TeSLA project: summary of the last quarter of 2018

AQU Catalunya participated in various events in the last quarter of 2018 to present the results and findings obtained so far in the TeSLA project. The first was at "The Online, Open and Flexible Higher Education Conference 2018", organised by the European Association of Distance Teaching Universities (EADTU) in Aarhus (Denmark) on 10, 11 and 12 October, where AQU Catalunya presented these results.

This was followed by the Agency's presentation on 8 November 2018 of the project in the webinar organised by the European Distance and E-learning Network (EDEN) within the context of the European Distance Learning Week. Also during the month of November, AQU Catalunya, in cooperation with ACPUA and the Catalan Open University (UOC), organised a series of workshop-round tables in Zaragoza and Barcelona on the 14th and 15th November respectively where the present and future of quality assessment and assurance in e-learning was discussed and where the facial recognition instrument of the TeSLA system was demonstrated. More information can be obtained from the following links: TeSLA-Zaragoza event/ TeSLA-Barcelona event. Following this, on 15, 16 and 17 November 2018, the 13th European Quality Assurance Forum (EQAF) under the theme "Broadening the scope of QA", was held in Vienna (Austria). AQU Catalunya presented an article in one of the plenary sessions on improvements to quality assurance in e-learning based on the findings of various rounds of pilot testing carried out in the TeSLA project.

Lastly, AQU Catalunya and its partners in the quality assurance working group, ENQA and EQANIE, continued to work on the Framework of e-assessment. This document will be the culmination of three years work within the framework of the project. In order to make progress towards this objective, a meeting with the Head Panel (a panel of external experts that has participated throughout all of the stages of the project) was held at AQU Catalunya on 17 December 2018, which dealt with the structure and content of the final document.
