Free workshops aimed at tutors working in ACL, Offender Learning and the Voluntary and Community sectors

Sat 25 Nov 2006 Durham
Sat 27 Jan 2007 Birmingham
Sat 17 Feb 2007 Plymouth

The Subject E-learning Workshop programme has been developed to raise awareness of the distinctive ways in which e-learning techniques and content can be applied to specific subject areas. These workshops will focus on topics and subjects that are also supported with materials procured by the Learning and Skills Council:

  • Family Learning
  • ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages)
  • Modern Foreign Languages.

All subject workshops will also look at the Making Learning Work for You materials.

The workshops will promote an understanding of:

  • How e-learning generally can support teaching and learning in the target subject area
  • How NLN learning objects can support teaching and learning in the target subject area
  • The practical issues associated with deploying NLN materials.

The national workshops will last for one day and participants will opt to join a group specialising in one of the three subjects areas.

  • a tutor or manager from adult and community learning, offender learning and skills or the voluntary and community sector
