Topic-Specific Quality Assurance Guidelines​

QQI has now published draft Topic-Specific Quality Assurance Guidelines for Blended Learning for public consultation.  These statutory QA guidelines supplement the Core Statutory QA Guidelines available here.


Topic-Specific Quality Assurance Guidelines for Blended Learning

An earlier version of this white paper was published for consultation as the White Paper on the Topic Specific QA Guidelines for Flexible Distributed Learning. Feedback received during the first consultation was extremely comprehensive and we would like to thank all those who provided feedback to date. Many issues raised by stakeholders referred to learning experiences but exclusively in the context of online.

This resulted in the decision to re-orientate and retitle the guidelines to the Topic-Specific Quality Assurance Guidelines for Blended Learning. It was also decided to develop a separate green paper to encourage discussion on the impact of online learning technology/digital capacity on teaching and learning within the existing education and training context. This is with a view to considering the necessity for a more comprehensive set of quality assurance guidelines on online learning. In the meantime, QQI would appreciate any further feedback on the draft QA guidelines for Blended Learning.

 The closing date for this consultation is has passed.
