ALT is a partner in the ‘Changing the Learning Landscape’ programme, a new partnership venture which aims to take a multi-pronged approach to helping English higher education providers make strategic changes in the way they use technology to support learning, teaching and the student experience.
The progamme is a partnership between the Leadership Foundation for Higher Education, the Higher Education Academy, Association for Learning Technology, National Union of Students and JISC, and is funded by HEFCE. It has three strands of activity: an intensive development programme for strategic leaders; the provision of consultancy support and expertise to institutional teams involved in technology-enhanced change; and a CPD programme for academics and educational developers. The first two of these strands are currently open for applications.
The strategic change programme aims to equip leaders of learning, teaching and the student experience to develop, communicate and deliver a vision for the enhancement of these areas through the strategic use of learning technologies. Applications for the programme are open now, with a closing date of 14 November, and the programme starts with a face to face event on 27-28 November.
The consultancy support strand offers the equivalent of six days of support to institutional teams to help them implement strategic change in the use of learning technology. Support is available in a wide range of areas, and is provided free of charge to the institution. Bids from institutions will need to outline the project they wish to work on, with evidence for the need for the work. Bids must be received by 1 November, for support starting in December.
Information on how to apply for both strands, and further information about the Changing the Learning Landscape programme as a whole, is available on the Leadership Foundation website at http://www.lfhe.ac.uk/en/programmes-events/your-univeristy/cll/
