Self-Evaluation of Quality in Technology-enhanced Learning
Start date: Nov 1, 2009,

SEVAQ+ aims to engage in wide-reaching dissemination and exploitation of the results of a Leonardo da Vinci pilot project (2005-2007): the SEVAQ tool and concept for the Self-Evaluation of Quality in eLearning. Technology-enhanced learning is developing in diverse forms in Higher Education (HE) and Vocational Educational Training (VET) across Europe, reflecting the complex interrelation between cultures and education. As Ehlers states in the SEVAQ handbook: “…overarching approaches and strategies are needed in order to develop quality in a holistic way, taking into account organisational contexts and stakeholders in a participatory way.” The original SEVAQ project merged two widely recognised evaluation and quality approaches – the Kirkpatrick and European Foundation for Quality Management models - to produce a dynamic, multilingual tool for the generation of learner-centred self-evaluation questionnaires. SEVAQ has great potential to support quality assurance in technology-enhanced learning, pinpointing areas for improvement, tracking evolution and enabling benchmarking. Yet market research clearly shows the need for a 360° evaluation, identifying widespread recognition and certification as critical success factors for the extensive take-up of SEVAQ. To achieve this, 3 of the original members have joined forces with 2 new partners and 2 solidly implanted European networks, EDEN and EFQUEL. The tool and concept will be extended to new stakeholder groups and localised in 3 additional languages (DE, IT and PL) with a focus on interculturality. SEVAQ+ aims to reach a critical mass of 5000 users in HE and VET, mobilising partner and associate networks to disseminate results through a judicious mix of events, publications and social networking, involving stakeholders and experts in the dual evaluation cycle of extensive user feedback and online Delphi consensus to carry SEVAQ+ through to certification, and contributing to policy via a widely-circulated white paper.
