To this end a regional training course on internal quality assurance (TrainIQA) has been developed under ASEAN-QA which aims at preparing QA officers to become multipliers in the field of IQA at their universities. TrainIQA is based on a set of five modules with a strong practical focus, mainly concerned with tools and procedures of QA, curriculum design and revision, change management and linkages between quality management and higher education management. The course will be accompanied by an online module on data-based information management, data sharing and reporting.

TrainIQA is coordinated by the Centre for Quality Development of the University of Potsdam which hosts the ASEAN-QA Secretariat. Any questions related to the Call and the training course can be addressed to asean-qa@uni-potsdam.de.
