Around 50 Montenegrin higher education professionals, including internal quality assurance bodies, students’ organisation representatives and other relevant stakeholders gathered in Kolasin on 27-28 June to attend the seminar “The role of quality assurance in fostering academic integrity”.
Participants discussed to what extent both internal and external quality assurance bodies in higher education could address the issue of academic integrity in their reviews as well as link between curbing academic dishonesty and improving the quality of studies. The seminar featured outstanding international experts who presented to their Montenegrin counterparts the current theoretical knowledge developed on the subject. They also shared their practical experience when dealing with integrity issues in their professional careers.
Montenegrin delegates expressed their interest in having additional and similar events in the future. They enable the stakeholders to learn more about developing a culture of quality and integrity among academic institutions in the country.
The seminar was organised under the Action “Strengthen Integrity and Combat Corruption in Higher Education”, co-funded by the European Union and the Council of Europe within the “Horizontal Facility for Western Balkans and Turkey” and implemented by the Council of Europe.
