The audit of Arcada University of Applied Sciences
15.5.2017 klo 08:00 – 17:00
The audit of Arcada’s quality system is conducted between October 2016 and April 2018. A three-day site visit is carried out 21-23 November 2017. The interaction and cooperation between the educational departments and student services in relation to the guidance of students has been chosen by Arcada as one of the audit targets (so called optional audit target). The audit is carried out by a Nordic audit team.
The audit team consists of the following members:
PhD Ingegerd Palmér, former rector, Mälardalen University (chair of the audit team)
Kristina Falkenstedt, development manager, Swedish education services, city of Espoo
PhD i Mona Fjellström, senior lecturer (associate professor), Umeå university
Erik Kaunismäki, student, Hanken School of Economics
PhD Helge Salvesen, professor emeritus, University of Tromsö
The objective of the FINEEC audit is to support Finnish HEIs in developing quality systems that correspond to the European principles of quality assurance and to demonstrate that functional and consistent quality assurance procedures are in place in Finland both in institutions and on the national level.
The participating HEIs have themselves decided on the development and form of their quality systems, and the audit assesses the comprehensiveness, functionality and effectiveness of those systems. The audits are guided by the principle of enhancement-led evaluation that has formed into a strong tradition in Finnish evaluation practice. The goal is to help HEIs to recognise the strengths, good practices and areas in need of development in their operations. The institutions are supported in their efforts to reach their strategic objectives and in directing future development activities in order to create a framework for the institutions’ continuous development.
FINEEC is a member of the European Quality Assurance Register for Higher Education (EQAR) and is a full member of the European Association for Quality Assurance in Higher Education (ENQA).
