JISC (Joint Information Systems Committee) activities support education and research by promoting innovation in new technologies and by the central support of ICT services. JISC provides:

  • A world-class network - JANET
  • Access to electronic resources
  • New environments for learning, teaching and research
  • Guidance on institutional change
  • Advisory and consultancy services
  • Regional support for FE colleges - RSCs

The JISC Design for Learning Programme aims to further develop practitioners understanding of designing effective learning activities involving the use of technology. The projects build on previously funded activities under the e-Learning and Pedagogy strand and the Technical Framework and Tools strand of the JISC e-Learning Programme.

The programme aims to:

  • support practitioners in the process of designing, planning and orchestrating learning activities (‘design for learning’) in a range of learning programmes and contexts across UK further and higher education
  • ensure that the process of design for learning is based on sound pedagogic principles, is evidence-based and learner-centred
  • promote the development and implementation of tools and standards to support the process of design for learning
  • promote the sharing of expertise in design for learning, for example through sharing and re-use of effective pedagogic designs
  • support the establishment of communities, services and resources to promote and sustain effective practice in design for learning.
