The Flip project focuses on the delivery of flexible work-based learning to engineering postgraduate students who are studying whilst in full-time employment. During the project research was carried out to identify good practice in e-learning and pilot studies were undertaken to test the findings. In the project pilots the project team attempted step changes in methodology and style to investigate an e-learning approach that would enable flexible learning in the workplace. In this paper, attempts at putting e-learning theory into practice are described together with good and bad experiences, in order that others attempting similar activities might benefit from the successes and avoid making the same mistakes. Real-life problems and difficulties arising from the project are highlighted, especially where these relate to learning and teaching cultures, technology, pedagogy and the systems development process. The implementation of two pilot modules is described to demonstrate the impact, on both staff and students, of a significant change in teaching and learning styles and to indicate how the change process could be managed successfully.
