Developing a sustainable quality assurance process and implementing strategies systematically to achieve desired outcomes in online/distance education or blended learning can be challenging because there are many factors to consider and many obstacles to overcome. The “Continuum of Excellence” (CoE) Framework has been developed to guide institutions in reaching their strategic goals.

This session introduces a research-supported quality assurance process and the CoE Framework, developed by a leading US-based international quality assurance organization with over 1100  member institutions worldwide, that helps participants determine their institution’s current practices and what steps to takes to reach the next stage, and how to adapt and apply the research-supported quality assurance process and framework for their institutional change.
