    Abstract

    Attention shifted in recent years from design and implementation to use and usefulness of qual-ity assurance. Scientific studies focus increasingly on quality assurance’s impact on curricula and on individual teachers. Which (f)actors influence follow-up activities and what is their relation to improvement of education? One factor that we single out is teachers’ experience of quality assur-ance and how that influences the climate for quality work in higher education institutions, against the backdrop of the social context in which quality assurance was introduced. The paper critically analyses a number of studies on the topic.
