I used the Course Features cards on a Design workshop with 11 university librarians this morning.I split the class into 3 groups and gave each a set of cards. We used the sample task on study skills. I asked each group to select about 16 cards that they would use and then rank them in a diamond shape. Each group summarised its diamond on a flip chart. Interestingly, two of the groups chose very similar cards while the third was completely different. We then went on to complete a course map. This all took about 45 minutes. I could have spent longer on the course map.
I got a very positive response form the class. One minor negative - some participants found it difficult to distinguish the purple from the blue coloured cards.
