Dear Participants of the Seminar,

In the following you will find summaries of some speeches held at the Seminar 'Qual¬ity Assurance in Higher Education'. It is not a compilation of all the lectures hold but of the most important ones. Other material - e.g. from ZEvA, from the University of Kassel etc. - were delivered to the participants in paper form.

In addition to that summaries we have add some further important documents con¬cerning the Bologna Process, the process of accrediting and monitoring in general etc.. You will find these papers in the section 'material'. For the delivery of most of the papers we have to thank Prof. Dr. Helmut Winkler of the Centre for Research on Higher Education and Work of the University of Kassel.

Please contact us if there are further questions left. You will find our address at the end of this page.

With best regards,

Albert Over
