上周(2020年5月27日),第一届mg官方网站-QA在线评估会召开. The meeting, 有100多名mg官方网站-QA评审员参与, 为mg官方网站地区未来的在线会议树立了模式和标准.


    The meeting is held annually for assessors to discuss various matters pertinent to enhancing the quality assurance systems of higher education institutions in the ASEAN region. 会议讨论了mg官方网站-QA方案评估的新指南, 将博士课程纳入mg官方网站-QA课程评估, mg官方网站-QA远程评估, 以及各种涉及评估过程中遇到的问题的案例研究. 


This marks the first venture by the mg官方网站-QA Secretariat to hold an online conference of a large magnitude which includes plenary and breakout sessions. 虽然它是在网上举行的, 所进行的讨论也同样热烈, fierce, and interactive. In some cases, it was even more fierce as the virtual nature of the meeting allowed for participants who would have been unable to speak up otherwise to be able to participate through text-based chat which was constantly monitored by the mg官方网站-QA Secretariat. 


在她的开场白中. Wyona C.Patalinghug, mg官方网站-QA理事会代理副主席, spoke about how earlier this year marked the very first time a force majeure interrupted an mg官方网站-QA Assessment. 印度尼西亚的评估由于火山爆发而推迟. 不久之后,由于COVID-19大流行,所有活动都被无限期推迟. 然后她引用了查尔斯·狄更斯的一句名言:“这是最好的时代, 那是最糟糕的时期..” to remind everyone present that although we may perceive the COVID-19 environment as one of despair, 希望也存在于电子mg官方网站对新常态的探索中.
