New ways of learning - HEPI

New ways of learning - HEPI | Digital technology and Higher Education | Scoop.it
This guest blog has been kindly provided by Professor Neil Morris, who is the Director of Digital Learning at the University of Leeds. An A-level student seeking to get a head start on their UCAS application. A current undergraduate wanting to study a specific topic with a leading academic at a different university. A recent graduate looking to get a foot in the door of a career that doesn’t directly relate to their degree subject.

The initiative will bring two distinct benefits. The first is flexibility. Those that could benefit will include people who do not want to gain a full higher education qualification, but may only need individual elements of a particular degree to achieve their goals or access employment in their chosen field. Some others may want to study for a degree, but over a longer period than the traditional three …
