Learning without borders: podcasting across the wider Europe
Following joint research into the new approaches to learning needed to support students who, for differing reasons, cannot access lifelong learning by full-time attendance at a local training centre, Leeds City College has worked with partners from Greece, Latvia, Poland and Romania on the “Learning without Borders: Podcasting Across the Wider Europe” project. The aims of the project were to:• Review the use of podcasting (audio/media broadcasting over the internet) to promote independently accessed learning for a wide range of target audiences disadvantaged in their access to learning, eg by disability, geographical location or working patterns;• Develop appropriate resources / standard protocols to meet the growing demand for a flexible approach to learning by a growing number of learners who need to fit working life into the framework of learning new skills;• Involve students from each partner organisation to meet the first two aims of the project and to develop their own employability skills – commitment, self-confidence, team working, use of own initiative – all in demand by employers across Europe.Staff and students from each partner organisation met six times over the life of the project to produce a set of products and resources which can be used to support the aims of the project:Used:1.
