Aragon Agency for Quality Assurance and Strategic Foresight in Higher Education (ACPUA)

The ACPUA has given a workshop in English on quality and sustainability within the celebration of the 30th anniversary of INQAAHE (International Network for Quality Assurance Agencies in Higher Education). This conference ("CELEBRATING 30 YEARS OF GLOBAL ACHIEVEMENT") took place in the Aula Magna of the University of Barcelona on October 7th and 8th in front of an in-person and virtual audience. The workshop, which lasted 3 hours, was given together with the Andorran agency AQUA, which in the first part of the workshop narrated the development and results of the project that, with the sponsorship of INQAAHE, the two agencies are carrying out in 2018 and 2019 on "Making connections between the institutional evaluation and the Sustainable Development Goals". Then, our agency has explained in detail the origin, launch, criteria and protocol of our ALCAEUS program for the certification of the degree of commitment of universities to the SDGs. Also ACPUA has given information about the ALCAEUS pilot program that we have been developing within the university system of Aragon. This workshop was given on behalf of ACPUA by its director, Antonio Serrano; its technical coordinator, Isabel Ortega, and the quality expert and external collaborator of ACPUA, Andy Tunnicliffe. In the final part of the workshop, the ACPUA put into practice interesting group dynamics.
