DEPARTMENT FOR CONTINUING EDUCATION

The Department for Continuing Education exists to make the
University accessible to men and women in ways which complement
the University's provision for its resident members. Each year
the department mounts several hundred courses, either part-time
or short full-time, covering most subjects taught within the
University (except management and clinical medicine). Courses
last anything from one day to ten weeks (full time), and between
ten weeks and two years on a part-time basis. Currently about
15,900 students enrol annually for the department's courses, the
average length of study being twenty hours. A recent development
has been the introduction of technology-assisted courses, using
the Internet to supplement classroom teaching. Apart from a large
number of individual members of the University who offer courses
or give lectures, the Department for Continuing Education works
in co- operation with an increasing number of other departments
and faculties throughout the University. It welcomes expressions
of interest from individuals and departments who wish to become
involved in or to explore continuing education activities. The
department's main provision is organised through three programme
offices (see below), each of which is able to provide more
detailed information on current and forthcoming activities. In
addition, the Kellogg Residential Centre, when not being used for
courses, can occasionally be made available for conferences and
other residential meetings.

section


The Public Programme Office

This Office (Director: Mr R.T. Rowley) offers to the public a
wide range of study opportunities in most academic disciplines
through part-time day, evening and short residential courses. In
1996–7 almost 12,000 adult students enrolled on lifelong
learning programmes offered through the Public Programme
Division. Many programmes have open entry and require no formal
entry qualifications. However, the majority of courses are now
either award-bearing or carry higher education credit. The award-
bearing courses are offered at access undergraduate and post
graduate level, and do call for evidence of ability to complete
the programme satisfactorily. During the summer the Public
Programme Division offers a series of study opportunities for
domestic and European students through the Oxford University
Summer School for Adults, a Local History Summer School and the
Summer Academy based at Keble College. The Division engages a
large number of part-time tutors, both from within the University
and outside, and individuals interested in offering specific
courses or contribution to other programmes are invited to
contact the office. Details of all courses are publicised in the
Annual Prospectus or are available at any time from the Manager
of Public Programmes (telephone: Oxford (2)70360).

The Continuing Professional Development Centre

Short and extended courses

This Centre (Director: Dr M.A. Gray) works with departments and
faculties throughout the University to offer courses designed to
meet the needs of individuals and organisations drawn from
industry, the professions, commerce, and academia. Courses vary
from one- or two-day intensive updating courses based on the
latest academic research to longer courses enabling professionals
to review advances in specialised fields, and acquire new areas
of expertise and qualifications. Areas covered include
engineering, law, information technology and computing,
mathematics, biomedical science, and personal skills development.
Contributors to courses include Oxford academics and research
staff and experts from other universities and organisations in
the UK and abroad.

Conferences/Seminars/Workshops

The CPD Centre is also able to offer a conference organisation
and management service to colleagues within the University and
other organisations. The CPD Centre has specialist skills and
more than fifteen years' collective experience or organising and
managing conferences, seminars, and training courses for up to
500 delegates. The Centre provides a `total conference package'
which combines the best of personal service with the highest
professional standards. Services offered include the following:

—Conference planning and academic support

—Budget preparation and account management

—Venue sourcing, including residential accommodation,
lecture theatres, hotels, and catering support

—Organisation of exhibitions and displays, design and
provision of publicity

—Promotion/advertising/marketing support

—Mailing; compilation of databases

—Organisation of social programmes, excursions, and tours

—Translation and interpretation services, technical and
audio- visual support

—Pre-registration management and on-site registration
services, preparation of pre-prints, binders, badges

The International Programmes Office

This office (Director: Dr A. Hawkins) offers a wide range of
courses to undergraduates, graduates and continuing education
students from around the world. These courses include year-long
full- time programmes for Japanese graduates and diplomats from
the Republic of China, Taiwan, as well as a large number of
three- or four-week courses held during the summer for students
from Europe and North America. Programmes are held in partnership
with institutions such as the Smithsonian Institution, the
University of California at Berkeley, Duke University, the
University of Virginia and Northwestern University in America.
International Programmes also works with the British Council, the
European Commission, and the FCO, as well as offering courses in
partnership with the Bodleian Library and many other departments
and colleges within the University. Subjects covered in these
courses include topics from law and industrial relations through
to archaeology, art history, and the physical and biological
sciences. Tutors are drawn from Oxford academic and research
staff, and expertise is also recruited from outside the
University. Programmes vary in size from small groups of twenty
students to larger programmes of over 200 participants. During
the summer many residential International Programmes, including
the Oxford University Summer Programmes in English Literature and
in History, Politics and Society, are held in colleges throughout
Oxford, in addition to those held at the Rewley House Residential
Centre. Over the next few years the range of courses offered by
the International Programmes Office will be expanded, drawing in
more students from Europe, from countries formerly part of the
Soviet Union, and from elsewhere around the world. As the work
of the International Programmes Office expands, approaches would
be welcomed from those colleges, departments and other
institutions who have accommodation from which they would like
to generate further income or from individuals with suitable
qualifications interested in teaching on international
programmes. Telephone: Oxford (2)70456.

Technology-Assisted Lifelong Learning (TALL)

TALL (Director: Jonathan Darby) was established in 1996 with
support from the Esmée Fairbairn Charitable Trust and the
W.K. Kellogg Foundation to investigate and develop new ways of
using technology to support lifelong learning. It is directed by
Jonathan Darby who previously directed the HE Funding Councils'
and DENI's Computers in Teaching Initiative. Many aspects of on-
line education remain poorly understood. TALL is conducting
research into:

Models of delivery—identifying optimal ways
of using technology to deliver courses and educational
services;

international transferability—addressing
issues such as use of language, culture, educational systems and
differing educational needs with the aim of ensuring that Oxford-
produced on-line courses are designed in such a way that they
will be attractive to students outside the UK;

markets for on-line courses—using surveys
to develop an understanding of the nature of the market for on-
line courses.

TALL is seeking to use technology to design courses of three
types:

Hybrid: short intensive periods in Oxford
punctuate Internet- supported study to create a course which uses
each form of teaching for the purposes to which it is best
suited.

Fully remote: a course in Italian for
Intermediate and Advanced Learners has been completed with EU
support which can be wholly completed at a distance. A second
course, `Databases for Historians', is about to be piloted.

Curriculum on demand: an innovative teaching
system based on the finding that many students on continuing
professional development courses have highly specific needs that
are only partially met by a group-based course. Each student
takes a course that is tailored to their specific needs.

The TALL programme would welcome ideas for on-line courses from
university colleagues.

academic years, from October 1998 to June 2001. The person appointed
should have the following qualifications and experience:
