Flexible learning in practice

Here is an interview recording I have made where I asked Carolyn McIntosh about her experiences of flexible learning and the development of an undergraduate midwifery degree at Otago Polytechnic, Dunedin, New Zealand.

The key points for me are:
  • flexible learning is more than delivering material online;
  • students need to be supported as they explore the use of alternative media for their learning;
  • faculty need to be committed to flexible learning ideals and methodology.

As a matter of interest, I interviewed Carolyn using Skype, recorded the conversation using Powergramo which then integrated with Audacity to turn the recording into an MP3 file.
