Rationale for developing an online model of staff development
Rationale for developing an online model of staff development

  • Due to funding cutbacks and college sustainability program can’t afford to continue with the travel incurred costs with staff driving to different campuses.

  • Take staff up to 45 minutes to travel between campus locations.

  • Staff loose time to travelling and thus this can affect attendance.

Wfd e portfolio system
WFD – e-portfolio system development

  • Last year we had just invested in a new web hosted e-portfolio system for our Work Force Development

  • Smart Assessor came with an integrated web conference room they called Smart Rooms.

  • Assessors can use the Smart Rooms to interact with learners 'virtually' over the web, in between formal face to face reviews.

  • Smart Rooms allowed assessors to record audio/video for Professional discussion, Q&A sessions and review progress.

  • The E learning team immediately saw the benefits of this software from a teaching & Learning & training perspective.

  • Here was our own online meeting space….
