Responding to Learners

This meeting will consider the final outcomes and recommendations from the Learner Experiences of e-Learning programme (LEX), and findings of the LliDA (Learning Literacies in a Digital Age) project.

Participants will be asked how institutions, practitioners and funders such as the JISC should respond to these findings, and what issues should be prioritised in future funding. Exemplars will be showcased to illustrate how some institutions are responding to the emerging themes. Discussions will be facilitated by members of the project teams involved in the Learner Experiences of e-Learning Programme.
