    Project aims

    By the end of the Project, the Team will have embedded a new technology enhanced module across a range of courses using TVU’s current Blackboard VLE, and addressed the following:

    1. Use of the London Pedagogical Planner, to dating online free evaluate and improve the learning design of a module and to identify where RLOs could fit into the module and session plans to support and enhance learning. Use of the RLO CETL Generative Learning Object tool to adapt RLOs to meet specific needs if required and appropriate.

    2. Relative merits of adopting a ‘more tutor-managed delivery’ of RLOs as opposed to ‘more student-managed approaches’ e.g. a comparison of three scenarios:

    • - Using RLO wraparounds (keeping the RLO as it is and adding a front-end to set the TVU context and a follow-up reflection or assessment to make the learning relevant to the local needs)
    • – Modifying the RLO itself so that it is more suitable for TVU needs
    • – Providing RLO choice (providing students with a selection of RLOs that cover similar learning outcomes and allowing students to manage their own learning).

    3. Identification of learning gains and possible causal drivers through comparative cohort performance evaluation of learners’ experiences.

    4. Maximise Institutional Learning by rigorous monitoring and evaluation of Project Activity, and critical event analysis focussed on issue-based themes including:

    • – Quality Assurance – systems in relation to validation, monitoring and development of re-purposed learning objects within planned and existing courses
    • – Technical Infrastructures – IT platforms, Support Departments etc and implications for embedding and supporting re-purposed learning objects
    • – e-pedagogic support – for the design, delivery and evaluation of re-usable learning objects
    • – Faculty and University Administrative systems – including interfaces and data exchange.

    5. Incorporate dissemination strategies to inspire fellow practitioners, and serve as a hub for cross-programme integration of findings and resources, and for sharing practical experiences in reuse and re-purposing. These strategies will include case study and reflective weblog investigations of the opportunities and barriers to this kind of learning material reuse.

    6. Influence Policy and Strategy by processing evaluative findings to stakeholders and decision makers through the Project Monitoring Group, Faculty and University Learning Teaching and Assessment Committees, and their e-Learning Advisory Groups.
