AoC Beacon Awards 2014-15 prospectus - Jisc Award for Effective Use of Technology in FE

  1. 1. Who are we? Jisc is the UK’s expert on digital technologies for all post-16 education and research. We innovate for the sector while driving down costs through shared services and digital content. We know what matters to you and we work with you to tackle those challenges. Our vision is to make the UK the most digitally advanced education and research nation in the world. We’ve got the digital content you need and your learners want. Through our bulk buying and negotiating power, we’ve opened up a wealth of online resources for FE learners and staff: journals, books, full text databases, digital images, online film and many more digital resources. We offer hands-on, local, practical support. We can help by showing you new approaches, enabling learners to learn independently, staff to support them effectively and the whole college to operate more efficiently. We can help you do more, and better, with less in an increasingly competitive marketplace. And we’ve got one of the world’s fastest and most efficient networks, Janet saves users at least 25% over similar commercial products with added extras - which save you even more money – including network security and expertise. Visit us at www.jisc.ac.uk to find what we can do for you. The Awards 10 Further education - serving the needs of a better society and strong economy
  2. 2. 10 The award is open to all further education, sixth form and tertiary colleges in the UK. This award aims to recognise where the effective use of technology has had a significant impact on learning and resulted in a more efficient implementation of the curriculum through innovative approaches to teaching. The assessors will be looking for applications which demonstrate how new models of delivery can have significant impact on both learners and the college workforce, whether e-delivery has been used across the institutional or in specific curriculum areas. Assessors will look for comprehensive evidence (including statistical information and digital evidence) which clearly demonstrates the following: • innovative use of technology contributing to the development of the curriculum to meet the needs of the community the college serves • effective implementation of new models of e-delivery enhancing the learning experience and resulting in a significant increase in learner achievement and other outcomes • the use of technology which has resulted in the improvement in the quality of teaching and enriched the curriculum • effective use of technology which is built into the development of increased organisational efficiency and has achieved significant quantified savings, in business processes and delivery of learning and other services, and/or released time and money • effective leadership that promotes and sustains the wider use of technology to support learning and institutional development.
