where we are now

Where we are now

Some examples - to provide baseline information for LTSO project - will be able to see what increase in uptake there is

how can we get there
How can we get there
  • Improve Staff Skills (Software training pilot underway - more of this later)
  • Find out what is happening in other institutions - e.g. Coventry Experience
  • Build on what we have
  • Planned cultural evolution - support of LTNs
Initially this is supporting current practice rather than transforming it. Making available information that is found elsewhere and then developing new teaching and learning styles where appropriate.
  • A teaching and learning tool the potential of which all academic staff should be aware of in order to decide if and when it is applicable/helpful to their teaching.
  • Some good recent examples are education intranet site (
ltso project conclusion
LTSO project - conclusion
  • Coordinating the top down, bottom up tension
    • Partnership between centre and schools
    • Common shared elements needed
    • Diversity of the ‘pioneers’
    • Finding the right baseline resources and skills for all academic staff
  • Minimum standards for all?
    • Access to:
      • Virtual Learning Environment/intranet
      • standard software and hardware
      • appropriate training for above

This requires a working partnership between centre, LTSO project and schools
