4 Hours Webinar
Webinar Fee : 99 USD
This is an intensive design webinar to help participants make pedagogically informed design decisions that make appropriate use of digital technologies. This might include the design or re-design of face-to-face, blended or online courses. A ‘course’ could be an individual module or a whole course.
By the end of the webinar, participants will be able to:
- Conceptualise the learning design process from different perspectives
- Apply a range of learning design resources, tools and methods to a learning intervention
- Critique a range of pedagogical approaches and the role played by different technologies, in supporting these
- Review and debate the theoretical underpinnings of learning design
- Develop a storyboard, with associated learning activities and assessment elements.
This webinar is designed around the 7Cs of learning design framework, which consists of seven components:
- Conceptualise – which initiates the design process and consists of imagination, design and preparation.
- Create – which covers the ways in which search engines, Open Educational Resource (OER) repositories and social bookmarking can be used to find and collate relevant resources and activities, as well as strategies for creating resources.
- Communicate – which covers the different ways in which communication can be fostered, this includes how to moderate asynchronous and synchronous forums, as well as use of social media.
- Collaborate – which considers how collaboration can be fostered and a review of the different tools that can be used to support collaboration.
- Consider – which considers how reflection can be fosters and how students can demonstrate achievement of the learning outcomes, i.e. the assessment elements.
- Combine – which enables the designer to step back and look at the design from different perspectives, this includes creating an activity profile of how much time students will spend on different types of activities, as well as creating a storyboard of the course.
- Consolidate – implement the course in a real learning context and evaluate how effective it is.
Anyone involved in delivering or overseeing online learning including:
- Educators, Faculty and Teaching Staff
- Deans & Heads of Departments
- Staff working in Teaching and Learning Centers
