Personal learning networks – the next steps

Research output: Contribution to conferencePoster


This poster will explore the lessons learned from an attempt to evaluate an online non-assessed module which was run for the first time in 2016 as part of a larger MSc Social Work module taken by 26 final year students. The module was co-run by University of Dundee and IRISS (Institution for Research and Innovation in Social Services). It uses a Real World Research Approach to consider the lessons which can be learned from trying out new practice which results in an unexpected or disappointing response. The poster presents the lessons learned in the context of existing literature on personal learning networks (sometimes referred to as personal learning environments). It uses this literature to explore the context within which students might use personal learning networks as they transition into becoming newly qualified social workers.
