Asia-Pacific region. Guidelines for the quality assurance of TVET qualifications in the Asia-Pacific region
The overall aim of these guidelines is to propose principles and indicators that can assist Member States in optimizing their quality assurance
mechanisms for qualifications achieved through TVET. They provide a framework for documenting, developing, monitoring, evaluating and
improving the currency and comparability of certificates, diplomas or degrees in TVET.
The handbook is meant to guide VET providers through a quality journey, based on the PDCA (plan-do-check-act/review) cycle, which underlies any quality management system (QMS). The handbook’s guidelines, advice and practical examples are taken from 20 providers of initial, continuing or sector-based vocational training, all of which have successful and mature quality management in place.
Through 12 informative chapters, the book answers your questions and provides helpful guidance and suggestions on a host of topics including:
– How do I decide whether my courses should be campus-based, blended or fully online?
– What strategies work best when teaching in a technology-rich environment? What methods of teaching are most effective for blended and online classes?
– How do I make choices among all the available media, whether text, audio, video, computer, or social media, in order to benefit my students and my subject?
– How do I maintain quality of teaching, learning, and resources in a rapidly changing learning environment?
– What are the real possibilities for teaching and learning using MOOCs, OERS, open textbooks?
The book examines the underlying principles that guide effective teaching in an age when everyone, and in particular the students we are teaching, are using technology.
This document provides a set of guidelines designed to support decision making about the sorts of quality measures that are appropriate in different contexts. These MOOC Quality Guidelines can be used by governments, accreditation agencies, institutions and learners with an interest in developing, running, accrediting or participating in MOOCs, to improve quality assurance (QA) and accreditation.
