The National Qualifications Authority of Ireland has announced details of a conference on “Accreditation and Assessment in Irish Higher Education – The Emerging Scenario”. Quite a mouthful of a title! Basically it’s primarily a conference on the Bologna Process, although (probably for the sake of the domestic audience) the blurb talks about the National Framework of Qualifications and the linked Bologna agenda (!). The workshops, in particular (see the full schedule (PDF) for more) cover everything from the recognition of prior learning to external accreditation.

The venue is the lovely National University of Ireland, Maynooth. Taking place on the afternoon of Thursday 25th January and the morning of the 26th.
