Ms. Susanna Lee
Ms. Susanna Lee has over 20 years management and teaching experience in tertiary and arts education. Over the past 9 years, she was engaged by a statutory quality assurance authority to head the Research, Consultancy and Training functional area. Major projects under her leadership included Comparative Study of Veterinary Qualifications, development and review of quality assurance model that underpins the Hong Kong Qualifications Framework (HKQF), moderation of industry competency standards, knowledge management, credential recognition, technical feasibility of aligning trade tests under the HKQF, etc.
The study targets cover the higher education sector and the vocational education and training sector in HK; and the education systems, accreditation and recognition systems and higher education institutions of various areas including the People’s Republic of China, Taiwan, Europe, the United Kingdom and the United States of America.
She is leading another major consultancy project for the Government of the Macao Special Administrative Region to underpin its new quality assurance system for higher education. The project covers the development of Generic Outcomes Standards, Qualifications Descriptors, and manuals for accreditation and quality audit at institutional and programme levels.
Ms. Lee contributed to the development of a unit of the Quality Assurance Graduate Programme for the International Network for Quality Assurance Agencies in Higher Education (INQAAHE). The graduate programme is now converted into an online Graduate Certificate in Quality Assurance of The University of Melbourne. She also contributed to the publication of the Handbook on Good Practices in Quality Assurance for the Sub-degree Sector in 2009 as a member of the relevant Expert Group. The INQAAHE accepted the collaboration among the policy bureau and QA bodies to promote QA culture in HK as a good practice in June 2012 for entry into its good practice database for access by members.
Being the developer of the model of non-local programme accreditation, which was the first of its kind launched in Hong Kong in 2009 to underpin the HKQF, she shared the celebration of the recognition of the model through the APQN Quality Award (2013) in International Focus. As the founding head of the functional unit of Research, Consultancy and Training, she is also honoured to receive the APQN Quality Award (2014) in Training and Support of Reviewers on behalf of the organisation that she served.
