    Abstract

    In this paper, ten principles for evaluating blended teaching and learning in an age of Covid-19 (Austen,2020)are discussed with specific suggestions for academic practice/practitioners; evaluation strategy, student involvement, rationale for change, comparisons, data types, standards of evidence, indicators of success, evaluation research, review, resource, and capacity. The initial reflections (July 2020) focused on supporting the higher education sector with institution-wide evaluations, as this was the strategic and regulatory pressure at that time. However, institutional evaluations are only possible if they are informed by a local evidence base. In this opinion piece, the ten evaluative principles are reframed to encourage evaluative thinking by academic practitioners, and particularly those defined as early adopters. This piece encourages institutions and practitioners to reframe an emphasis on evaluation methods into a critical space of evaluative thinking while appreciating the contingent factors of their institution and its stakeholders
