Is Flexible Learning For Me?
Flexible Learning is the term used in Athlone Institute of Technology to encompass the range of part-time/evening/on-line/blended learning programmes which are offered in the Institute. Other terms which are often used include Life Long Learning or Adult Education. Flexible Learning is for you if
- You want to upskill or gain additional knowledge in a specific area relevant to your work and can only study on a part-time basis.
- Wish to gain a third level qualification but can only complete a programme on a part-time basis due to other commitments.
- Want to learn about a new area/develop a new skill out of general interest, not related to your career or work.
AIT offers a wide range of programmes in its Flexible Learning portfolio across all of its different academic Departments. Review the programmes on offer and hopefully, you can find a programme/module of interest which suits your needs.
The Faculty of Continuing, Professional, Online and Distance Learning
The Faculty of Continuing, Professional, Online and Distance Learning is responsible for the design and delivery of accredited, professional and non- accredited flexible learning programmes across the Institute. Using the latest technologies and effective pedagogies the faculty supports the delivery of online/blended learning programmes in particular while also delivering programmes in the traditional format.
Through this methodology the faculty ensures that the learner may access the most appropriate learning from any location and via any device (PC, Laptop or Mobile Phone). In designing and developing programmes the faculty works closely with industry ensuring that the content and delivery format meets their needs. In recent years, the faculty has focused in particular on upskilling and transversal skill requirements required currently but also for the workplace of the future.
The faculty programmes are delivered through the Department of Lifelong Learning.
