© University of South Wales Bending without breaking: developing quality flexible learning experiences Professor Jo Smedley & Mary Hulford April 2014
© University of South Wales Abstract Flexible learning enables learner choice regarding pace, place and mode of delivery to engage with an increasingly diverse range of students. Through formal and informal approaches, it enables every student to develop as an independent learner, study their chosen subject in depth and enhance their capacity for analytical, critical and creative thinking. This paper discusses various learner journeys and the opportunities that flexible learning can offer as a backdrop to considering the attributes of a quality flexible learning experience. 2
