EADTU-ENQA Peer Learning Activity on QA of blended and online education

On 21-22 September, the EADTU-ENQA Peer Learning Activity (PLA) on Quality Assurance in blended and online education took place in Brussels. In this highly interactive event a total of  45 stakeholder representatives were brought together, coming  from 18 universities, 12 quality assurance agencies and 6 governments and umbrella organisations.  The stakeholders had a constructive dialogue towards awareness and new steps in the uptake of new modes of teaching. This PLA identified next steps in the development of blended and online degree and continuing education.

Eventually, the results of this PLA will contribute to the Bologna Follow up process and are foreseen to be introduced  to the council of Ministers meeting in Paris in 2018.
