Ensuring high quality online education
The accreditation process carried out by the association is highly comprehensive and considers a vast array of aspects related to educational institutions. These aspects encompass:
Evaluation of lecturers quality: The association meticulously assesses the professional knowledge, experience, and pedagogical skills of lecturers, ensuring they have the necessary qualifications and expertise to effectively educate students.
Evaluation of educational programs: The association scrutinizes the content, structure, and relevance of the offered educational programs, ensuring they are up-to-date, well-designed, and properly aligned with current job market demands and industry standards.
Availability and effectiveness of teaching: The association evaluates the accessibility of teaching for students from various socioeconomic backgrounds, taking into account factors such as financial aid, inclusive policies, and support structures. Additionally, it examines whether the institution offers flexible and innovative teaching methods, focusing on the development of students’ competencies and practical skills for real-world applications.
Support and services for students: The association assesses the range and quality of support and services provided to students, including career counseling, scholarships, mentoring, and other resources essential for their academic and personal growth.
Research and collaboration: The association investigates the extent to which the institution promotes and supports research activities and subsequent publication. This includes fostering collaboration with industry partners, interdisciplinary research projects, and providing resources for research. These factors contribute to the development of students’ professional knowledge and practical skills, preparing them for their future careers.
After completion of the accreditation process, the association issues an assessment of the institution, which transparently declares its quality in the field of education and other assessed aspects. This assessment serves as assurance of the high level of quality of educational institutions and the programs they offer, benefiting students, educators and the wider community.
