    Our new Lifelong Learning & Workforce Development programme aims to support Higher Education institutions in using digital technologies to meet the needs of employers and work-based learners. We are concerned not only with the technologies themselves, but also the processes and ‘cultural’ changes that are needed to reap the benefits of such technologies –

    Incidentally, this is part of a wider programme of work, the Institutional Innovation programme, which is aimed at supporting existing institutional strategies by providing solutions to institution-wide issues. We aim to demonstrate by example innovation and good practice and to build knowledge and experience which can be shared with other educational institutions.

    … Look out for a review of the Lifelong Learning Show in June’s edition of Inform (written by yours truly!)

    I really enjoyed the show yesterday.
    It was a bit different from what we were used to with ‘sounds of the bazaar’ but it was equally interesting.
    It sounded very professional – lots of effort to put that together – that’s for sure, but I think it was worth doing so. Like it was often mentioned in the chatroom the music was also superb and was a great startegy to move from one topic to the other. Of course the other part that I thoroughly enjoyed was the fact we had a live panel – totally based on spontaneous questions and answers, which the virtual audience was able to contribute with.
    What else can I say: keep it up! We need more of this. It not only gives access to the voices of the more experienced, it also allow us to interact with them and add our own thoughts and questions.

    Congratulations. I loved the innovative approach. We need more like this one… 😉

    Thank you for this highly informative broadcast. I enjoyed listening to the issues at hand with the use of digital technologies in work place settings. You had a broad list of guests making it a more engaging format for the audience.

    I look forward to more e-learning shows in the near future!
