HEE TEL Survey

HEE TEL have designed a survey to provide the opportunity to capture further information that we didn’t have time to cover during the last round of forums. Building on the discovery work the survey will enable HEE TEL to better understand;

  • how your organisation is currently using technology to support education and training and how HEE TEL can support this,
  • which TEL subgroups you are interested in joining, and offer you the opportunity to register your interest to be involved in future TEL initiatives.

The survey has also been designed to capture some additional details about your organisation that can be used to prepopulate some of the data required to complete the TEL Readiness Assessment in your specialist areas, to save duplication when this is sent out to your organisation.

We would appreciate it if you could complete the survey (which should take about 15 minutes) by Friday the 17 December 2021.

The results of the survey will be collated and analysed in time to feedback at the next round of TEL Forums scheduled for January 2022.

Novice to Expert Instructional Design Strategies16 December 2021, 6.00 pm GMT

We will look closely at how the different levels of expertise were defined and characterized. We will also explore examples of instructional design strategies used for each level (including with the use of authentic scenarios, guided “show me” interactions, worked examples, “situated” customer simulations, adaptive assessments, and gamification). Additionally, we will provide examples of the exit criteria, assessment, and evaluation process used to measure the learner’s success at each level.

Lastly, we will look closely at what it means to be a change agent in the context of a learning experience initiative. We will share tips for how to enlist change agents to help make the vision for the learning experience initiative a reality, and for gaining support for the initiative.
