      Programme design
      VLE/PLE

    • Why Professional Education?
      Blackboard customer group:
      “the e-Learning needs of corporations, the U.S. government, associations and for-profit education providers... fully engage employees and develop talent across your organizations”

    • Is it just Professional Education?
      Different motivations than compulsory education
      Different timescales, implications for:
      Pedagogy
      Instructional design
      Relationships
      Access to Blackboard
      However...
    • Ongoing relationships
    • Is it just Professional Education? (2)
      Overall, a lot of similarities
      Realism over idealism
      What is ‘employability’ and other questions outstanding
      Student preference
      FE has history of employer influence, HE different discipline requirements, PE influence of employers/accreditation
      Location and reputation still key
    • ‘Our’ solution
    • Student choice
      “Students learn differently and want choice. Such as paper or book, computer or internet, handout or VLE.”

    • Student choice (2)
      “The main way that students would like to be involved in shaping the content of the course is through providing feedback on the course design.”

    • Online/offline flexibility
      Topic focused:
      Guidance
      Support materials (inc. reading)
      ‘Lecture’ materials
      Test
      ‘Tutorial’ materials
      Further practice
    • Conclusion
      Anti-social okay?
      ‘Who you know not what you know’
      Constructivism
      Educational values
      Fee payer expectations
      Expect large amounts of directly relevant content, ‘for the money we pay‘
      Ultra competitive

      & in “Turning the anti-social...”
    • Q&A
      Is professional education a ‘breed apart’?
      Are ‘courses’ anti-social whereas professional events (such as user conferences), workshops, webinars social?
      What students really want [spoon feeding?], and what they should be encouraged to experience [new styles of learning /assessment, ePortfolios, etc.]. Is the approach described the ‘balance’ here?
