Cloud created by:
11 January 2013
I would like to design a short module (or perhaps series of short sessions) which provided some scaffolding for PGCert in Academic Studies (or similar) to combine the theory of course design with some more practical/pragmatic experience of using some of the learning design tools which are now availalbe e.g. LAMS, LDSE. This would hopefully encourage students to take their ideas and actually use (and share them). It would also be useful as a stand alone resource for anyone with a spare half hour or so.
Outline of exisiting course outline:
Course (re)Design module:
Aim: to provide participants with the necessary educational understanding and pracitcal skills to desing an effective coures in their discipline.
Objectives: course particpants will:
- explore the thinking underpinnng teaching, learning and assessment with your discipline including drivers and opporuntities
- Critically evaluate an existing design in relation to current educational ideas drawn from research and practice
- Design or re-design a course to effectively meet the needs of learners and to satisfy disciplinary and institutional requirements
- Reflect on the quality and effectiveness of your (re)desing from both an educational and pragmatic perspective.
Assisgnments - 3 x written submissions ( 1 x 500 word outline, 1x 1500 essay word design and reflection on design, 1x 1500 essay design of learning task and crical reflection on its educational potential.
