  • 10:00 - 10:30         What can TEL Design offer – Mat Schencks and Sue Lowe (Senior TEL Designers, LTI)

Mat and Sue will talk about how TEL Design can support module teams, both in the design process during module production and with evaluating modules using learning analytics during presentation.

  • 10:30 - 11:00       Creating a curriculum-focused learning community. The S111 experience – Rafael Hidalgo (Senior TEL Designer, LTI)

S111 is a new, all on-line entry module in STEM in which the majority of students (62% for 16J) are new to the OU. The Module Team was keen to foster the creation of a learning community and to support this, they combined the use of Social Media with a live, in-campus webcasted event in which students were able to participate remotely. Rafael supported the team as Senior TEL Designer and will talk about his work in supporting the team.

 Preliminary results show a high level of engagement and the lessons learnt are already feeding back into the 17B presentation.

  • 11:15 - 11:45    Presentations by Interactive Media Developers in LTI - Mustafa Bektik and Will Rawes (Interactive Media Developers, LTI)

Used in S217, S201 and S112 amongst others, and will also demonstrate the S112 SimCity model that is an interactive/graphic display of a spreadsheet with complex calculations underneath that was provided by the academic.

  • 11:45 Services the Library can offer to module teams in production and presentation - Wendy Chalmers and Andre Maingot (Learning and Teaching Librarians, Library)

This presentation will give an overview of the services the Library can offer to module teams in production and presentation.  I will describe how Library resources can support pedagogy, by integration into module materials and use as resources for independent learning and research. The Library has a role in developing students’ digital and information literacy skills, and will work with module teams to ensure students develop DIL skills, which are both required to achieve academic success and sought after by employers.  During module presentation the Live Engagement team offers module targeted live sessions which typically support students in finding sources for assignments, while a Library Helpdesk is available 24/7. 

An alternative to using Library subscription material is rights clearances for third party material.  Academic liaison librarians, and the Licensing & Acquisitions team can advise module teams on the best options.  The Licensing & Acquisitions team will give an overview on how they work with module teams to clear rights for assets, what advice they can provide and what alternative content be used.
