Peer Power - The ELIA Quality Enhancement Project
Developing a knowledge centre for self-responsible institutional development

In the last years ELIA has developed a distinct approach towards Quality Assurance and Enhancement, including a methodology tailored for Higher Arts Education Institutions. 
Through developing this expertise and establishing principles and processes we are now able to act as European reference points for higher arts education, offering services and professional guidance in the following fields:

Qualification Frameworks – developed trans-national lifelong learning reference tools for ensuring comparability and greater transparency.
Quality Assurance and Enhancement - ELIA has trained experts and tested its methodology for institutional review as well as programme review in different member institutions and different disciplines.
Learning Outcomes and competences – defined at BA, MA and PhD levels for dance, design, fine art, theatre and film education.

The ELIA Knowledge Centre can help both institutions and national QA agencies through workshops, peer review and advice.
