federal financial aid. Only institutions and programs accredited by an US federally recognized accreditor can provide students with access to US federal student aid, including Pell Grants and student loans

The goal of accreditation in US is to ensure that education provided by institutions of higher education meets acceptable levels of quality.

Education

Consultants

The AAC can support you with all your accreditation procedures by connecting you to the Representatives of AAC – education consultants, that have the necessary understanding and expertise acquired during many years of working in higher education.

These education professionals are very knowledgeable and have been contributing to the European Bologna process since the very beginning and to the American Guidelines. They have an in-depth knowledge and they recognize the needs of institutions, students, as well as the labor market.

As consultants working with and between accreditation bodies and universities, they have successfully attended many universities and institutions during the accreditation process. Their approach in consulting is based on practical experience as well as the analysis of quality assurance procedures for both types of accreditation procedures: program or institutional accreditation. Both of these accreditation procedures must adhere to national legislation and be in accordance with international requirements like the ENQA guiding principles (European Standards and Guidelines) and/or the American Guidelines!

The work of our partner consultants, who are completely independent from the AAC, is guided by high moral standards as well as a strong sense of responsibility. Please feel free to contact the representatives/consultants working with us to see whether your university or institutions can achieve its own educational goals and whether it can observe all the requirements of the accrediting body at program and/or institutional level.
