'Building stories' activity
This hands-on activity focussed on users and building stories based on what the attendees know about them from their experiences as students, tutors, course authors and developers, involved in learning, support, research or management connected with the VLE. The activity allowed them to contribute and compare stories and assumptions about learners, putting their experiences and objectives at the centre of the discussion. They were introduced to and worked with a card set of personas representing a range of learners/system users and thought about how they would feel faced with a range of scenarios introduced to them during Will Woods' presentation.
This part of the event encouraged the participants to be creative as well as prompting some interesting small group debates.
