Launch of Effective Practice in a Digital Age
Effective Practice in a Digital Age - a guide to technology-enhanced learning and teaching provides the further and higher education sectors with a welcome update to the popular 2004 JISC publication, Effective Practice with e-Learning.
Effective Practice in a Digital Age is designed for those in further and higher education whose focus is on designing and supporting learning: academic staff, lecturers, tutors and learning support staff, facilitators, learning technologists and staff developers, and others with an interest in enhancing the quality of learning and teaching, and a curiosity about how technology can assist them.
The publication can be ordered in hard copy from survey.jisc.ac.uk/digitalage or downloaded in PDF and accessible text-only formats from www.jisc.ac.uk/practice . In addition, a number of supplementary resources are available online in the Effective Practice Resource Exchange www.jisc.ac.uk/resourceexchange which may be added to over time. These currently include themed video clips covering topics such as Responding to learners and Rethinking learning resources, a range of podcasts and audio resources, plus extended versions of the case studies.
All resources associated with this publication can be downloaded for use in educational contexts.
A UK-wide distribution of Effective Practice in a Digital Age has begun, targeting senior managers with a responsibility for the curriculum and heads of e-learning and staff development.
