success stories from the e-learning team

The following is an outcome of the success stories from the e-learning Team, both for them as individuals and for the general elearning agenda. The aim of the exercise was to us to share the what we perceive as successes and why. It is designed to build on a previous months activity where we looked at factors which enable, or act as barriers to achieving our work goals.

They will be on my Flickr account – with the tag eatbath-team – url to come.

I’m particular please to see a number of references to how we’ve achieved these successes, in particular the reference to the team. A key indicator for me isn’t the product of our endeavours, bu the process and the values we collective use to create the products. Therefore, we design and plan our projects, pilots and services, these are allocated based on available resource, and managed appropriately. However, the successful deliver is based on the values and approach we adopt, in terms of how we work with each other, and how we work and interface with our clients (users).
