A Generalizable Framework for Multi-Scale Auditing of Digital Learning Provision in Higher Education
Online Learning Volume 22, Number 2, ISSN 2472-5749
It is increasingly important that higher education institutions be able to audit and evaluate the scope and efficacy of their digital learning resources across various scales. To date there has been little effort to address this need for a validated, appropriate, and simple-to-execute method that will facilitate such an audit, whether it be at the scale of an individual program, department, faculty, or institution. The data are of increasing value to ensure institutions maintain progress and equity in the student experience as well as for deployment and interpretation of learning analytics. This study presents a generalizable framework for auditing digital learning provision in higher education curricula. The framework is contextualized using a case study in which the audit is conducted across a single faculty in a research-intensive UK university. This work provides academics and higher education administrators with key principles and considerations as well as example aims and outcomes.
