Editors: Alberto Amaral (Center for Research on Higher Education Policies, Matsinhos, Portugal), Airi Rovio-Johansson (Goteborg Univ., Sweden), Maria Joao Rosa (Univ. of Averio, Portugal) and Don Westerheijden (Univ. of Twente, The Netherlands)
Book Description:
This book offers a unique view on the quality audit programme that the European University Association has been offering to its members for more than a decade. The authors are all closely involved in the operation of the programme, and thus are able to present a critical view of the advantages of the methodology of supportive peer review addressing both theoretical concepts and study cases in a language that is simultaneously appropriate for researchers and for practitioners.
