Full recordShow full item record
AbstractThis presentation provides an overview of the aims, process and results of Brunel University’s e-Learning Pathfinder Project, ENTICE, funded by the HE Academy. The presenters will describe data collection methods used to identify effective e-learning practices in the academic School context: a process of Appreciative Inquiry with academic staff, establishing student views by means of a Personal Response System, and analysis of virtual learning environment statistics of student access. An overview will be given of the eight e-pedagogical considerations identified as critical to building an evidence-base of effective learning using the Appreciative Inquiry process. The team will report on the investigations in the different Schools of the University, and the response of academics to the process. Dissemination strategies will be discussed: internal events to promote e-learning strategies in the Schools at Brunel, as well as to other interested national and international HE institutions.
