Learning Technology Innovation Leadership

In addition to our four-stage blended learning teacher training, since 2015 the project has been developing, piloting and hosting online training for LINC managers or lead teachers. Our aim has been to encourage emerging learning technology leadership and build knowledge and awareness of blended learning opportunities and challenges facing local leaders. 

Six cohorts have now completed Part 1 of the training, and three cohorts have finished Part 2. In this report we look at the survey results from participants and the lessons for course enhancement. We also include many thoughtful quotes posted on course discussion boards by participants. For anyone interested in innovating with LINC blended learning, the report has lots of information about what LINC leaders are encountering as they try to put LINC blended learning to work in their institutions. The result we believe is a summary of important lessons for the sector about learning technology innovation.
