Abstract

Technology enhanced learning (TEL) has been one of the instruments used to propel the massification and the internationalisation of course offerings by higher education institutions (HEIs). Accordingly, The Australasian Council on Open Distance and E-learning (ACODE) recently undertook a robust review of their 8 TEL benchmarks to ensure their sustainability. The Benchmarks provide HEIs with chance to self-evaluate against a suite of proven Performance Indicators (PIs) to determine their strengths and challenges in TEL delivery. In part this is to help inform Australia's Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency (TEQSA) in the compilation of its teaching and learning standards, by providing a more granular level definition of good TEL practice. This poster presents a summary of: the benchmarks used, how they were applied, the results of that activity, and it proposes a potential expansion of the benchmarking methodology. Why? To better assure student engagement in a TEL.
