Richard Walker and Wayne Britcliffe will be presenting a framework for assuring quality in the delivery of distance learning courses to delegates at the Association for Learning Technology’s annual conference (10-12 September, Nottingham). The framework was developed by a working group of the University’s Distance Learning Forum and is available in hard copy format and in an interactive format as well, and has just been released by the University under a creative commons licence to the HE sector.

The development of the framework was informed by best practice guidance on QA standards for distance learning (QAQE SIG: 2011), addressing the specific dimensions of quality for the delivery of teaching, learning and assessment activities to distance learning students. The interactive web resource has been designed with links from the quality standards to exemplar evidence from existing distance learning programmes, enabling readers to view mini case examples of QA practice taken from a range of the University’s distance learning programmes.
