The internal evaluation of Hydro-Asia Quality Assurance aims to outline the general quality assessment of the intensive research program and to measure the degree of satisfaction of all stakeholders.
Throughout the programme, the three partner institutions share their knowledge and skills in different domains related to water management and engineering: mathematical formulation of physics and hydraulics, insight in physics of rivers, experience with field surveys, hydrological and hydraulic modelling, hydroinformatics, numerical simulations, river engineering, sediment transport, river morphological behaviour... Hydro-Asia Quality Assurance process will determine the degree of adequacy of the formation with regard to the two main objectives:
- The practice and technical control of hydrological and hydraulic modelling tools and methods on a real-life case;
- The use of web-based collaborative engineering, in response to professional needs in relation with floods and engineering works.
The Self-Assessment Process
The evaluation of Hydro-Asia program will be launched at the end of the face-to-face meeting. All stakeholders - Students, Teaching Staff, Lecturers, Coordinators of Asian institutions, Public Authorities - will be requested to describe their self-assessment of the program. Each participant will be invited to express his/her own judgment in a free way by filling up a form comprising eight items to be evaluated (max. 100 words for each item). The blank versions of the forms are appended to the present page.
Dissemination of the Evaluation Report
According to the pre-defined items of the questionnaires, a detailed approach of each considered item will be described in reports by Advisors/External Experts. The conclusions of the evaluation process will suggest recommendations, proposals and actions to be taken for the improvement of the program with regard to organizational/logistic issues, the academic program, teaching contents/tools, the collaborative enginering experience. The Quality Assurance final report will be available on the platform, and will constitute the pre-requisites for the next session of Hydro-Asia program.
