About: I am the Programme Manager for ALPS (Assessment & Learning in Practice Settings) and am based at the University of Leeds.

This Centre for Excellence in Teaching & Learning (CETL) is is a collaborative programme between five Higher Education Institutions: the University of Bradford, the University of Huddersfield, the University of Leeds (lead); Leeds Metropolitan University, and York St John University. There are 16 professions across the partnership from Audiology to Social Work, and a wide range of partners including Yorkshire and the Humber NHS, practice networks and professional bodies.

My main focus within the ALPS programme over the last two years has been the management of the Mobile Technologies work. This involved the delivery of e-learning tools to mobile devices via a shared Mobile Services Platform, a unique IT solution with a central service that ties into the authentication, student data and virtual learning systems of each of the 5 HEIs. This is a complex e-learning package including interprofessional assessment tools alongside the students’ use of the devices for immediate reflective learning through audio, visual and text capture it is encrypted and securely uploaded via the Mobile Services Platform to an e-portfolio, anytime, anywhere.

ALPS aim is to ensure that students graduating from courses in Health and Social Care are fully equipped to perform confidently and competently at the start of their professional careers. We have used the mobile technology to help enhance students learning whilst on their practice placements and we have a particular interest in supporting students to become reflective practioners.

Interprofessional learning/assessment and the involvement of service users (patients) and carers in the education and assessment of students have also been key areas of interest for the ALPS programme.
