"...This does not mean the end of face-to-face learning, but hopefully a balanced blend of learning that’s more responsive to student and employer needs. This time, we are ready for a paradigm shift in how learning programmes are designed, delivered and assessed.

These area-based deliberations are set in a context of drastic cuts to the FE budget, so it’s important to remember that technology-enhanced blended learning is not a cheap option.

 

Any realignment of learning vision, leadership, culture, design, methodology, pedagogy and assessment may require upfront investment in infrastructure and human resources. But it has the potential to deliver long-term efficiencies by opening up opportunities to a greater number of learners – with a different paradigm for learning and a differently skilled workforce.

 

If we continue to mismatch inappropriate physical assets with inappropriate workforce skills, we are at risk of repeating earlier mistakes. If colleges are to avoid going the way of Comet and Woolworths, their leaders need to learn these lessons..."

Technology for employability: emerging themes and ideas | Jisc | eLearning tools | Scoop.it

FE and Skills Development and Resources Wiki - Funding released

Launched on Friday 17th February 2012, as part of a £1.4 million project, JISC Advance is seeking proposals to enhance or repurpose existing resources to be used in the FE and Skills sector across the UK. The focus for the programme is to improve the learner experience and increase efficiency and effectiveness of providers in line with the policies for the sector being led by each of the UK governments.

 

This opportunity is two-fold and offers sector providers and agencies the chance to:
apply existing resources (from JISC or elsewhere) to their work and adapt them for their needs
identify gaps in these resources and/or current uses made of technology in the sector and create new resources for use by other providers
An initial £450,000 will be available to adapt existing resources with a further £900,000 available for development projects to address any gaps.
