This session is aimed at everyone interested in the FE and Adult Skills sector. It will be presented by four senior and experienced FE teachers, all Nationally recognised in the FE and Skills sector, and all involved personally in the FELTAG or Jisc or Education and Training Foundation (ETF) National Programmes, all of which are written in terms of how technology changes relationships between those involved in the enterprise of finding ‘line of sight’ to employment.
Each will present ideas and illustrations taken from practice, looking at how technologies will be used from the perspective of the changes in the following four key relationships:
• teacher – learner partnership
• learner – employer relationship
• teacher- manager relationship
• teachers as co-mentors and CPD
A final shorter session will translate these evolving relationships into a model for the immediate future of teaching and learning and assessment, through changing behaviours in using learning, vocational and general technology.
The audience will consider a summative full sweep of leading-edge policy and thinking in FE, drawing on current Jisc studies on unique learning journeys for Employability, and activity taken from the perspective of new working relationships of teachers and students as Change Agents, their managers as enablers and e-safety translated to Risk Management.
Specifically, we will explore:
• the change in curriculum to more enquiry based e-learning
• the capture and demonstration of new employability skills
• the newly defined role of managers as enablers
• the role of students as change agents and
• the expectations amongst students in the purpose of technology in their relationship with FE and Skills
All are current Jisc or ETF or FELTAG Projects involving one or more of the presenters at the heart of the policy formation.
We will also need to be mindful generally of the changes driven by the 25% cut in non-apprenticeship funding being made from September 2015.
Each mini presentation will include an opportunity to question and discuss ideas. The audience will be invited to share ideas about the changes. The four presenters will facilitate a discussion in the last 20 minutes.
We plan to make a series of slides, based on the main points of presentation and others subsequently made as part of the wider discussion against each theme.
