ULAB Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning (CETL) and General Education Department (GED) jointly organized a seminar on ‘Global University Rankings and Implications for Quality Assurance’ on 23 February 2020 at the permanent campus. The seminar was conducted by Dr. Riyad A. Shahjahan, Associate Professor of Higher Education at Michigan State University. Quality Assurance (QA) has become an important policy issue, institutional practice and a concern for study in the field of higher education. Institutions are looking for various tools to ensure and demonstrate quality in both their inputs and outputs. The role of QA in the global competition fetish of higher education institutions can no longer be ignored. Within this context, this talk interrogated the growing role of global QA practices and critically probed into the underlying assumptions of such practices in a globalized context. Dr. Mohammad Tareque Rahman, Associate Professor and Director CETL, Professor Imran Rahman, Dean ULAB School of Business and about fifteen other academics from different departments of ULAB participated in this seminar.
