Over the past year, it has become apparent that individuals and organisations’ requirements for CPD have changed. There is a demand for more cost effective models of education which meet the needs of regional, international, engineers that are time poor and those whose learning style favours a different method of delivery other than face to face. In response to these changes Engineering Education Australia has established a project, led by Iain Polley of The Moreland Group (TMG), to establish EOL.
EOL will be the site for engineering related people and organisations to access CPD and a broad range of professional development opportunities. EOL will host Learning Assets (LA) of a diverse nature and will include, but not be limited to the following:
* Recorded technical sessions (held at Division offices and recorded)
* Case studies
* Showcasing projects and lessons learned
* Short live and recorded webinar sessions
* Links to television series’ relating to engineering
* Content gained from partner universities
* Online management and business sessions
* And more
Users will be able to search for their requirement, receive a range of available options, select, register and pay, then access their CPD immediately, unless they have chosen a live session or qualification.
To establish the initial 1000+ learning assets, EEA will partner with universities, learned groups, and other companies who have appropriate content.
There will be the opportunity for sessions currently delivered face to face, such as assessor information and information about becoming chartered, to be online as live or recorded sessions. It is not envisaged that face to face delivery will cease, the project is aimed at increasing options in a more cost effective and learner driven way.
Engineering related professionals can access content and will also be encouraged to engage with EEA to deliver content in their area of specialisation.
