QLT Standards for Online Learning

The CSU Quality Learning & Teaching (QLT) standards have been designed to facilitate student-centred practices within faculties to enhance the learning experience. Of the 12 Key Performance Indicators (KPIs), three relate specifically to the online environment: KPIs 9, 11 & 12.

  • KPI9: Students experience initial quality assured subject Interact 2 site landing pages and basic outline.
  • KPI11: Students will experience a subject that provides the opportunity for peer to peer interactions in the online space.
  • KPI12: Students will experience a subject that provides structured opportunity for staff to student interactions in the online space.

To support this work, a QLT (Online) Lead was allocated to each Faculty from 2016-2017 to provide feedback, advice and professional learning to academic staff related to the 3 online standards. This work resulted in the development of the QLT - Online support site for sharing practice related to the standards and online learning more generally.
