HEQCO study examines cross-disciplinary development of online resources

June 11, 2015

A new report published by the Higher Education Quality Council of Ontario (HEQCO) looks at OCAD University’s efforts to bring faculty from various disciplines in its School of Design together to develop online learning resources. According to the report, faculty members participating in the initiative were exposed to new teaching strategies; however, the response to the online resources they produced was mixed. Integration of the online modules was inconsistent, and some faculty and students complained about the quality of the content. The authors of the report suggest that clear guidelines for the development and integration of online resources will be critical for future success. HEQCO Summary | Full Report
