Hellen van Berlo

Is the head of the department of educational development and quality assurance at LUCA School of Arts. We have a team of approximately 10 colleagues supporting our programmes. Hot topics are blended and online learning and assessment in art education. We support our teachers by organizing online and on campus workshops and organize on campus meeting-day LUCA-MEGA-MEeT: a day on which we share good practices, show new tools, ideas, projects to each other. The main purpose is to inspire all participants.

Our department is also responsible for the LUCA quality framework KOPERA. In Flanders each institution is entitled to develop its own quality methods. KOPERA stands for analyzing the quality of our programmes together with critical peers. Every year we organize several panel visits that monitor a programme based on 9 quality criteria, a portfolio of the programme and several campus visits. Joining FilmEU is a wonderful opportunity to share good practices in quality assurance and working jointly towards a solid quality assurance framework for FilmEU.
