The four projects chosen to explore how students can support staff in their use of learning technologies were announced on Friday 7 December 2018. The projects commissioned through the programme are led by Bishop Auckland College, Basingstoke College of Technology, City Lit, and Heart of Worcestershire College. Further details of the announcement are available in the press release.
As is usual with Outstanding, Teaching and Learning Assessment (OTLA) projects, they will focus on developing evidence-based solutions. In this phase, the projects will explore what works and how best to build trainer/teacher skill and confidence in the development of student-staff partnerships and in the use of technology to support and enhance learning.
The projects will continue through to March 2019, with the final set of outputs being pulled together into a toolkit in April. The toolkit will be supported by a series of practice-sharing webinars.

The programme was launched in October 2018. It is funded by the Education and Training Foundation (ETF) and managed by the SDN.
