This session will describe the collaborative team approach and provide some examples of collaborative learning design models used at British Columbia Institute of Technology. BCIT is characterized by a considerable range of programs and students, which requires careful consideration of the teaching and learning context and the various stakeholders – professional governing bodies, industry, subject matter experts, and program requirements – in the development of learning and teaching materials. As a result, the e-learning continuum is quite varied at BCIT and presents both challenge and opportunities.
Tannis Morgan is an Instructional Development Consultant with the Learning and Teaching Centre at BCIT, where, in addition to helping programs integrate educational technology into their programs and courses, she also helps programs with curriculum development, faculty development, and educational research.
