The next EATING talk will take place on Thursday 19th February at 2.30 in the David Gorham Library (Venables N1015):
‘Quality Assurance methodology applicable to e-learning in Universities’
Keith has been working with OUVS colleagues on the EADTU managed E-xcellence project to develop a Quality Assurance methodology applicable to e-learning in Universities.
The project has developed Quality Criteria, an associated manual and Guidelines for Assessors. An online survey tool provides a Quickscan level of assessment and the materials will also support a peer review assessment methodology.
In the initial funding period the project team developed the methodology and trialled it in three institutions. In the current second phase of funding the trials have been extended to cover institutions in twelve countries in the EU more broadly.
Keith will introduce the methodology and tools, discuss the differing quality cultures encountered in the project and reflect on the experience of participating in a multi national project. If time permits, there may be an opportunity to ‘play’ with the Quickscan online. Please bring your laptop if you are interested in doing this.
All welcome. Refreshments provided.
