ENQA launches e-learning working group

4 July 2016

ENQA has announced the launch of a Working Group on e-learning which aims to address the challenges associated with the alternative learning and teaching methods that ICT creates by exploring and sharing the ways in which QA agencies have begun to conduct themselves in this area. ENQA’s attention to this issue follows considerable urging from participants at its 2015 workshop in Barcelona and recommendations from stakeholders in the e-learning community, while contributing to one of the six priorities within the strategic framework for European cooperation in Education and Training (ET2020), adopted at the November 2015 Education Council.

The ENQA Working Group on e-learning will be formed from among the expressions of interest (due by 31 July 2016), with particular consideration given to the members’ amount of expertise and/or experience with regard to the quality assurance of e-learning (a point which should therefore be elaborated in the expression of interest). More detailed information about the working group launch is available here.

The launch of the ENQA Working Group on e-learning coincides with the conclusion of its Working Group on impact, the work of which was finished with the completion of the final report, published in May.
