QEC, IBA Karachi organizes a session on Framework for Internal Quality Assurance of HEIs

In the absence of a uniformed QA system, different programs within HEIs follow different QA practices based on the guidelines of their respective accreditation bodies, which causes inconsistency in QA practices across HEIs. Understanding this need, the Quality Enhancement Cell (QEC) at IBA conducted a session on the “Framework for Internal Quality Assurance of HEIs” facilitated by Dr Muhammad Abdul Wahid Usmani, Director QEC at Jinnah Sindh Medical University (JSMU), Pakistan. 

The session aimed to understand the need for an internal QA mechanism and preparation of internal QA system. 

QEC representatives from all HEIs in Pakistan were invited. Since the session was conducted in a hybrid environment, some participants attended in person while others participated online. The session to be very fruitful and productive resulting in a demand for a follow-up.
