2010 CRC Showcase - Workforce Development - E-learning for Rail P4.110

  1. 1. Scoping the potential for e-learning in rail (P4.108 – complete) Collaborative e-learning for rail (P4.110 – commencing 1/10/10) Dr Karen Becker, QUT Julie Fleming, CQUniversity Dr Kieren Jamieson, CQUniversity Dr Sukie Sawang, QUT Dr Cameron Newton, QUT Established and Supported under Australia’s Cooperative Research Centres Programme
  2. 2. National partnership
  3. 3. SCOPING THE POTENTIAL FOR E-LEARNING IN RAIL (P4.108 – COMPLETE)
  4. 4. Scoping study Aim: To scope different approaches to e-learning, both outside and inside the rail industry
  5. 5. Case study Ten case study organisations  How is e-learning being used?  How effective is e-learning?  What enables e-learning and what are the barriers?  What can rail organisations learn from other sectors?
  6. 6. Research framework Industry/national context Organisational context Learning and development context Individual employee context
  7. 7. Key implications: Industry/national context  Opportunities to share e-learning programs within the industry  Explore the establishment of a “learning objects repository” and e-learning forums  Shared understanding about technologies
  8. 8. Key implications: Organisational context  Raising awareness and educating decisions makers on e-learning  Articulating the benefits of e- learning  Recognise the potential for linking e-learning with EIS  Access to advice about forms of e-learning
  9. 9. Key implications: L&D context  Access to networking and information sharing opportunities  Virtual networking  Models of approaches to e- learning to guide decision makers  Link L&D groups with HRD  Specialised staff  Evaluation of e-learning
  10. 10. Key implications: Individual employee context More robust data on:  Extent of IT knowledge of potential learners  Learner preferences and what influences these preferences  Perception of e-learning from employer and employee perspective
  11. 11. Overall conclusion -1- The industry stands to gain a great deal from taking a more collaborative approach to the use and adoption of e-learning.
  12. 12. Overall conclusion -2- There is a need for: 1. Improved data on workforce capability 2. Data on perceptions of e-learning 3. Identification of ways to hare e-learning resources 4. Identification of the most appropriate technologies 5. Identification of ways to share existing knowledge and skills 6. Documentation of clear models 7. Specific emphasis on identifying appropriate methods of e-learning
  13. 13. COLLABORATIVE E-LEARNING FOR RAIL (P4.110 – COMMENCING 1/10/10)
  14. 14. E-learning for rail The aim:  Provide a validated measure of abilities and attitudes relating to e- learning (readiness)  Provide a detailed analysis of current e-learning technology and usage best practice  Develop specifications for shared e- learning resource  Pilot an e-learning object
  15. 15. The intended outcomes  Sharing of costs of development and implementation of e-learning  Access to industry-specific information on e-learning skills and attitudes  Establish a shared collective knowledge, expertise and resources
  16. 16. Research methodology 1. An e-learning climate and aptitudes survey 2. Ongoing scanning and collection of external e-learning technology and resources 3. Portal intervention 4. Collaborative learning trial
  17. 17. Thank you. Questions/comments?
