 “The University makes good use of its strong and extensive expertise in the development and delivery of e-learning methods”

(QAA, Institutional Review, March 2013)

The Quality Assurance Agency conducted an Institutional Review of Glyndwr University in March 2013 and their report identified our use of e-learning as a strength.

The report states:

“The University provides a small but growing number of programmes that combine traditional, campus-based, face-to-face teaching with online learning and teaching through its virtual learning environment. The development of these programmes has been assisted by the Postgraduate Certificate in E-Learning. Specialist support is available from the CLTA, which offers staff development workshops in e-teaching and supports an informal network of those with skills and interests in e-teaching, some of whom have over 10 years of experience in the delivery of these programmes.” (Page 18)


“The review team concluded that the University’s good use of its strong and extensive expertise in the development and delivery of e-learning methods is a feature of good practice.” (Page 19)

The QAA Report is available at http://www.qaa.ac.uk/InstitutionReports/reports/Documents/RG1159GlyndwrE.pdf

Following demand from students completing the Postgraduate Certificate in E-learning, that programme has now been extended and enhanced to create the new MSc Learning and Technology which will welcome its first cohort in September 2013.

The MSc is delivered entirely online which enables students to study flexibly and at a time and place of their choosing.

Details of the MSc can be found at:
