La directora de la ANECA compartió la respuesta estratégica de la Agencia el pasado miércoles 20 de mayo en el ENQA Webinar para directoras y directores de agencias europeas miembros en el que se dieron a conocer algunas de las respuestas estratégicas frente a la COVID-19.

La reunión, coordinada por la directora de la ENQA Maria Kelo, ha permitido a las agencias de calidad europeas conocer las iniciativas para hacer frente a los desafíos del COVID-19 de algunas de las agencias europeas, entre ellas las de Noruega, los Países Bajos y España, así como abordar posibles planes para afrontar el inicio del próximo curso académico 2020-2021.
En el intercambio de experiencias, Mercedes Siles Molina pudo explicar a sus colegas la “Estrategia de la ANECA para el Aseguramiento de la Calidad en la Enseñanza Virtual ” (se enlaza a su versión en inglés) que publicó la Agencia el pasado 17 de abril y que incluye la propuesta de “Implantación del sello de calidad de la enseñanza virtual”.

La información sobre la experiencia piloto de visita virtual de renovación de la acreditación que está implantando ANECA fue objeto de gran interés entre algunas de las personas asistentes. Maria Kelo informó que en las próximas semanas la ENQA va a desarrollar las iniciativas para facilitar el intercambio de información sobre estrategias y planes de futuro para hacer frente a la nueva situación derivada del COVID-19.

El que sigue es un resumen de lo expuesto por la directora de la ANECA:

In ANECA we have been working online since the very beginning of the pandemia and we have continued our work as if we were in a normal situation. Of course, adapting our labor to a non-presential context.

Concerning the accreditation of the studies (degree, master and doctorate) we have been and we are permanently in contact with the Universities. And also with the Ministry of Universities. It is very important to work together.

The goal is to accompany them in the process of adapting from the normal context to this new one in which virtuality has been imposed.

We have been supporting the Universities all of the time. First, in silence offering our help in everything. Then, listening and speaking about their worries, their needs; providing them with guidance and accompanying their actions.

We prepared a document, the ANECA strategy for quality assurance in pv-learning (presencial-virtual) which we can send to anyone interested in it.

Our point of view is based on the confidence in the institutions, in the Universities, to do their best in order to assure the quality of their studies, in order to assure their compromise with their students in offering them a learning of quality.

The Universities have prepared the corresponding information for the students in order to let them know the changes in the teaching and in the evaluation, and this documentation will be added once they have to be evaluated by the ANECA. We offered them to revised this documentation, and we did. I have to say that the Universities have done a great job.
In the meanwhile we had an on-line visit to a university and we have prepared it online. As soon as we will finish the pilot experience, we will publish it conveniently.
We have used the knowledge provided by the TeSLA project as well as the experience of the universities, the new experience in this COVID time and we have prepared the label for blended-learning and the stamp of excellence for blended-learning.
