  3. 3. Expectations: students 3 “I expect college to provide free access to a range of digital devices, services and software. I want to be using the software I’ll need at work.” “I want support in moving beyond the basic functions of software and systems, and using things effectively” “Ask us what we need - we might just surprise you. I don’t feel the college genuinely engages us in decisions about technology” “I want teachers who are digitally skilled, confident, and willing to hand over control to us to use familiar technologies in class” “I expect modern, easy to find learning resources. How about making screencasts or videos available on theVLE?”
  4. 4. Perspectives: teaching staff » Goals: › Learner engagement › Learner retention and achievement › High-quality learning resources and activities for use in classroom and homework » Barriers: › Short on time to find and review resources › Largely thinking of traditional face to face teaching models › Not sure what’s possible; how the online learning would be designed and delivered 4 “We use resources from all over the place – some that we’ve created, some free, and some content that the college has paid for.” “I want engaging content and activities that I can give to learners for homework, revision, or to use to cover staff illness”
  5. 5. Perspectives: e-learning managers » Challenges: › FELTAG suggests the sector moves 10% of guided learning hours online – who will create the content? › Motivating and supporting staff in moving to a blended model – developing digital capability and an awareness of the need and the opportunities › Customising – supporting individual staff linked to specific curricula and student requirements › Making time and space for e-learning development and providing flexible training models › Variable access to in-house digital support and expertise › Lots of content but how best to evaluate, navigate, use and keep current? › Staff digital skills, confidence, aspiration and buy-in 5
