OTLA Digital Projects
Find out how practitioners are using action research to discover the most effective ways to spread and embed effective practice in the use of technology to support Outstanding Teaching, Learning and Assessment (OTLA).
The Education and Training Foundation has commissioned a series of OTLA Digital projects with a December 2018 completion date. Each project engages a number of FE providers in a collaborative partnership, and focuses on the cascading of effective practice in the improvement of teaching, learning and/or assessment using digital technology. The project findings are being shared via termly newsletters, and the first project newsletters have now been published. These tell you about the aims and objectives of the project, who is involved, how the project team are approaching their task and who to contact for more information.
