The team brings many years of experience working in the field of technology enhanced learning, online learning and digital students.
Lou McGill and Tim Gray have recently worked with Heather Price from Jisc and the Scaling up online learning working group to produce a series of Scaling up online learning guides and also worked with SkillSet Limited on the Online learning readiness tool. They also worked together on the evaluation of the Coventry University Open Media Classes.
Lou has worked with several institutions carrying out research into learners on open courses, including the Glasgow Caledonian work on self-regulation of professional learners in Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCS) and an Open University study into learners on FutureLearn.
Tim also works part-time as a lecturer at De Montfort University.
Helen Beetham has recently worked on the Jisc Digital Student projects; Jisc Learners’ experiences of e-Learning Programme, Jisc Developing Digital Literacies programme and Jisc Digital Capabilities Frameworks project.
The team’s experience of working with key agencies, Jisc partners and a range of UK FE and HE institutions means that we have a good network of people to involve in this review. The team also brings together experience from two key areas of work for Jisc to ensure that the Scaling up online learning work aligns with the Digital Student work.
