A Professional Development Framework for E-Learning. Topics: Leadership, Training and Learning Packages for E-Learning
Learning and Skills Network (NJ1)
The topics outlined here have been developed to complement the policies and methodologies outlined in the professional development framework for e-learning. They include: (1) a core topic: e-learning fundamentals; (2) pedagogically based practitioner topics; (3) specialist e-learning developer topics; and (4) leadership topics (developed by the Centre for Excellence in Leadership). Any participant wishing to undertake e-learning professional development (ePD) would complete the e-learning fundamentals topic alongside a selection of appropriate pedagogical, specialist or leadership topics. These can be followed by individuals or used to develop organizational approaches to embedding e-learning within teaching, learning and management. The framework described has been developed to allow for ePD and so participants may decide to re-visit topics after a suitable period of time has elapsed or repeat topics but with different software, hardware or technologies. The aim has been to provide a framework that can meet the individual's needs and identify areas of priority for professional development. Programs of delivery may be developed from the framework, or mapped retrospectively to tie into existing initiatives where there is related work, e.g., in any subject, theme or initiative where there is some electronic or e-learning aspect. Key themes may be threaded throughout the topics as applicable, e.g., assistive technology, legislation, copyright, Intellectual Property Rights and sustainability. The framework would facilitate the creation of ePD for those currently in the functional roles described as follows, or facilitate the creation of training programs for those aspiring to those roles.
