Common Framework for Online Education

The Common Framework for Online Education is a pragmatic response to the University's priority to move at least a proportion of our education online for the academic year 20/21, in response to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Drawing from the evidence of what is known about effective online learning, from national quality frameworks, as well as from the experience and expertise that exists within the University, this Framework draws from a series of principles, design elements and lenses whose purpose is to enable all programmes to respond to the current context with confidence and competence.
