 Create a  course for practitioners in the post 16 sector.

 A working model that is relevant to curriculum areas in the F.E sector- innovative yet at the same time deals  with  the changing landscape and  demands within the sector such as changes to funding, intake of 14 -19 year old learners and so on.

Elisabetta do you mean that the teaching practitioners are to be participants in the course? Would you be producting a working model for FE teachers to use and adapt to their own curricula? And that it would be a working model of an innovative and responsive curriculum?

Absolutely!  Those are the main ideas though I do not quite envisage quite what yet!  I am hoping a team will come together to firm this idea up

On further reflection- it could be a course for F.E practitioners( and management) looking at aspects  of a 'new curriculum delivery approach'.With reduction in funding   there is a real risk that learners do  handouts ( either paper or digital) with no teacher present under the heading of timetabled virtual learning .  

How can we plan for creative, interactive and independent learning yet with real personalised support.  What about the learners and the teachers? The challenges, what the negatives aspects/obstacles are.

Hi Elisbetta-

Just (belatedly) submitted my own proposal, which is in accord with this one as I understand it.  My (limited) experience is that owing to constraints on time, predominantly, practitioners in the FE and Skills sector do not engage with the idea of Learning Design, in online or physical environments as easily as they should do. Consequently I believe there is an argument to be made that engaging with these considerations can improve the quality of learning within these milieu, and my proposal broadly outlines how (with an emphsis also on demonstrating the qualitative and qualitative benefits of engagement; like it or not we work in an increasingly commodified sector and I don't think just saying "you should do this" is sufficient; we need an evidence base in order to make engagement appealing. It also strikes me that presently the conversation is rather HE-centric so  a glossary and/or contextualisation of terms appproriate for practitioners in  these environments needs to be included.

Also-happy to team up on this proposal, with the broad aim of creating online learning design templates applicable to practicioners in the FE and Skills sectors; This seems to be broadly where we're both headed.

Elisabetta - Dan just to let you know the address of a study circle I've created... don't mind shifting to someone else's Study Circle if that makes the interaction more convenient.
