HEE TEL Programme Bulletin
User needs research
Following the completion of a desk study in May to effectively scope out existing TEL platforms and resources, additional research is currently being carried out to provide further evidence that there is a real need for a fully integrated TEL hub.
A questionnaire was sent out across the programme networks on 17 October and can be accessed at: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/JCC9D2C
The survey will close on 3 November 2014. Please tweet about it too #HEETEL
All results will be triangulated with the desk study and other existing data from previous meetings and events and the results will inform the final Government Digital Services (GDS) business case.
TEL Hack Day 2015, 6 – 8 March
A TEL specific hack day is planned in 2015, aimed at developing ideas and IT solutions to support healthcare students, staff and educators.
This weekend event is planned to take place from 6 to 8 March 2015 in Leeds. More details to follow shortly.
TEL Programme Review
A review was undertaken of the TEL Programme during August 2014 and the TEL Steering Group has now agreed the projects that are being progressed in order to deliver the Programme aims. Clearly the main deliverable of the TEL Programme is the TEL hub but there are 10 additional projects that the team is committed to building on. Each of the objectives, outputs, outcomes and benefits were discussed at an all groups’ meeting on 21 October and more detail will be shared over the coming weeks.
TEL @ conferences and events this month
November will be busy month for the TEL team with presentations, workshops and stands planned at key upcoming events:
Regional news and views…
There continues to be an exciting range of TEL projects and initiatives being implemented regionally and this section of the newsletter is designed to provide a snapshot.
e-Learning Boot Camp Experience
Developers and others who support the delivery of e-Learning in the North West are benefitting from a new capability and capacity programme – the e-Learning Boot Camp Experience. Managed by the North West e-Learning Support Service, this programme is providing access to introductory and advanced skills in e-authoring, project management and quality assurance.
Sharing simulation scenarios
The North West simulation network have created a bank of evidence-based simulation scenarios to be made available across the region, as well as rolling out a quality assurance methodology to accredit individuals in the development of simulation skills, local courses using simulation techniques and centre-wide simulation.
Regional Simulation Network launched
Health Education North East (HENE) launched their Simulation Network last month, as part of the new Faculty for Patient Safety, within HENE. The aim is to bring together everyone who is interested in clinical skills, human factors and enhanced learning and education opportunities that effective simulation, research and innovation can deliver.
