This activity acts as an easy taster introduction to using CompendiumLD to map activities and units. We strongly recommend that after this taster activity you try out the real thing - watch the Getting Started with CompendiumLD SlideShow!
This activity will provide a very quick introduction to the CompendiumLD learning design tool and the Task Swimlane representation which maps an activity at the micro-level.
What you need
- A piece A3 paper
- A page of CompendiumLD node stickers. (See embedded .pdf doc below. This can be downloaded from SlideShare)
- An activity from your course or module to map out (real or scenario)
Define the learning outcome(s) that this activity expects to meet, the tools and resources you have decided to use, and your assessment strategy. Use the node stickers to map out your activity on the A3 paper. Decide yourself the best way to structure your activity map and use pens to make and explain links between nodes (5 mins for a simple activity).
As you are working, ask yourself design questions for example: Who or what is at the centre of the activity? What is the pedagogical impact of the tools and resources chosen? How will students work together? What are you hoping will happen in the activity, and what are the challenges or barriers to achieving this? (35 mins)
Consider the following questions and add to the discussion below:
- Who might be interested in seeing this activity view?
- How easy do you think it would be for someone else to understand your map? What could you add to your map, or how could you restructure it, to help them understand?
- (For support teams) How might a CompendiumLD map of an activity help you talk to course teams about the resources, advice, tools and activities your department offers?
- Where in the course design process do you think course teams could usefully build this view? (10mins)
This activity format is based on the e-tivity format developed by the Adelie Project Team working on the Carpe Diem project.
