ENQA Workshop on QA and E-Learning seminar

Barcelona, Spain

Hosted by:

In cooperation with AQU Catalunya, hosted by the Open University of Catalunya

Context:

The implementation of new technologies in the sector of higher education is a growing phenomenon in Europe. More and more programmes are delivered entirely, or in part, through e-learning. The use of modern technologies in teaching and learning creates new opportunities, opens up new challenges, and may pose new kinds of risks – some of these yet unknown or under-explored.

The impacts and benefits of the use of IT in teaching and learning and the consequences for the quality of the student experience are not simple to determine and measure, and the adaptability of the current quality assurance measures and criteria of programmes delivered entirely or in part via online methods, for example, are questions that QA agencies need to think about and find innovative solutions to.

Thus, the growth of e-learning in higher education opens new debates, which are of great relevance to QA agencies: management of diversity, competition and internationalisation, the concepts of quality, and even the sustainability of the existing structures in higher education. The ENQA workshop aims to stimulate an observation to this new environment with cooperation from the stakeholders.

Concept:

The aim of this seminar is:

  1. To start a discussion on QA of e-learning in the ENQA community
  2. To present good practice
  3. To encourage QA agencies to reflect on their future plans for QA on e-learning
  4. To reflect on the challenges of an open education that is provided beyond national borders and how national QA agencies should deal with the quality of this provision

The event will be composed of plenary sessions and working groups, to ensure a high degree of interactivity. The event is targeted mainly to European QA agencies, although institutional representatives, e-learning experts, and students are also welcome to participate and will be invited to contribute to the event.

Fee: € 220
