When budgets are reducing and resources are limited using digital learning is often seen as the solution to the challenge.
But it isn’t as simple as replacing face-to-face learning with online modules. There are a wide range of issues to think about to support this type of learning if we want to be sure it is effective.
Our new, easy to use, self-assessment cards will help you discover how you can support digital learning in your organisation and you can use them to develop an action plan to improve your support for digital learning.
Here are just a few of the topics covered.
- How do we prepare staff to learn in digital settings?
- How do we give learners a sense of belonging to the (digital) organisation?
- How are we supporting learners to use their own devices and services?
- How do we make sure we have an inclusive learning experience with technology?
- How do we find out more about learners’ digital experiences and expectations?
- How well are we approaching these issues at a strategic level?
Using the cards
You can use the cards as:
a checklist, for example, how are we doing here?
a planning tool, for example, what should we prioritise next?
The cards are designed to help you think about what is happening and what could happen in your own organisation; they’re not designed for comparison with other organisations.
Tip 1: You could discuss this with colleagues informally or arrange for representatives from departments/services across the organisation to get together to use the cards as a self-evaluation framework.
Tip 2: Why not print the cards and use them in meetings?
Tip 3: You can work with them on your computer or tablet using the free Acrobat reader application.
