Developed for anyone in the University with a teaching role, Learning Design workshops provide an opportunity to step back and ask “What do I want my students to achieve? How do I want them to learn?” They offer a safe and supportive space in which to review the balance and sequencing of the different types of learning activities that currently comprise your paper, module or short course.
Hands-on techniques, including card-sorting and storyboarding, enable you to explore possible alternatives and their potential implications for both you and your students. What could be gained? Might anything be lost? Where, and how, could Canvas and other digital technologies enhance students’ learning – and your teaching?
By the end of the two-hour workshop, you will have produced a high-level storyboard for your chosen paper, module or short course, together with an action plan for developing the learning activities further.
