Measuring and Comparing Achievements of Learning Outcomes in Higher Education in Asia

May 22, 2023
12.00 AM - 12.00 AM

Measuring and Comparing Achievements of Learning Outcomes in Higher Education in Asia (CALOHEA) project unites thirty-one institutions across eight countries within ASEAN and five countries within Europe. The institutions create teams in the subject area of Civil Engineering, Medicine and Teacher Education. Together these teams form a Subject Area Group (SAG). 

The ASEAN University Network (AUN) acts as coordinator within the region, while the University of Groningen (RUG) is the project coordinator. Participating institutions were carefully selected over shared values and complementary expertise for maximum impact at institutional, national and regional levels.

This large-scale project addresses the issues faced by institutions in the South-East Asia (SEA) Region. It specifically focuses on internationalization and the 3 Key Recognition Mechanisms (RMs):

  • RM1: Creation and use of Regional Subject-Specific Qualifications and Assessment Reference Frameworks to permit greater comparability of institutional degree programme profiles.
  • RM2: Instalment of the culture of Student Workload Measurement as an integral part of curriculum design.
  • RM3: Implementation of Authentic Assessment of internationally comparable Learning Outcomes in degree programmes.

In the framework of the CALOHEA Erasmus+ project co-funded by the European Union, representatives of the Faculty of Medicine, Universiti Malaya, Kuala Lumpur will take part in the first National Dissemination Meeting in Universiti Teknologi Malaysia on 22-23 May 2023. 

The university is represented by two Subject Area Groups – Medicine and Civil Engineering. For the Medicine Subject Area Group, the researchers are as follows:
