The benchmarking framework is a concept first proposed in April 2006 by Derek Morrison in a posting "Towards a generic framework for benchmarking e-Learning?" on the HE Academy e-benchmarking blog.

Readers are referred to this posting for the full argument but the gist of it seems to be that it would be useful if there was agreement on a number of general principles while not unduly restricting the freedom of institutions and the benchmarking consultants to take a variety of approaches towards benchmarking. In particular he proposed that the Student Learning Experience should be central.

Partly due to the operational pressures of the benchmarking pilot, ther has not been a lot of comment on this but contributions and comments were received from Mayes (and a later one}, Nicol and Bacsich.
