Workers’ Educational Association
(Project 1)

This project created a flexible CPD offer to support tutors to embed learning technology within face-to-face teaching, learning and assessment. The modules can be used as part of initial teacher training programmes or as stand-alone resources for more experienced tutors.

Read the final report to discover how WEA have used feedback, evaluation and participation within a community of practice to impact on the confidence and technical skills of staff.

Final report

  • Address the ‘pros’ and ‘cons’ of asking students to bring their own devices;
  • Use social media to enhance learning;
  • Record distance travelled using book creator.
