Conditions of flexibility: securing a more responsive higher education system is the culmination of the Flexible Pedagogies: preparing for the future series of reports which have considered flexible learning from a range of perspectives.

The report proposes fifteen conditions of flexibility to inject new thinking and new practices into an emerging new age. Flexible provision has the potential to enhance student learning, widen opportunities for participation in higher education, and develop graduates who are well-equipped to contribute to a fast-changing world. This report shows how these conditions of flexibility provide the foundations for the implementation of robust, well-informed and thought-through structures and strategies that will lead the sector into the future.

Conditions of flexibility also specifies the sector’s responsibilities in furthering flexible provision. Although it makes challenging recommendations targetting different levels within the sector, institutions, sector bodies, researchers and students are well placed to begin making them a reality.
