Internationalization of the higher education system in Israel has been defined as a high priority by the Council for Higher Education of Israel (CHE). To further this goal, CHE has supported Israeli higher education institutions to develop institutional strategies to promote internationalization. One of the main goals the CHE has set for internationalization is the enhancement of academic quality in Israel. The implementation of effective quality assurance mechanisms is essential to verify the success of internationalization efforts and can assist both CHE and higher education institutions to adapt their activities and plan strategically for the future.
Evaluation and quality assurance processes should be part of your strategic internationalization cycle:
Quality assessment of international activities differ from institution to institution. There is no "cookie cutter" formula as each institution focuses on different elements of internationalization, depending on their strategic targets, capacities and activities. In order to evaluate the quality of these activities and analyze their impact, it is crucial for the institution to set up an official, recognized institutional mechanism for the purpose of a comprehensive evaluation of the internationalization process.
Quality assurance processes are essential components not only for assessing the scope and success of internationalization within an institution but also for facilitating a methodical and evidence-based decision-making process. Quality assurance is also important for facilitating better information flow and communication between all relevant stakeholders.
