Our paper describes the Nordic project ‘Quality Assurance in Higher Education’. The main goal of the project is to develop and implement a self-evaluation model in the participating Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) to support their quality assurance work and continuous curriculum development in the field of engineering. The framework of development is the CDIO self-evaluation model. In this freestyle session we will introduce our results and challenge the audience to evaluate our work with clickers. At the same time we disseminate the project achievements and hopefully provide new ideas and support for quality assurance work on other higher education institutes.
