FaBoTo II stands for “Facilitating the use of Bologna Tools for HEIs and Quality Assurance Organisations II ”. It is the continuation of FaBoTo I, a project targeted to offer support and counselling regarding the implementation of the main Bologna instruments to both Dutch HEIs and Quality Assurance Organisations. Although the main elements of the Bologna agenda are implemented in The Netherlands, there are still items that require attention, especially in the field of transparency. This concerns the information on educational programmes; defining, assessing and demonstrating the achievement of learning outcomes and the use of the Diploma Supplement. Another important item is the cooperation of Dutch HEIs with education institutions in other countries, for the purpose of developing joint programmes. The expected results of FaBoTo II are: a broad national Bologna network of representatives of HEIs, training sessions about the key Bologna tools. Furthermore, the project will continue the dialogue between different educational fields (HE and VET sector) and expand the contacts to the ICT providers for HE. Finally, FaBoTo II will also support the development of joint programmes by organizing a training seminar for Dutch HEIs and an international Peer learning meeting for HEIs and Quality Assurance organizations about the European Quality Approach for Joint programmes.The impact of FaBoTo II is expected to be threefold: 1) accelerate the implementation of the European Approach for Quality Assurance of Joint Programmes by identifying good practice, challenges and solutions, 2) Dutch HEIs experience added value of joint programmes needed to lead a higher participation rate 3) Strengthened EHEA through the qualitative better implementation of Bologna tools in Dutch HEIs.
