The first day of the Forum was filled with interesting reports from local experts and invited speakers of the Forum, who shared their experience in internal quality management, university management and student-centered education. Guests and participants of the Forum learned a lot from Petra Pistor’s presentation about moving from tools to a system – more than ten years of quality assurance at University of Duisburg-Essen, Michèle Wera on "The theory of relativity in quality assurance" and other interesting speakers of the Forum. A vivid example of the fact that the universities of Kazakhstan are in constant development and strive to introduce the experience of world leaders of higher education in their activities is the fact that representatives of domestic universities such as: Kazakh National Pedagogical University named after Abai, Zhetysu State University named after I. Zhansugurov , The Caspian State University of Technologies and Engineering named after Sh. Esenov and others, have the opportunity to present their experience in quality assurance of higher education and university management.
