Marketing Text The Compendium is an application guide of the QG. It is based on theoretical research and practical experiences in international educational cooperation and gives advice to typical problems as well as recommendations for quality assurance.
The compendium contains references to typical problems and recommendations for quality development and assurance derived from scientific research in and practical experience of transnational educational cooperation. It features a raft of management practice methods and tools, as well as useful aids for a systematic and goal-oriented approach. At the heart of this compendium is a comprehensive set of tables with additional information and supplements to the individual recommendations in the QUALITY GUIDELINES.
Chapter 2 describes the core elements of successful and mutually beneficial transnational educational cooperation, as well as the goals, tasks and scope of the QUALITY GUIDELINES. It also highlights the principles for collaboration, which represent a leitmotif of the QUALITY GUIDELINES and determine the nature of the cooperation.
Chapter 3 discusses in greater detail the relevant terms in ISO 29990:2010 and the QUALITY GUIDELINES.
Chapter 4 occupies a central position in the compendium. It presents the requirements of ISO29990:2010 and the recommendations of the QUALITY GUIDELINES in tabular form, along with the respective aids to their implementation. The requirements of the sector-specific quality management system and those concerning internationalisation are laid out in detail, recommendation by recommendation, for educational institutions. Also included are specific examples of application and practical tools.
Chapter 5 contains information on the quality requirements on sub-processes and process components of internationalisation and presents tools to aid compliance with these requirements. Section 5.1 of the chapter explains how the necessary processes can be identified and structured. Starting with the corporate vision, it focuses on the interlocking processes which occur in the implementation of the quality management system. Using a PDCA cycle as a basis, it sets out to explain the significance of analysis, planning, implementation and monitoring, alongside customisation and optimisation, in respect of the internationalisation of learning processes.Section 5.2 sets out the recommendations of the QUALITY GUIDELINES relating to the design of participatory and process-oriented quality management as an important prerequisite for the successful implementation of a quality management system in the context of internationalisation.
Chapter 6 sets out the requirements relating to the documentation of the quality management system and explains how to display options. The various possible forms of documentation for the individual recommendations of the QUALITY GUIDELINES are listed in a tabular overview. Another focus is on the representation of processes.
Chapter 7 provides cross references between the recommendations of the QUALITY GUIDELINES or, as the case may be, ISO 29990:2010, and ISO 9001:2008. These offer a straightforward way for educational institutions to match the recommendations of the QUALITY GUIDELINES to their quality management system, assuming, that is, that the latter has been developed in accordance with ISO 9001.
