This Quality Checklist is designed to support DCU’s commitment to providing all students with a transformative digital learning experience. The checklist is intended to be used alongside other quality assurance processes and guidelines to help enhance course design through critical self-reflection and formative peer review.
Benefit of this resource and how to make the best use of it
It focuses on individual modules and short courses in an online format rather than whole programmes, although the checklist may be useful in raising questions relevant to quality reviews. Importantly, the checklist does not attempt to cover the role of wider institutional support services and appropriate infrastructures, which are addressed in other already established benchmarking tools. The checklist is structured around six domains with ten guiding questions and a series of related design elements and specific self-reflective prompts.
