The Technology, E-learning and the Web modules enable all HE career and employability professionals to design and deliver technology-enhanced solutions in their work. You will develop understanding and skills in technology, e-learning and the web in two contexts (CE938) or one context (CE925). You will also develop confident and creative practice in relation to technology, e-learning and the web informed by key career development concepts. The modules focus on developing effective practice appropriate to a range of career and employability-related roles e.g. management, education, marketing, employer-facing, information, advice, guidance or coaching.

Summary of teaching
CE938 (30 hrs) and CE925 (15 hours) are taught using a blended approach consisting predominantly of an intensive two day workshop with further materials provided via a virtual learning environment plus webinar and/or tutorial support. The modules require attendance at a two day workshop advertised in the AGCAS training calendar as Technology, E-learning and the Web.
Module timing and duration
Usually, this module runs annually. The two day workshop usually takes place in July. Participants are allowed 5 months to complete.
The assignment consists of a 5000 word (CE938) or 2500 word (CE925) project (100%). Typically, participants are asked to evaluate one or two areas of technology, e-learning or web-related provision in relation to their context.
