Purpose

The TELIC community is sharing and celebrating the experiences of the course and its ongoing collaboration to highlight the value of postgraduate study to professional development and the workplace.

Background

The original part-time masters in E-learning, Multimedia and Consultancy (MSc ELMAC) was established in 1999 as a collaboration with Hogeschool van Arnhem in Nijmegen (HAN) university in the Netherlands. This collaboration ceased in 2008 when the course was revalidated as Technology Enhanced Learning, Innovation and Change (MSc TELIC) but the involvement of Dutch and Belgian students, tutors and alumni has continued.

There have been approximately 85 graduates and there are currently 23 students taking the course.
