Part-time learners

In this first #LTHEchat after our Summer break we’ll be discussing part-time learners. Many of us who take part in #LTHEchat will be, or have been part-time learners in our time, studying for learning and teaching qualifications, plugging away at PhDs, or pursuing CPD opportunities: what lessons can we take away from these experiences to improve the journey for our own part-time students?  Do part-time students face unique barriers or would those in full-time education also appreciate flexible approaches? We’ll consider these and other questions when we return.

The Storify is available here. As there were over 80 tweets this has been curated to make it more easily readable.

The visualisation is available here with thanks to Chris Jobling @cpjobling
