As previously mentioned on this blog, Jisc are working with partners on the HEFCE-funded Changing the Learning Landscape initiative. It’s all full steam ahead now, with delegates well into the Strategic Change programme, and sixteen institutions already benefiting from consultancy support from the partners. The Higher Education Academy are poised to announce a series of workshops under the CPD strand.
Under the consultancy strand, we at Jisc are currently supporting institutions in thinking through and addressing issues to do with digital literacies, assessment and feedback, planning a new strategy for a learning environment, and bringing together the virtual and physical learning environments. It’s been what’s both accurately and euphemistically known as a ‘learning experience’ thinking through the processes required to support institutions in this slightly different way, especially in a partnership context, but it’s really rewarding to be able to bring new teams the benefits of the learning and resources from years of Jisc development projects.
Round two of the consultancy strand is now open for bids from English HEIs, and FE colleges which deliver HE. There are still plenty of spaces on the programme, so do give it a go. You’ll need to be quick, though, as the closing date is 14 February. Further information on the initiative, and how to apply, is available on the CLL web pages.
