British Canoeing shortlisted for prestigious national award

British Canoeing has been shortlisted for a Learning Technology Award in recognition of the Coaching Self-Analysis Tool and Digital Library. 

Learning Technology Award

The Learning Technologies Awards showcase some of the most recognisable, memorable, and life-changing e-learning worldwide. They are internationally recognised and independently judged to the highest and most rigorous of standards.

British Canoeing has been shortlisted in the Best Learning Technologies Project – UK public and non-profit sector for its Coach Self-Analysis Tool and Digital Library.

Introduced in October 2019, the Coach Self-Analysis Tool and Digital Library have transformed the coaching learning experience and have become industry leading.

The Coach Self Analysis Tool provides users with an overview of current practice, and offers considerations to support learning and development.

These considerations link to the Digital Library, which includes online materials such as academic papers, videos, podcasts and eLearning.

Lee Pooley, Head of Coaching and Qualifications, British Canoeing said: “It is a great recognition to have been shortlisted for this UK prestigious award, I could not be more proud of the team.

“The British Canoeing Coach Self Analysis tool emerged from an idea written on a serviette in a coffee shop to Ricky, Digital Education Solutions Lead, developing an outstanding resource that supports paddlesport coaches across all disciplines in their learning and development.

"UK Coaching and several other National Governing Bodies in the sports sector have been very interested in working with us to develop similar systems for their coaches and we hope that we are able to support these organisations in developing digital solutions for coach learning in the future.”

The winners of the awards will be announced on 18 November.
