Peer review is one of the guiding principles in the institutional evaluation process of HEEC. HEEC always selects prospective experts and provides professional trainings to help them do their jobs in the audit evaluation process. All the experts should be selected based on their professional experiences in higher education institutions(HEIs) and/or relevant industries as well as in quality assurance. This year HEEC organized audit evaluation experts training on April 12 in Qingdao Cop Thorne Hotel. Prior to their participations in the audit evaluation exercises, experts were introduced about the audit work and their roles.

At the end of the training, the experts were supposed to have clear visions about their work in the future audit evaluations.
Over 500 experts and project managers attended the training. HEEC gave every expert and managera Training Certificate. The certificates are important symbols for HEEC’s acknowledgements and welcomes to the new experts to join the audit evaluation.

The audit evaluation is an important form of the institutional evaluation in China. HEEC will conduct altogether 85 universities’ (colleges’) audit evaluation in 2018. That is the reason why more audit experts are needed this year. Surely the newly-trained experts will do their contributions in the future. And HEEC would follow the performance of each expert and provide the necessary help to ensure the quality of audit evaluations.
