Suddaby, Gordon; Milne, John
Campus-Wide Information Systems, v25 n2 p114-122 2008
Purpose: The paper aims to discusses two complementary initiatives focussed on developing and implementing e-learning guidelines to support good pedagogy in e-learning practice. Design/methodology/approach: The first initiative is the development of a coherent set of open access e-learning guidelines for the New Zealand tertiary sector. The second project, arising from the e-learning guidelines project, will implement selected guidelines in 18 tertiary institutions and evaluate the implementation processes and the outcomes. Findings: The guidelines provide a framework for good pedagogical practice that supports quality e-learning activity and engages staff in critically reflecting on e-learning practice. The paper describes how e-learning quality guidelines contribute to enhanced pedagogical quality, greater collaboration, and an approach that is focused on the learner. Practical implications: Institutions need to provide motivation, support and resources to successfully implement e-learning guidelines. Originality/value: The paper describes an innovative approach to collaborating on improving e-learning quality and coherence across a national tertiary education system.
