BPS Learning Centre wins e-learning gold
We are very pleased to announce that our adult autism e-learning modules won gold in the category for ‘Excellence in the Production of Learning Content - Not for Profit Sector’ at the E-Learning awards last night.
Now in their 8th year, the E-Learning Awards aim to recognise real excellence in the e-learning industry and are presented by e.learning age. The award recognises excellent content that enables learning for those working in the not for profit sector. Submissions are judged on their contribution to individual learning and performance, the views of learners and other key stake holders, and the impact on organisational performance.
The Professional Development Centre worked with Chartered Psychologists Dr Sally Twist and Dr Anna Dodd, and Nelson Croom to set the content and develop the modules, to help raise awareness of adult autism amongst psychologists and the general public. People with autism helped generate ideas, gave feedback and shared real-life stories that became the core of the course.
The judges explained: "This programme has revolutionised the way a long-standing and very traditional organisation looks at learning. Usage has far exceeded expectations, with news spread largely by word of mouth."
Dr Peter Banister, President of the Society said: "Not only has taking part in this course raised individual awareness of autism, but it also has impacted on the wider provision of autism training. These courses have been a great success in terms of their impact on wider society."
Ann Colley, Chief Executive Officer of the Society, added “This is a welcome and well-earned endorsement of the work of the Learning Centre, and excellent recognition of a successful partnership
