Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL) has become particularly relevant as the sector continues to manage its response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Blended learning, online delivery and alternatives to face-to-face assessment are now all part of the ‘new normal’ but what are the implications of these changes for quality assurance?
This webinar will focus on the digital learning environment and explore how institutions are adapting QA processes to ensure that quality is maintained.
If you would like to present a 7 -minute ‘Lightning Talk’ please contact email@example.com.
This webinar will take place via Zoom. A link will be sent out in the joining instructions.
The delegate booking system on the website is a little clunky which should hopefully be fixed soon. You have to register your name to add a delegate (which could be yourself), complete the delegate registration information and then scroll back down the page to submit your registration.

Universities tend to have standardised and well-trodden approaches to evaluating delivery. However, the complexities of the blended learning environment combined with the shifting sands of the COVID-19 pandemic have prompted a shift in the way we are gathering and evaluating evidence. This lightning talk looks at the multiple approaches being used to understand staff and student experience of blended delivery.
