Managing Learning. The Role of the Recording of Achievement.
Further Education Unit, London (England).
This publication describes a powerful system for managing students' learning and enhancing the quality of programs in British colleges of further education. The system described is for full-time students because that is the clearest way of exemplifying the practical form such a system would take. It discusses these basic principles: students need recognition and encouragement, learning and achievements are not limited to qualifications, and learning needs to be managed. A two-page overview of the learning management system indicates which chapters provide detailed information on different aspects of the system. Each chapter begins with an outline. More detailed "notes" follow. The chapter on designing the system considers the structure of the system, finding the resources, and the role of managers. The following chapter focuses on what happens in the system: the role of the personal tutor, the role of the teacher, conducting a planning and review session, specifying achievements and learning targets, and the summary document. A chapter on managing quality discusses the quality of the college's courses and the quality of the learning management system. The publication concludes with a description of the origins and development of the thinking behind records of achievement, action plans, and profiles. (YLB)
