Learning Design for Learning Design (HE): Project Overview
Cloud created by:
17 January 2013
Team Members: Helen Walmsley, Sheila MacNeill, Clare Gormley, Daniel Scott(?)
Core Motivations for the project: To develop a design that will help third-level lecturers who need to design and develop effective online learning. We recognise that further assistance/support needs to be provided for those who are novices in this area, particularly.
Common context: We all work with lecturers who want to create online learning activities for their students in both blended and fully online contexts.
Challenges we aim to address: There is a tendency for lecturers to replicate classroom-based approaches possibly because of lack of familiarity with online pedagogies and lack of awareness of the potential tools available.
Suggestions for specific topics so far:
- Using learning design toolkits (eg Compendium)
- Introduction to models of learning and online learning
- Introduction to online socialisation and, in particular, online icebreakers
Our plan is to decide on one (or possibly 2) topics and then to create the learning design(s). Watch this space!
