Met with Hillary Jenkins from Tourism today and we had a good talk about a City and Guilds course she runs in International Tourism at a Diploma and Advanced Diploma level.

Hillary wants to offer the course more flexibly so as to engage more students especially those who are already in the workplace. We discussed ideas of Recognition of Prior Learning processing people already in the workplace and then offering gap training at a discounted rate. We discussed Open Courseware business models as a way to market the course and capture potential students both locally and internationally. We discussed learner generated content as a model for updating and sustaining resources in the course.

Hillary seemed quite inspired by the ideas and will take them to a management meeting for pre approval. Upon approval we will commence reviewing current content in the course and work towards updating and opening up relevant content. Hillary will get her colleagues along to a Networked Learning workshop, and enquire about the RPL process as it may be used in this Open Courseware, learner generated, recognition of prior learning model for the International tourism course.
