Merging of a few of the Performance Indicators Addition of a couple
of new ones. One around on how institutions are dealing with new
and emerging technologies. How they plan and fund them, an
innovation pipeline. One around how institutions are managing their
relationships with external providers of core systems and services.
One around BYOD and service expectations. One around institutions
adopting an e-learning framework or standards, at a course level,
so as to meet reporting obligations to national quality agencies.
6. The beauty of the beast The new Benchmarks shift the emphasis to
technology enhanced learning, rather than it being on e-learning.
The beautify of benchmarking is not in which tool or set of
standards are used, it's about the dialogue that emerges and the
sharing of practice that is the real winner for all concerned. It
opens the door for further collaboration. It serves as a mechanism
to facilitate discussion at senior leadership level. Yes you could
use any tool, but we already have a well-established community of
practice in ACODE so we go with our strengths 7. Those involved 8.
ACODE Inter-Institutional Benchmarking Summit Universities
benchmarking their capacity in technology enhanced learning. 1-3
June 2014 Hosted by Macquarie University Sydney Australia. Two day
intensive where universities have self- assessed their capacity in
technology enhanced learning, using the New ACODE Benchmarks, and
are then willing to share their practice and learn from others.
