Between March and June 2021, Zac Gribble and I ran a series of online sessions on the effective design and use of digital learning resources. This post brings together in one place all the project materials – webinar recordings, links collections and other guidance – developed as part of the project.
This work was carried out during 2021/22 to support the post-16 sector in Wales, including work based learning (WBL), adult community learning (ACL) and further education (FE). Whilst the focus was on the priorities of practitioners and learners in Wales within the Digital 2030 framework, we hope the material will also be of use to others. There is also a great deal of opportunity to build on this foundation so that practitioners can continue to share their experience in this fast-changing area. There are many topics we would love to have explored in more depth and we hope the learning conversations that we have started will continue!
