Site-visits within the framework of ALIGN project have already initiated. The three Ukrainian universities: Sumy State University, Kiev National University and Khmelnitsky National University have already undergone external evaluation of the revised academic programs.
Work Package 4 of the ALIGN project focuses on the piloting of developed mechanisms for alignment. Thus universities were expected to select two academic programs and review them, develop Learning Ooutcomes (LO) that are in line with the descriptors of NQFs, develop assessment methods for evaluating student achievement of LOs, develop necessary teaching and learning methods, curricula and other elements of the academic programs.
Peer-review panels comprising ALIGN EU experts and representatives of Quality Assurance Agencies of each partner country (Armenia, Russia and Ukraine) were supposed to evaluate achievement of alignment with NQFs by applying the following procedures: desk-review, site-visit and report production.
