The UsPaCe Project
UsPaCe is funded by the JISC under the JISC Capital Circular 1/07: Cross Institutional Support of Lifelong Learning programme and is a regional, cross-institutional, collaborative project that will investigate the application of suitable Web 2.0 technologies to support:
- Foundation Degree (FdSc, FdA and HNC) learners engaged in Work Based Learning (WBL);
- learners progressing from Foundation Degree to the final year of an Honours degree;
- WBL mentors.
UsPaCe aims to support the needs of WBL learners and mentors via the creation and sharing of resources and by providing online student support for learners in the work-place to be accessed via desktop or mobile devices. Additionally UsPaCe will support and allow tutors, mentors, learners, employers to interact, communicate and share ideas experiences and knowledge.
UsPaCe is a collaborative project managed by Dr Neil Witt and Dr Anne McDermott from the HELP CETL. The project partners are:
