Specific challenges exist in developing the essential skills of external tutors new to teaching and moderating online. External/practitioner tutors are those who have come into HEI teaching environments from industry or professional positions and are contracted by the HEI, to develop and deliver modules, particularly on professional education programmes. This presentation discusses the discusses the development process of two short online courses to address these challenges and to meet the needs of the practitioner tutors.

The presentation is an online event with an opportunity for discussion.

The course development work is part of the HEA-funded REAP project to develop a best practice framework for engaging practitioner/external tutors in the development and delivery of modules on flexible/online professional education programmes. The REAP project is a collaboration between UL, MIC & LIT funded by the HEA Innovation and Transformation 2018 call.
