This research was part of the Flexible Pedagogies: preparing for the future project. The overarching research question guiding the project was: 'Why and to what extent might flexible pedagogies be promoted, and in what ways?'
Part-time learners and learning is one of five main focus strands embedded within the theme of flexible learning and its focus was to:
- identify key drivers for an increasing move towards part-time learning with a focus on national and international policy initiatives; ?
- critique literature to highlight some of the challenges and opportunities created by part-time education;
- survey, collate and evaluate current activity relating to pedagogical theory and practice with a particular focus on part-time learners;
- identify and analyse relevant pedagogies and approaches within the context of flexible learning and delivery for part-time learners;
- present a selection of case studies which illustrate the nature and form of these pedagogies and approaches;
- provide recommendations and information about why and how institutions might
work towards the implementation of these pedagogies and approaches within the context of flexible delivery
