Case study – Morley College and Rose Bruford College: Cross-sector peer review as a driver for VLE development and beyond…

Just published on the Excellence Gateway, this RSC London case study looks at a unique (we think!) cross-sector partnership that is now moving into the second phase of a technology-focused peer review.Rose Bruford logo

The case study  traces the progress, of what is proving to be a fruitful dialogue between Morley College and RoMorley logose Bruford College, starting with the recognition of the many features in common at Morley, an adult learning provider, and Rose Bruford, a specialist HEI drama school. This key observation came out of visits made separately to the institutions by Jisc RSC advisors, Martin Sepion and Evan Dickerson who continue to facilitate at peer review meetings.

The peer review process has led to a productive, frequent, ongoing and much appreciated working dialogue with my colleague at Morley.

– David Matthews, VLE Manager at Rose Bruford

An early focus for their collaboration was the roll-out and implementation of their respective Moodle VLEs, but this is now extending to pedagogy, including changes to the teaching and learning culture, and embedding blended learning.

“I think the peer review process has brought many more benefits than any of the participants had originally anticipated.”
– Laurence Elliott, VLE Manager at Morley College
