Shaping the digital future of FE and skills
The enforced shift to remote and online working and studying caused by the pandemic is the springboard for our new project aimed at realising the potential of technology to benefit the further education (FE) sector now and into the future.
Driven jointly with the Association of Colleges (AoC), the project is bringing together college leaders, teachers, learners, sector bodies and edtech experts.
Phase one, which took place throughout June and July 2020, saw 400 delegates actively discussing learner and experience, digital pedagogy, digital leadership and system reform. Since then, the group has shared the best examples of innovative teaching, learning and assessment practice demonstrated during the pandemic crisis and established a consensus on what “good” looks like.
This research is included in the group’s first report which includes a series of recommendations to government, sector bodies and colleges in order to realise the potential of technology to benefit the FE and skills sector now and into the future.
Phase two will build on the report’s recommendations, particularly focusing on sharing best practice, advice and guidance and carrying out further research into digital leadership and the development of guidelines for learner engagement online.
