The Unit for Distance Education conducts operational research on an ongoing basis. This type of research usually has a short-term focus and the results are mainly used to inform management decisions and improve practice. The research covers all aspects of each programme and its methodology includes the analysis of statistical information, on-site visits by academic and non-academic staff members, and an analysis of evaluation forms and literature studies. However, some of the results and findings from the operational research are of such importance that the information is often reworked into conference papers and articles.
