ASIIN in cooperation with Ho Chi Minh City University of Technology (HCMUT)


ASIIN, in collaboration with Ho Chi Minh City University of Technology (HCMUT), will delve into multifaceted themes designed to enrich the landscape of higher education and economic collaboration, fostering academic and professional exchange within and between Vietnam and Germany. Over the course of two days, this state of the art conference will address a range of “hot topics”, which are currently high on the Vietnamese and International QA agendas.

In the opening session, we together will explore the use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in all aspects of higher education. European and Vietnamese Experts will discuss the opportunities and challenges posed by AI sharing global best practices, addressing the incorporation of AI into Teaching and learning, research and HE administration.

Session 2 will be devoted to the topic of internationalization and present successful examples of international collaboration in higher education and regarding the provision of skilled workers for the countries´ economies. We will jointly highlight the possibilities for higher education exchange between Germany and Vietnam, also probing into issues such as how to initiate Joint International Study Programs and presenting strategies on how to modernize study programs in their quest for meeting international standards. Successful institutions will share their best practices, the German Academic Exchange Council will present the range of opportunities available to Vietnamese higher education institutions, and representatives of Foreign Trade associations will focus on the benefits of professional mobility.

Session 3 will address the topic of international rankings and the reasons they are of relevance to the Vietnamese and German Higher Education Sector. Representatives of international Ranking Organizations will deliver insightful presentations on where Vietnam and Germany currently stand.

Session 4 at the opening of day 2 will present best practice examples from both Vietnam and Germany on how to institutionalize modern management systems in higher education and how to implement successful features of institutional autonomy.

The conference, in its final session, will end with an exploration of ASIIN's unique capacity building and quality enhancement portfolio. Participants in the first session will learn about ASIIN’s innovative Global University Network of Excellence (AGUNE) and the new ASIIN Academy as platform for a variety of courses and workshops serving the professional development of staff members of Universities and QA Agencies. We will present the potential of ASIIN’s institutional “maturity model”, program accreditations based on international quality seals as well as certification of continuous professional development courses. This final part sets the stage for a comprehensive understanding of quality assurance and international benchmarks.

On conclusion of the conference, certificates of attendance will be issued to participants. Throughout the conference, there will be networking opportunities abound, fostering connections among academia, accreditation bodies, and educational institutions. In addition, ASIIN staff members will be at the disposal of representatives of all Vietnamese Higher Education Sector that are currently in the process of preparing for an ASIIN accreditation procedure or interested in such a procedure.


The agenda will include presentations and forum discussions that will stimulate in-depth discussions between the participants.
