EMPOWERING the road to E-xcellence


THEME

This staff training will gather EADTU EMPOWER experts in a face to face setting, reflecting on the benchmarks of EADTU E-xcellence from each of their own fields of expertise (from all 12 fields of expertise covered by EMPOWER). The staff exchange program will focus on the excellence level of online education of all Empower fields of expertise. Participants are invited to reflect on the 35 benchmarks of the E-xcellence instrument, which are grouped into 6 chapters covering: strategic management, curriculum design, course design, course delivery, staff support and student support. The aim of the event is to generate a rich repository of good practice and expertise in direct relation to the benchmarks.


TOPICS

With input, we plan to generate a rich repository of good practice and expertise in direct relation to the benchmarks. Participants will be invited to present good practice and the latest research on the 12 topics from EMPOWER:

  1. Course design & curriculum development
  2. Knowledge resources
  3. Student support
  4. Assessment, examinations and certification
  5. Institutional support - ICT, media and educational support services
  6. Quality Assurance
  7. Policy and strategy development
  8. Blended Education
  9. International education
  10. Open & flexible education
  11. Continuing education & SLP's
  12. OERs & MOOCs

In addition, a group of E-xcellence experts and E-xcellence label owners will participate to bring forward their challenges and progress based on the E-xcellence instrument and their roadmap of improvement actions. Part of their input will also be an introduction to their identified challenges, E-xcellence support and how that was implemented.

As the number of topics to be covered is quite numerous, it is planned to have 2 staff training seminars of each 2-3 days. The outline of the training event will be structured as learning cafeés around the six E-xcellence chapters.

Results of the event and staff exchange programs will be captured in an EADTU Message (and/or report) that will support best practices in quality assurance of online and blended learning. It will enrich the EMPOWER program with the latest research, expertise and good practice, as well as it will improve the E-xcellence for further developments, and enhancements.
