Innovative Practice with e-Learning

e-Learning and Pedagogy


Through the e-Learning and Pedagogy strand of this programme, JISC aims to ensure that e-learning as practised in UK post-16 sector should be pedagogically sound, learner-focused and accessible.

The aims of this strand are to:

  • scope existing learning theories, frameworks and models.
  • explore how an emerging body of established practice could be mapped against theoretical perspectives.
  • promote the application and development of e-learning tools and standards to support effective practice.

e-Learning and Pedagogy strand activities are broadly grouped under two themes, 'Designing for Learning' (with a practitioner planning focus) and 'Understanding my Learning', (with a learner reflection focus). Outcomes from these two themes can be found under separate headings on the e-Learning and Pedagogysection of the e-Learning Programme website. You can also keep up to date with developments in the e-Learning and Pedagogy and Innovation strands by receiving a quarterly news update by subscribing to the EPED-INFOmailing list.

To oversee the direction and relevance of the work of this strand for the communities it serves, the e-Learning and Pedagogy Experts Group has been established. This group meets tri-annually to consult with e-learning practitioners, researchers and developers on the outcomes and forward planning of programmes of work. Further information can be found on the e-Learning and Pedagogysection of the e-Learning Programme website.
