Dearing discussions

August 1, 1997

The Dearing report (www.leeds. ncihe/) has provoked a number of online discussions and responses. The Association for Learning Technology's lively one-day virtual conference is now read-only at cube.bioc. Debate continues on Mailbase lists including ucisa-dearing, staff-development and seda, at www.mailbase.

There are reactions from the Higher Education Funding Council for England ( dearing.htm), the National Union of Students ( html) and the Staff and Educational Development Association (www.seda. ncihe.html).

Others are listed at misc/dearing_responses.html.

Even the University of Waterloo Daily Bulletin, Ontario, Canada noted the Dearing report ( bulletin/1997/jul/24th.html). The University of Manchester has responded at rylibweb.
