Welcome to Learning Futures

Learning Futures is an ambitious and exciting programme designed to support governors, leaders, teachers and trainers to inspire learning through the effective use of technology. 

A key feature of the programme will be the development of online communities of practice where ideas and learning will be shared. Working collaboratively, we will explore new possibilities, solve challenging problems, and generate new knowledge and understanding that will support the professional development of the workforce.

The Big Questions: Join the conversation

Facilitated by leading experts the ‘Big Questions’ inspire genuine debate about the use of learning technologies. The guest chair will introduce the topic via a blog post or video, facilitate the ongoing discussion and then curate that discussion into a 'think piece' that will be shared with all.

How can the sector rise to the challenge of delivering high quality online learning?

Our first guest facilitator is Ale Armellini, Director of Institute of Learning and Teaching in HE at The University of Northampton.

Think about his warm up question: What blend are you?

And then contribute your own thoughts to the first big question: What does 'blended learning' mean in terms of course design and delivery?

Coming soon!

This community website is open to all who are interested in sharing ideas about how learning technologies can be used innovatively and effectively to enhance teaching and learning.

You can currently contribute to, and download resourcesfind out about action research and contribute to the Big Questions debate.

The website will grow with the community. Funded projects will be blogging about the excitement (…. and the pain!) of action research - and inviting comments and discussion. There will be plenty of discussion and the sharing of ideas and resources - so check back in regularly to be part of a vibrant and innovative community.
