Assurance Academy presents the How to webinars - Regional focus: Asia-Pacific
Given a great deal of activity around quality in
higher education and within business schools in particular, the series of eight
“QAA HOW TO webinars” was just completed, as an offshoot of the Quality
Assurance Academy – an EFMD GN Professional Development programme for quality
and accreditation professionals organised in partnership with RimaOne.
Recognising the diversity of business schools around the world and knowing that
steps to be undertaken by any institution to assure its quality processes
differ, to a certain extent, according to the geographical, political and
socio-cultural context within which it finds itself, we would like to
additionally provide a
more regional perspective
on the entire series of topics related to quality assurance.
regionally-focused webinars were added to the QAA HOW TO series: one for the
Americas and the other for the Asia-Pacific. Our aim is to bring together the
QA professionals with a common interest in quality assurance, willing to share
information, lessons learned and best practices with the community seeking

Learning from an intervention case study
Student well-being as
part of the student experience has been one of the foremost issues in HE
planning in recent years, with an increased focus on what is distinctive about
student mental health and what responsibilities institutions have to support
students. However, most studies have focused on the undergraduate experience.
Concurrently, there has been an increase in the number of studies considering
postgraduate students’ mental well-being. Yet, there is a clear distinction
between these two groups and the increasing numbers of postgraduate taught
This interactive online
workshop will focus on what is distinctive about the PGT student experience and
well-being support with the mapping of the needs of PGT students, how dedicated
student services can support these, and also how these services fit within the
broader institution. It will address the challenges presented by engaging
students who are generally with an institution for only one year, and how this
is exacerbated when engaging international students with different
understandings of mental well-being.
Jordan Dawson, Student
Experience Manager, will present the benefits and evaluation of a dedicated PGT
support service with reference to a school-specific advising service
established at the Adam Smith Business School, Glasgow University, in 2019/20.
Participants will have the opportunity to discuss how to improve the service
offering at their own institution.
This interactive online workshop is designed for academics and professional
service staff who interact with students – and particularly post-graduate
students – seeking advise on well-being. It will also be of interest to those
in charge of organisational staff well-being.
