eLearning11 keynote: Enabling workforce development - insights from industries using e-learning

Dr John Buchanan

Director, Workplace Research centre
University of Sydney


Synopsis

Future workforce development is dependent on quality training provision. Yet individuals, workplaces and industry sectors that would most benefit from training are often unable to access it. In 2010 WRC undertook research into three sectors using e-learning. IT was found that e-learning can help to overcome traditional barriers to training such as geographic isolation, casual and part-time employment, and work intensification.

eLearning11: E-learning for indigenous learners in remote communities

Presenter
Georgina Nou, TAFE SA Regional


Synopsis

Education and training for indigenous people in remote communities has been fraught with difficulties because of geographical isolation, cultural concerns, peoples’ mobile lifestyles, economic considerations and need for focus. With the provision of ADSL internet in the Lands, we have adopted online training and have seen significant changes in access, participation and enthusiasm by community members. We have extended the capacity to deliver engaging, interactive and regular online sessions since the 2007 start, using Centra web-conferencing, Moodle and innovative technologies. POV technology, virtual worlds and interactive multimedia resources offer text alternatives for learners with inadequate literacy skills. After 10 years of working with remote indigenous communities Georgina brings her insights on the various initiatives and explores the issues for remote learners and educators when taking outbush training online.

Simon Byrnes, ex-student Key College Redfern

eLearning10 Day 1 keynote : Redefining the classroom

Download the MP3 file (1:06 mins)

Presenter
Andrew Douche

Synopsis
In this presentation, Andrew will explain why he believes it is necessary for educators to adopt new approaches to communicating with a new generation of learners. His intention is not to promote “high-tech” skills in teachers, but rather to encourage widespread adoption of easy-to-use technologies that are ‘high-concept’ and have the power to transform class interaction.
Andrew discusses how any educator is able to change the way he or she communicates with students, taking advantage of the very same digital communication tools that Gen-Y students use. From podcasting to online forums to mobile phones, this presentation will explore the potential in digital communication technologies to challenge where, when and how class members interact, and even who the class members are.

Download the MP3 file (30 mins)

Presenter

Kaye Bowman

Synopsis
Kaye’s presentation will discuss seven factors required together to sustain e-learning innovations:
1. Strategy – a longer term view than any one e-learning innovation is required.
2. Senior leadership – must support in ways appropriate to their particular situation.
3. Business case – is a key driver for for-profit businesses, especially cost savings.
4. Resourcing – external resources are short term; internal resources are required.
5. Champions – to build capability especially through one-to-one mentoring on how to use technologies.
6. People supports – to make it possible for teachers to focus on achieving learning using technologies that
could be internally and/or externally located.
7. Technology – both sufficient hardware and software support that could be internally and or externally
located. An organisation’s level of e-maturity depends on how well they exhibit these seven factors.

eLearning10 Day 1 session: How much fire can I steal?

Download the MP3 file (44 min)

Presenter

Howard Errey
Victorian Innovations Coordinator, Australian Flexible Learning Framework

Synopsis
Ever wondered what happens on the inside of an innovator? We’d all like to think that we can empower and open our students and organisations to the new wonderful ways of the web; but it’s not always simple and straightforward. There’s the challenges on the outside such as firewalls and the risk managers; but there’s also our inner psychology to deal with as well. Innovators might be able to see a marvellous future or potential, but don’t always feel empowered about what is going on around (and inside) them right now; and often feel alone.
Looking at mythology about innovations as well as examples of some notable innovators and sample E-learning Innovations projects, Howard looks at what makes an innovator and ask ‘how much fire can we steal?’ The intention of this session is that we gain insight into our own capacity for empowerment and development as an e-learning leader.
