Littlejohn, A.H. and Grierson, H. (2001). Embedding Information and Communication Technologies into the 21st Century Curriculum. In: Computers in Art & Design Education Conference, Apr 2001, UK, Glasgow School of Art Press, pp. 199–202.


Embedding information and communication technologies (ICT) within learning and teaching programmes offers the potential to enrich learning by promoting networking and the collaborative construction of knowledge. This is especially important for professionals working within disciplines such as Architecture in which ICT is used within the design process. This article aims to outline some advantages and limitations experienced when developing an online "CPD Learning Zone" for Architects through an accredited staff development programme. Issues are discussed from the point of view of both a staff developer and a member of teaching staff. It will be of interest to staff developers as well as teaching staff proposing to develop similar online courses.
