Subsite Background

IICA-VTL Standards Project

To encourage wider adoption of virtual teaching and learning (VTL) and to facilitate more systematic collaborations among the eight UGC-funded universities, the UGC and the Quality Assurance Council introduced in 2021 a Special Grant for Strategic Development of Virtual Teaching and Learning, dedicated to inter-institutional collaborative (IICA) activities. The IICA Project “STANDARDS, SYNERGIES and SUPPORT - Establishing a shared Quality Assurance Framework and Standards for Online Learning and Teaching”, made up of a consortium of six participating universities led by Lingnan University (LU), with collaboration and funding from The University of Hong Kong (HKU), The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST) and City University of Hong Kong (CityU), and in-kind support from the Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) and the Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU), will work together to create a HK Quality Assurance Framework and Standards for Online Learning and Teaching and associated Quality Assurance of Online Learning and Teaching Toolkit /Resources.
