LEaD: Learner Experiences across the Disciplines

The LEaD project recorded the student year through students' own voices. It captured the "critical moments"; students' expectations and experiences of using technology as they make the transition to university, and how this changes as they progress through their first year.

The key questions addressed during the project were:

  • What are students' expectations regarding learning technologies?
  • How do students adapt their approaches to e-learning over their first year at university?
  • What are the key factors that influence students' e-learning strategies?
  • To what extent do students use personal technologies to support their learning?

LEaD was part-funded by JISC and ran from March 2007 to September 2008.
