Demonstrating Distance Education Quality: Common Principles across MSCHE, National Council for State Authorization Reciprocity Agreements (NC-SARA), and Quality Matters

October 12 at 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

In spring 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic supercharged the shift to distance education for organizations, institutions, and individuals. Rightfully, the public has been asking how accreditors, regulators, and organizations are ensuring the quality of distance education programs. Representatives from Middle States Commission on Higher Education (MSCHE), the National Council for State Authorization Reciprocity Agreements (NC-SARA), and Quality Matters will address their organizational approaches to quality assurance as it relates to distance education and the commonalities between the different organizations’ principles, standards, and guidelines. They will also look to the emerging trends in distance education quality assurance as key stakeholders such as students and regulatory bodies, inform the work that they do.
