Prepare for Blended Delivery with RASE

RASE (Resources, Activities, Support and Evaluation) is a simple framework to assist in the development of online learning experiences. It is a particularly useful tool for mapping the online component of blended learning next term.

What is RASE?

RASE stands for Resources, Activities, Support and Evaluation. The RASE framework outlines the four dimensions of effective online learning spaces that enable students to meet learning outcomes.

  • Resources: content, materials, or tools students use to complete an activity
  • Activities: any active learning experience in which students develop understanding, test ideas, and apply knowledge.
  • Support: the pedagogical, administrative, and technical assistance tutors or peer groups perform in order to help students develop their learning and independence.
  • Evaluation: any formative or summative assessment of a student’s work by their tutor or their peers.
