Quality in Learning and Teaching
The University is committed to enriching learning opportunities for students through the provision of blended learning resources and activities. The University's commitment to consistency and quality of blended learning sites is expressed through the innovative Blended Learning Quality Framework which is currently being implemented by Schools, with support from the Learning and Teaching Unit. The Blended Learning Quality Framework guides academic staff through an evaluative process of their online sites, helping them to develop enhanced skills in both the technical and pedagogical aspects of online learning and teaching. The Basic Standards (PDF, 223.63 KB) (opens in a new window) focus on technological and design aspects, whereas the Advanced Standards (PDF, 299.9 KB) (opens in a new window) are explicitly pedagogical.
The University is committed to excellence in teaching practice through continuing professional development for full-time, part-time and sessional staff.
