As part of QQI's external quality assurance function, we are currently engaged in a series of quality dialogue meetings (QDMs) with Ireland's publicly-regulated higher education institutions. These meetings provide an opportunity for QQI to discuss with each institution internal and strategic developments in relation to quality assurance.
The 2020 QDM series will include discussion of:
The experience of institutional contingency arrangements for teaching, learning and assessment arising from the COVID-19 pandemic and implications for the 2020-2021 academic year;
National developments and initiatives across the tertiary education sector in response to COVID-19
Institutional quality enhancement;
The CINNTE institutional review cycle;
Updates to national policy and legislation; and
QQI activities relating to quality assurance, qualifications, assessment and academic integrity.
