    The Joint Information Systems Committee (JISC) has confirmed that it will provide funding of £25,000 to enable the FPS to undertake a 13 month dating online free project to develop an innovative blended learning module. TVU will be working in collaboration with London Metropolitan University to re-purpose existing e-learning objects into a TVU module covering ‘Academic Competence and Critical Enquiry’ led by Lyn Greaves, Teaching Fellow. A number of staff from across TVU will be contributing to the project.

    The bid was submitted by a small team consisting of Lyn Greaves, Senior Lecturer from the Faculty of Professional Studies, School of Business, Tad Leduchowicz Head of the E-Learning Unit and Andy Turner Manager of the Online Systems Group and Professor Sibel Roller, FHHS.

    The initiative will provide a number of opportunities for engaging with acknowledged national and international specialists in blended and e-learning. Diana Laurillard from the Institute of Education and Claire Bradley from the London Metropolitan University led a workshop for TVU staff on the 11th February. The aim was to explore the possible use in TVU of a Pedagogic Planner developed by the Institute of Education for the purpose of creating blended learning courses that incorporate e-learning. Although the Pedagogic Planner is at an early stage of development there are many potential benefits in being involved at the development stage. The Faculty hopes to use this and similar instruments to help mainstream blended learning approaches.
