Supporting Sustainable e-learning: A UK National Forum

Wiles, Kathy and Littlejohn, Allison (2003). Supporting Sustainable e-learning: A UK National Forum. In: Proceedings of the 20th Annual Conference of the Australasian Society for Computers in Learning in Tertiary Education (ASCILITE) (Crisp, Geoffrey; Thiele, Di; Scholten, Ingrid; Barker, Sandra and Baron, Judi eds.), ASCILITE, pp. 730–734.



This article outlines the progress of a national Supporting Sustainable eLearning Forum, funded by the UK Learning and Teaching Support Network Generic Centre. The aim of the forum was to move e-learning on from project innovation to embedded practice, and address questions around the scaleable nature of e-learning. Assimilated views of a wide range of support staff are presented. These include ideas on how to devise strategies for supporting Higher Education lecturers in the design, development and implementation of online courses; disseminate good practice in supporting sustainable approaches to eLearning; and contribute to the ongoing debate in the sharing and reuse of e-learning resources.
