The Adult Education sector faces particular challenges in exploiting the potential of technology in teaching and learning. This is largely due to the part time nature of the teaching staff, dispersed centres and shorter courses.
To meet these challenges ACL providers in London are in the process of drafting a London-wide VLE strategy for the sector. This will include learner entitlement to on-line resources, express organisational commitment to the use of modern teaching practice and materials, and requests that publicly funded learning providers share their digital resources.
The strategy is in the draft stage at the moment and will soon be available for consultation. It will then be sent to each of the 39 London based adult education providers for consideration in the autumn.
