At this year’s ALT-C conference, Richard Walker will co-present the following short paper at ALT-C: ‘Capturing current realities and future challenges: findings from the 2012 UCISA TEL survey’
The presentation will discuss some of the key findings emerging from the 2012 TEL Survey. The Report has just been published on the UCISA website and is available for viewing at: http://www.ucisa.ac.uk/bestpractice/surveys/tel.aspx
This is the sixth survey of its kind that UCISA has conducted, and offers a longitudinal perspective of TEL developments over an 11-year period within UK higher education, focusing on the provision already in place within institutions and the current, emerging and planned patterns of learning technology use across the HE community. For this year’s survey report, we included an additional layer of data on university mission groups, offering a different perspective on TEL trends across the sector.
The survey aims to shed light on long-standing areas of interest such as strategies and motivations for TEL provision, whilst touching on new concerns such as the economic climate that UK institutions are working in (post Browne review) – how funding issues may be impacting on central and local support & staffing provision and training and development opportunities.
