akeover for New Zealand’s eLearning Guidelines

Makeover for New Zealand’s eLearning Guidelines offers better support for tertiary online teaching and learning

New Zealand’s eLearning Guidelines (eLg) enter a new era this week with the launch of the updated and expanded guidelines to better support eLearning decision-making in the tertiary sector.

The guidelines support individuals and organisations wanting to develop or enhance their online teaching and learning. The 2014 eLg also consider new technologies developed since the guidelines were first established in 2004. This is supported by the launch of a new eLg website, which provides an interactive platform for people interested in engaging with the comprehensive material, and those keen to contribute to its future development.

This initiative to update and expand the original eLg was led by New Zealand Tertiary College, and funded by Ako Aotearoa –National Centre for Tertiary Teaching Excellence. Extensive consultation with diverse groups has helped shape the eLg project from its inception, such as; the Tertiary eLearning Reference Group (TeLRG - the Ministry of Education-established panel of eLearning experts), the Ako Aotearoa Academy of Tertiary Teaching Excellence, and advisors from varying types of institutions throughout New Zealand and internationally.

The revamped guidelines now consider technology-supported teaching and learning from five different perspectives, with organisational leaders and quality assurance bodies joining the existing learner, teacher and manager perspectives.

Selena Fox, Chief Executive, New Zealand Tertiary College comments “From their earliest version in 2004, the eLearning guidelines have offered critical, reflective prompts to the New Zealand Tertiary College (NZTC) in our technology-supported learning developments. Over many years they have served to guide and inform our online learning environment development, our teaching and learning, and have become embedded throughout our college decision making and practices.”

“NZTC is honoured to have led the review and update of the eLg project to support all organisations engaged in technology-supported teaching and learning throughout New Zealand and beyond.”

Dr Peter Coolbear, Ako Aotearoa’s director adds, “Ako Aotearoa is delighted to support New Zealand Tertiary College in this work that offers easy-to-access, practical and comprehensive guidance for the development of engaging and effective on-line teaching and learning.”

“The eLg’s strength is that it offers perspectives for each of the key players involved, not least the learners themselves. It is not a series of prescriptions, but provides carefully constructed prompts to guide self-evaluation and reflective practice. The eLg is also designed to be a live resource that provides the basis for communities of practice that will continually review and refresh the resource. Congratulations to all involved.” he says.

Gordon Campbell: Classics - Tales From Moominvalley
Can’t speak for the reading end of it but the Moomins ( or maybe the story about Margaret Wise Brown) were the most enjoyable subject to think about and write about during these whole first 50 issues of Werewolf. For that reason – and because the Moomins always reward re-reading – I’ve decided to reprint it. The only added element is a link to an interesting hour long documentary about Tove Jansson. More>>
