Abstract

After an e-learning benchmarking exercise carried out during the summer of 2006, the Institute of Education set up its Pathfinder Project ? PREEL ? with the aim of connecting the Institute?s e-learning research with its e-learning practice. The project implemented three strategies to support academic staff in the redesign of their courses: a scoping review of e-learning research being carried out in the IoE and its local partner institutions, staff development activities and the provision of personalised support to course teams. Based on interviews with participants, this article reports on the evaluation of the PREEL project, paying specific regard to the link between research and practice and the ways that practitioners accounted for this relationship, and discusses the implications of the project for research-based practice. The results indicate that the research-practice link was not always established in the ways planned, but that links were established, sometimes in ways not foreseen by the project team.
