One of the highlights of the Visit in Potsdam was a panel discussion at the Federal Ministry of Education and Research and a Meeting with MdB Dr. Lengsfeld in Berlin, Germany. The quality assurance practices in German universities and the role of stakeholders, for example of national and state government in quality assurance and promoting a quality culture in higher education, was of major interest. Further topics were the role of leadership in quality assurance, recent trends in higher education and external quality assurance and common higher education spaces in ASEAN and Europe.

The first TrainIQA workshop will take place in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, between 23rd and 27th February 2015.
