Supporting online learning through TEQSA partnership

Supporting online learning through TEQSA partnership

RMIT has partnered with the Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency (TEQSA) to deliver a six part online series designed to support education providers in the transition to online learning.

TEQSA is Australia’s independent national quality assurance and regulatory agency for higher education.

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the agency has focused on providing a suite of resources to support the shift to online learning and is partnering with RMIT to deliver a weekly webinar series titled Going online: R(e)imagining teaching and learning.

The six part series has been designed to engage the higher education sector in a discussion about best practice in online learning for institutions, teachers and students.

Each session delivers practical, real-time tips and insights into teaching and learning in an online learning environment.

The collaboration demonstrates RMIT’s ongoing commitment to high quality online learning and draws on the expertise of RMIT staff already demonstrating online teaching excellence.

Deputy Pro Vice-Chancellor Learning and Teaching in the College of Business and Law, Professor Claire Macken, is facilitating the sessions and said she was proud of RMIT’s relationship with TEQSA.

“It’s wonderful to see every week the number of questions from our audience, and it’s clear there is a deep interest in student learning, experience, assessment and engagement,” she said.

“It’s a privilege to be in the company of our expert panellists and to help so many colleagues right around the sector with these important topics.”

Chief Commissioner and Acting CEO of TESQA, Professor Nick Saunders AO, said he was grateful to RMIT for collaborating on the series.

“On behalf of everyone at TEQSA I would like to thank our colleagues at RMIT for their enthusiasm in working with TEQSA to create our first webinar series,” he said.

“A few sessions in we have consistently seen over 300 attendees and upwards of 60 questions from the audience, demonstrating a high level of engagement and a keen interest from the sector for practical advice on the transition to online learning.”

Two webinars have been held so far, with subsequent sessions to be held each Wednesday over the next four weeks.
