The University of Warwick is participating in an e-learning benchmarking exercise organised by the Higher Education Academy. From the Academy's benchmarking home page :-

The exercise has three aims:

  • to provide institutions with the information to make informed plans for future development
  • to allow institutions providing higher education to identify their current progress, on embedding e-learning, in relation to similar institutions
  • to provide a picture of the sector as a whole in order to identify areas of strategic importance to inform the work of the JISC, the Academy and the Funding Councils.

The other institutions participating in the exercise are:-

  • Coventry University and Warwickshire College
  • Institute of Education, University of London
  • Oxford Brookes University
  • Staffordshire University
  • University of Bristol
  • University of Chester
  • University of Hertfordshire
  • University of Leicester
  • University of Manchester
  • University of Strathclyde
  • University of Wales Institute, Cardiff

The participating institutions have been divided up into three groups, and each group has been assigned a consultant to facilitate the benchmarking. Our group contains:-

  • University of Warwick
  • Oxford Brookes University
  • Institute of Education
  • University of Coventry / Warwickshire College

and our consultant is Svava Bjarnason from the OBHE.

There's also a benchmarking blog provided by the HE Academy.
