Setting Standards, Maintaining Quality: Quality Assurance Policies for Open Schooling
For ODL to be successful and credible, and for learners to gain maximum benefit from it, it must be recognised as delivering consistently high-standard teaching and learning. That requires quality assurance (QA) and policies that lay out the standards to which an institution will adhere. This volume reflects the passion and expertise of a diverse range of people from different contexts, each of whom brought a unique perspective to the project. It expands COL’s repertoire of QA publications by adding the Open Schooling dimension. We hope that it will contribute substantially to enriching the quality of teaching and learning for the hundreds of thousands of current and potential learners throughout the Commonwealth.
