Report for Nominations of Experts for Database of Consultants

Report for Nominations of Experts for Database of Consultants

Aimed at enhancing the database of consultants for use by national systems or institutions in various areas of quality assurance in tertiary education and seeking nominations from its member organizations, APQN Secretariat has sent all members an email “Call for nominations of experts for Database of Consultants” on January 2020. Thanks to all members’ warm cooperation and careful consideration, APQN Secretariat has collected 51 submissions in March, which contributes a lot to the further development of the database of consultants.

APQN encourages each APQN member to nominate qualified candidates and show great passion for all nominations. After collecting those submissions, a special-establish APQN Review Committee has reviewed the Consultant Database of the above all applications in April. APQN Review Committee is composed of Prof Dr. Jianxin Zhang, Prof Dr. Galina Motova, Dr. Jagannath Patil, Ms I-Jung Grace Lu, Ms Farida Nurmanbetova, Prof. Deepthi C. Bandara and Ms Pingping Liu. After being reviewed by all the members of the Committee, the final decision was made. 46 from 51 submissions stands out and are qualified nominees according to the review committee.

The consultants are focused on the following three areas to strengthen a global database: (1) general quality assurance consultants; (2) consultants in institutional quality assurance; (3) consultants for programmatic quality assurance

We appreciate it very much that all members and review committees devote quite much to the whole process.

You can find information in details in APQN website:
