ACTIONS from the last meeting
Wayne: to contact Alberta eCampus for access to the quality documentation and toolkit eCampusAlberta site no longer exists, but traced a snapshot of the quality tools via the Internet Archive Wayback machine.
Wayne: to determine if there are linkages between this work and that undertaken by the OERu Curriculum & Planning Group.
Note: all members have agreed to use the Quality Review Project website, the chat.oeru.org tool, and the OERu Community tool to support open and transparent planning processes and accountable communication. In addition, all future meetings of this group will be recorded to become part of this record.
PLEASE NOTE: these represent 'rough notes' from the meeting and will be 'tidied up' in the days follwoing this meeting. The same applies to the Actions list below.

Audience as consideration for quality indicator, lack of current data to support student experience, role of student evaluation tool and possibly designing one (is this part of our remit?), set learning activities that capture that information, include demographic information (educational experiences), full evaluation of courses done formally, need access to current data.
