PCET Curricula

This page is a gateway to free (and good quality) learning material that CPCET students might want to use with learners in the Learning and Skills Sector: they are not themselves materials about education and training. They serve as good examples, though, for various purposes within CPCET curricula.

  • NLN Learning Materials - This website provides access to a range of new online learning materials that have been commissioned by the NLN for UK post-compulsory education and training.

  • QiA Excellence Gateway - This is a resource for FE practitioners, promoting the development and use of electronic resources in teaching and learning. The site includes case studies, subject resources and exemplar ILT Strategies.

  • MERLOT - A free and open resource designed primarily for faculty and students of higher education. Links to online learning materials are collected here along with annotations such as peer reviews and assignments.

  • Intute - A distributed service which seeks to enrich learning, research, and cultural engagement by facilitating access to high-quality Internet resources through the development of subject-based gateways.

  • JISC Resource Guides - Provide equivalent support for HE staff and students by directing them to a selection of key, high quality resources in seven subject areas. Each Guide has key resources for the subject area and presents them in both print and Web format.

  • Escalate: Resources Section - A well organised site with materials that range from articles, papers and reports on teaching, learning and assessment to links to free on-line journals and to teaching materials and ideas.

  • JISC Collections Catalogue - "A high quality collection of electronic resources" that are linked to subjects. Some are subscription-based (e.g. "Art Abstracts") but others are free (e.g. Biz/ed and Education Media Online).

  • Jim Crawley provides a similar kind of site for teachers in the Learning and Skills Sector. It was created as a learning project and to help with training PCET Professionals. Described as "a genuinely simple and amateur site", it is now a featured link on the Further Education Resources for Learning (ferl) web site. It is certainly worth browsing to.

  • Informal Education - There is a very useful site for all kinds of material related to informal education (introductory guides (e.g. to Learning Theories), booklists, archive articles etc>).
