  1. MLE Developer’s Pack MLE and Further Education Paul Ricketts City College Manchester

  2. Networking Lifelong Learning 1999 • Managed Learning Environments • Materials Development • National Infrastructure • Local Infrastructure • Staff Development

  3. Context • Success for All • Get on with IT Report • DELG recommendations • Joint Implementation Group (JIG)

  4. DfES strategy • To create an accessible infrastructure which makes ICT universally available to learners • To make ICT integral to all learning processes and to stimulate the development and acceptance of new ways of learning • To create, implement and support a dynamic framework for ICT skills and a corresponding framework for teachers

  5. DfES – Get On with IT • ICT as a Basic Skill – an entitlement for all • College Online • E-learning for work based learning and SMEs • Mentoring Network • From learning to work – Which Way? • Ministerial lead • E-learning marketing strategy

  6. Funding for Post 16 e-Learning

  7. DELG Areas of action • Strategy and coordination at national and local levels • Learner provision • Content • Quality standards and accreditation • Learner management and information • Staff skills and CPD • Sustainability and funding

  8. Strategy and co-ordination • Inter-agency national co-ordination (but not control) of e-learning initiatives • National strategic framework for DEL • Local LSC plans for DEL (part of core local strategy) • Workforce development strategy to include e-learning • LSC DEL - planning remit to include ALL 16+ provision

  9. Learner provision • Goal – all learners have access to ICT, and access to ICT and e-learning skills • Blended learning the norm • Research programme better to understand ‘best fit’ blend of method and learner needs • Develop widely available e-learning approaches to ‘Skills for Life’ needs • Grow the infrastructure to provide ICT access to whole LSC community

  10. Content • Materials design standards underpin public funding of development • Guidance on best practice standards for accessibility of DEL materials • Feasibility of a learning materials development and access strategy for Post-16 sector • Extend learndirect materials to wider 16+ community

  11. Quality standards and accreditation • Standards-driven approach to materials design • Support development of on-line assessment • Work with QCA for rapid unitisation of qualifications • Minimum standard of physical resources to be expected of providers • Training in DEL for inspectors

  12. Learner management and information • Alignment of learner record systems to reduce bureaucratic burdens on learners • Press for unique learner ID to allow progression tracking between providers, including schools and universities

  13. Staff skills and professional development • Joint study with FENTO et al to design relevant CPD programmes • Study of the impact on professional practice of ‘unbundling’ the total delivery process • Substantial programme of development aimed at practitioners and managers • Develop leadership programmes for DEL • ICT skills mandatory part of teacher training for FE programmes

  14. Sustainability and funding • Appropriate balance between public and private providers/publishers • General expectation that the market will provide • LSC role in promoting development or gap filling • Mode free approach to funding • Not all funding should be formula-driven • Non-formula funds allocated by local LSCs to deliver local DEL plan

  15. NLN II • In 5 years we look to establish a fully connected national learning community covering homes, schools, colleges and workplaces sharing: • Infrastructure • Learning materials • Learning systems and data • Enthusiastic, well trained staff • First class support services • Best practice

  18. NLN II • Focus of centrally supported development to move from ILT infrastructure to realising the potential of ILT for Learning and Teaching • Higher priority to practice and management whilst sustaining infrastructure investment

  19. Questions • Current strategy – effective way forward? • Coping with exponential resource demands? • The size of the people task? • Likely changes in learner expectations? • Overcoming innate conservatism? • Faster curriculum changes? • How do we measure the impact?
