A free online course for the Vocational Education and Training sector, ‘Blended Learning Essentials: Getting Started’, is now available.
This course, developed by the University of Leeds and UCL Institute of Education (IOE), is designed to help anyone teaching or supporting learning in the Vocational Education and Training (VET) sector understand the benefits of blended learning and how to use technology effectively to support learners.
Supported by a group of Digital Champions, you will connect with teaching and training professionals who understand the practical challenges of using blended learning. You will be aware of the importance of being able to blend digital methods into your teaching. These methods will help your learners become familiar with the digital workplaces they will be joining.
The course is free to attend and open to everyone, but particularly aimed at those working in the Vocational Education and Training sector, including: further education, skills training, vocational education, workplace learning and lifelong learning or adult education.
It is accredited by the CPD Certification Service, which means it can be used to provide evidence of your continuing professional development (CPD).
The Education and Training Foundation (ETF) has launched a new strategy setting out its plans to support everyone working in the Further Education (FE) and skills sector.
Gavin Lumsden, Director of Education & Student Experience, talks to us about what to expect from his breakout session at SET24. He also offers advice for educators wanting to maximise their learners’ potential.
