After ‘The Sounds of the Bazaar’ and ‘The Dragons Den’ it is time to branch out and make other types of programmes as well.
JISC has commissioned a pilot of a new programme, ‘The e-Learning show’. The pilot programme will be broadcast this upcoming Thursday, 21 May at 1800 UK Summer Time, 1900 Central European Summer Time.
The following blurb provides the rundown for the show:
“Thursday, 21 May sees the pilot programme of a new JISC live internet radio programme, ‘the e-Learning Show’. The programme is based on issues raised at the recent JISC Lifelong Learning Symposium.
These issues include how university and college cultures need to change to support work based learning, who the new students are and what are their needs, how e-Portfolios can be used both for recording learning and for providing information, advice and guidance and the use of mobile technologies.
The programme considers both current and emergent practices in elearning and the development of policies to support such practice.
The programme will be presented by Graham Attwell and guests include Derek Longhurst from Foundation Degree Forward, Clive Church from Edexel, Lucy Stone from Leicester College, Tony Toole from the University of Glamorgan, Bob Bell, HE in FE consultant for the northern region, Sandra Winfield from Nottingham University and Rob Ward from the Centre for Recording Achievement
