Benchmarking in technology enhanced learning (TEL) is an important part of an institution’s ability to mediate quality in their practice. The Australasian Council of Online Distance and eLearning (ACODE) have facilitated two major Benchmarking Summits using benchmarks which integrate pedagogy with other institutional dimensions. In 2017 the Open University and ACODE facilitated the first UK Benchmarking Summit. After outlining the methodology and benchmarks this session will share the experiences of two institutions in undertaking self-assessments and participating in the summit. We will discuss the institutional value and impact and reflect on the overall challenges identified across UK and Australasian participants.
