Professional Summary Description: Over the last twenty five years I developed a broad overview over higher education. I worked as a teacher, head of department, inspector, auditor and advisor and learned to look at the processes of learning and education from different perspectives. I generally take an integral approach to studies, faculties and institutions with a central focus on Quality. Over the years I have come to realize that the key to true Quality is the creation of a learning community of students, teaching staff and management. Important conditions are:
 There is a central vision, that takes into consideration the own history and context as well as the external developments. This vision should inspire, show direction and at the same time create space for the creativity of the teaching staff.
 There is a policy derived from the central vision and a clear distribution of responsibilities in the organization.
 There is a continuous dialogue, internally and externally.
 There is a culture of trust, openness, quality awareness, ownership and accountability.
 There is transformative leadership witch concentrates on the common goals but shows respect to the differences between groups and between individuals.

As head of department I tried to fulfill these conditions. As inspector and auditor I treated these conditions as important criteria for evaluating studies and organizations and giving feedback.

My key competences are:
 A broad knowledge of higher education from the main perspectives.
 A broad knowledge on Quality, Quality assurance and Quality enhancement.
 Good analytical skills, especially in evaluating studies and organizations as in audits.
 The ability to inspire, motivate and unite people in order to achieve common goals.
 Knowledge of different cultures and different systems of quality assurance and accreditation in various countries.

My main objectives are:
 Helping faculties or institutions in setting up a quality assurance system of preparing for accreditation.
 Helping agencies in setting up a system of accreditation.
 Contributing to mutual understanding and cooperation between institutions from different countries.
 Broadening my own knowledge of the international developments on Quality, Quality Assurance and Quality Enhancement.
