«Using EFQM in higher education: Ten years of experience with programme auditing at Hanzehogeschool Groningen Evert Bisschop Boele, Hiltje Burgler, ...»

-- [ Page 4 ] --

Related to the previous point, it sometimes happens that programmes treat the audit process as a “trick to be performed”. Management, teachers, externals and sometimes even students know how the audit works, which paperwork is expected from them, and which answer they have to give in order to satisfy the committee. Honesty is crucial in auditing, and the quality assurance department of the university does its best to keep honesty and self-criticism at the heart of the process. The less threatening an audit is, the easier this becomes. In the actual audit processes we therefore stress constantly the fact that the process is owned by the programmes themselves, that the results are their results and the conclusions drawn are their proper conclusions.

8.6 The quality assurance of internal quality assurance

Finally, the quality assurance of the internal quality assurance system is crucial. Feedback on the quality of internal quality assurance is one of the items looked at in programme accreditation, and this feedback is positive. Including externally trained auditors in the pool of auditors is a concrete measure to ensure a high level of expertise. However, no surveys on “customer” satisfaction with internal quality assurance processes at Hanzehogeschool Groningen, or on auditors’ views on the auditing system exist so far. This may

be an area of future improvement. Quality awareness at Hanzehogeschool Groningen should extend to all areas and levels – including quality assurance processes themselves.
