|The Role of VLEs in the Online Delivery of Staff Development|
The same applies to staff and professional development: a virtual leaning environment will be acceptable as a mechanism for delivery of learning materials to the participant, but little more. This means that traditional content-centred VLEs (such as WebCT, Lotus Learning Space etc.) can be quite good for training or skills based development, but are severely lacking in the interactive facilities required by more reflective development such as might be involved in routed to attaining membership of the Institute for Learning and Teaching in Higher Education.
