E-QUAL is the name of a four-year long international collaborative project that members of the CTEL team have been engaged in over the last 12 months. Its full title is ‘Enhancing quality, access and governance of undergraduate education in India’ and it has been the outcome of the College delegation initiatives that visited India in 2012 and has been funded under the ‘Support to Indo – European Interactions on Higher Education’ European initiative. The project overall co-ordinator is the British Council of India and the partnership consists of key Indian higher education institutions and two European partners: King’s College London and the University of Bologna.

2) supporting the governance and management of student learning through strengthening student participation; and
3) promoting the use of open source and technology enhanced educational resources in Indian universities to enable wider access to high quality undergraduate education. Continue reading
