Download the PDF version of this pack

This resource pack synthesises the outcomes from the Learner Experiences of e-Learning theme of the JISC e-Learning Programme which funded a total of ten projects from 2005 to 2009, and had the sustained involvement of over 200 learners and more than 3000 survey respondents to explore learners’ perceptions of and participation in technology-enhanced learning in a digital age.

The content of Responding to Learners includes a series of five guides and a set of key messages postcards containing quotes from learners.  The postcards summarise the key findings from this JISC-funded research and can form the basis for staff development activities. The series of guides offer recommendations on how institutions can better respond to learners’ expectations and uses of technology and offers practical guidance on how to embed the learners’ voice more effectively into institutional processes and practice.

‘Learners allowed us into their worlds and showed us what it is like to study in a technology-rich age.’

The 5 guides are written for different roles within the institution and highlight the key issues relevant to these roles.
