Applications are invited for institutions to work with the QAQE E-learning Toolkit and produce a case study. Up to 4 awards of £1,000 will be made.
We are looking for a diverse set of case studies that explore how the use of the toolkit can support or enhance existing institutional processes, and identify ways in which the current toolkit draft can be developed.
Proposals should specify:
Why their institutional context would be an interesting one in which to apply the toolkit;
The team’s areas of expertise in relation to quality and e-learning;
The focus, scope and timeline of the case study being proposed.
Proposals should be no more than 1,000 words, and should be emailed to Martin Oliver (firstname.lastname@example.org) by January 31st 2011.
All funded case studies will be expected to report on their case study with a short written report and through a presentation at the June 14th conference (QAQE in e-learning conference at University of Hertfordshire). Payments will be made on receipt of the written report and scheduling of the conference presentation, and will be subject to sign-off by the SIG organising committee. A series of indicative headings will be provided for the written reports; there is no maximum word length for these, although around 3,000-5,000 words is suggested.
Update: Apologies to our overseas members, butdue to the conditions of the QAQE SIG’s funding, only projects based in the UK are eligible for these awards. We are still however interested in working with overseas partners who wish to use the toolkit.
