Towards a Robust Internal Quality Assurance System (IQAS) in the State Colleges and Universities” was the theme in the 2016 Mid-year Conference which formally launched the implementation of IQAS among SUCs in the country. This was held at Royal Garden Hall Convention Center at General Luna St., Iloilo City last July 27-29, 2016.
Prof. Dr. Sun Jianrung, from Macau University of Science and Technology, served as the guest speaker, who talked on the concepts and practices of internal quality assurance. In his talk, he emphasized that IQAS involves both the administrative and academic functions of an institution. As an administrative function, it needs a functional organizational structure; and, as an academic function, it involves processes and procedures of evaluation affecting the curriculum, instruction, accountability, and other academic operations of an institution.
This conference explicated the rationale as well as the whole process of the IQAS which were fully disseminated and clarified. Most of all, this conference formally launched the implementation of IQAS in SUCs all over the country.
