I have started this blog to share my experiences of and opinions on various aspects of e-learning instructional design and technologies. As explained in the “About” section, I am interested in the application of e-learning technologies in adult education and training, both in university and business contexts. In this space, I will comment on interesting developments in these areas and try to evaluate them based on my and others’ experiences.
I have developed an interest in instructional design with the focus on e-learning and online technologies as part of my professional development as an HE lecturer. I am a HEA Fellow and hold a PG Diploma in Learning and Teaching in HE, the SEDA certificate in Supporting Learning Technology and the SEDA certificate in Embedding Learning Technologies. I am involved with learning technologies as part of my everyday work and in this blog I would like to contribute to sharing and advancing effective professional practice by promoting discussion on and research in e-learning technologies and opportunities.
What I see as the main role of learning technologies in today’s adult education and training can be summarised as the enhancement of learner’s experience by allowing greater flexibility and widening opportunities. This blog is intended to serve as my small contribution to the development of learning communities focused on research in and promotion of online technologies in adult education.
