Format: Presentations and discussion

Introduction: In this webinar we will discuss quality issues in open, online and technology enhanced learning. Taking into account new developments and new challenges for education in the next decades, we need to reconsider the concept and methods of quality assurance, and even rethink the whole quality culture in open, online and technology enhanced learning. In this webinar we will discuss what quality means, what it entails to install a quality culture and how we can assure quality levels when  the learner takes the control of his or her learning in a global learning environment. Five presenters will give their perspective on quality issues, and discuss with the audience how quality improvement will affect the future of open, online and technology enhanced learning.
