SOLSTICE Seminar Series: Professor Andrew Sackville

23rd Apr 2008 - 9:30am

Edge Hill University

SOLSTICE, Edge Hill University’s recognised Centre of Excellence for Teaching and Learning, is a method of programme delivery that uses supported online and blended learning designed on sound pedagogic principles and developed as a result of ongoing evaluative research.

Free SOLSTICE seminars feature experts sharing their knowledge, expertise and skills with colleagues from across Higher and Further Education. The presentations and workshops are designed to help academic and learner support staff across Higher Education further their skills and understanding, enhancing their ability to develop, deliver and research all aspects of supported online and blended learning.

The theme for the seminar on Wednesday 23rd April is ‘How do I prepare my students to become e-learners?’.

What is the new about being an online learner? Do students need to develop new skills for online study? What are the challenges of learning or studying online? This workshop examines the evidence about the actual process of learning "online"; and explores issues of induction and the preparation and support of students who are starting off as online learners.
