Abstract

Drawing on the authors’ experiences at the University of Lincolnshire and Humberside (ULH), this autobiographical narrative explores the development of distance learning strategies for management and business studies students. The authors discuss their own particular experiences and their role in pursuing innovations. Having considered the pedagogical issues involved in working with students at a distance, the paper goes on to discuss innovations to facilitate learning at ULH. This includes the design of text-based materials for distance learning, increasing access via work-based learning, and the university’s involvement in both the Teaching and Learning Technology Programme, (TLTP) and the Extended Learning Environment Network (ELEN) projects. Early evaluations of these projects identify a tension between the apparently boundless technological possibilities and students’ need for the “human” dimension in learning. Developing high quality H(E)-education may depend in some part upon managing that tension.
