Technology enhanced learning to support a welsh centre for workforce development (TELWFD)

The project aims to establish an all-Wales Centre of Workforce Development as recommended in the recent study by Middlesex University, (Nov 2008), commissioned by UWIC as part of a HEFCW sponsored project on Workforce Development in Wales. The Project will consist of four streams within the embrace of such a centre: work-based delivery in the Cardiff School of Management, UWIC; Dental Technology (Centre for Dental Technology, UWIC); Inter-professional Studies (Regulation of Care Services Award), Centre for Applied Social Sciences, UWIC; and Learning Coaches in the Department of Professional Development, Cardiff School of Education, UWIC. Through a synthesis of the outcomes of this work with relevant good practice identified elsewhere the project aims to develop; transferable models of technology-supported delivery and an overview of the strategic and policy issues attendant with such models, plus support for wider adoption in the form of guidance materials and good practice exemplars.

Project summary (derived from final report)

The project aimed to identify sustainable models for technology-supported delivery of workforce development provision, and associated strategy and policy implications via developmental activity undertaken in different contexts. Two different work-based learning processes, Learning in Work, and Learning through Work were identified, as were transferable models of technology-supported delivery. Case studied were created to capture the experience of work based learners and use of technologies. Several good practice and additional ‘how to’ guides were created covering technologies such as Adobe Connect, Adobe Presenter, Luminosity, PebblePad, Wimba Create, Wikis and Blogs. A Work-Based Learning Mentoring Handbook was also developed alongside repositories with other useful resources. The e-portfolios were developed using the Blackboard Campus Pack plug-in XPO-XL.
The solutions developed are embedded in the participating programme areas and the process of stimulating additional impact through wider adoption is in progress.

One of the challenges is with online synchronous processes. Particularly involving the Health Care stream there has been the requirement for high levels of security thus making use of the Welsh Assembly Government video conferencing system. This is a system that is often not familiar to those needing to use it and often is in remote venues with limited support. Access and familiarity levels with technology generally is a challenge that the project is aiming to address including through the development of support resources.
