Dear Colleagues and Friends in Higher Education,
We are pleased to make the second announcement of the 8th International Conference on Quality Assurance in Higher Education in Africa (ICQAHEA) scheduled to hold from 20th to 24th September, 2016 in Namibia. This edition of ICQAHEA promises to be specially enriching as it focuses on"Multidimensions of Innovation in Higher Education in Africa: Towards Enhancing Quality and Accelerating Regional Harmonisation". It will take participants beyond the stereotype in quality assurance to new trajectories and emerging innovations worth applying in the quest to accelerate quality improvement at the institutional, national and regional higher education levels all within the framework of regional harmonisation. There will be six high-class plenary sessions bundled with lively discussions to share good practices; six workshops to learn new skills in quality assurance; meeting of the African Quality Assurance Network (AfriQAN) and a symposium of vice-chancellors, rectors and presidents of African universities on effective management of higher education institutions to improve quality. In the 8th ICQAHEA, we have four events rolled into one! You cannot afford to miss it. The lovely country of Namibia beckons to host us.
