IIEP distance education course receives quality certification

15 July 2016

The IIEP-UNESCO online course transparency, accountability and anti-corruption measures in education has been awarded with an official seal of quality, marking the third course from the Institute’s Virtual Campus to receive special recognition.

The course, in both French and English, received the endorsement from Quality Matters, a faculty-centered, peer review process designed to certify the quality of online courses and online components. Previously, ECBCheck awarded IIEP’s distance education courses on planning for conflict and disaster risk reduction and external quality assurance in higher education with a quality certificate. 

IIEP’s course on anti-corruption measures in education is aimed at strengthening the skills of participants in assessing corruption risks and in designing adequate tools and strategies to address the lack of transparency and accountability in the education sector.

This course will be held again in French from 24 October to 9 December 2016. Applications are due by 25 July 2016.

The course targets country teams composed of planners and administrators from ministries of education in developing countries worldwide. Individual applications from representatives of anti-corruption commissions, inspection/audit agencies, CSOs and donor agencies are also accepted. It relies on an interactive and practice-oriented learning approach. Throughout the course, country teams are asked to prepare a project proposal, which will allow them to directly apply the skills acquired.
