Open Awards are being funded by the Department for Education’s Flexible Learning Fund to bring Blended Learning materials to Access to Higher Education Health-Related Diplomas.
With a focused Blended Learning team, including a dedicated Digital Content Developer, Open Awards are offering colleges opportunities to enhance or commence their blended learning offer with an aim to widening participation.
The Open Awards Blended Learning team are able to convert your offline content or workbooks into digitalised interactive versions whilst working to support tutors to ensure that they are comfortable with this delivery approach.
What’s the Point?
The inability to spend time in a classroom environment away from life commitments is often cited as one of the biggest barriers to learning faced by adults when considering returning to education.
The benefit to adopting a Blended learning approach to delivery is twofold:
- Learners: will have increased flexible access to learning that can fit around work/life commitments.
- Tutors: could increase learner engagement opportunities and have access to content development of existing materials to an online and engaging format.
How can you get involved?
- Content: Sharing content for online development by our Content Developer using interactive software solutions.
- Expert Advice: If you are already using Blended Learning materials and would like support by streamlining your offer or if you are completely new to Blended Learning and want specific advice on how to introduce it in your organisation.
- Learners: We are looking for materials to be piloted during the next year, and are looking for colleges to work with.
